Recommended Print Settings:
- Extruder: 230-260°C
- Bed Temp: 70-90°C
- Nozzle: We currently recommend a hardened steel nozzle with a minimum diameter of 0.4mm.
- Other: Ideal layer height is 60% of nozzle diameter. We do not recommend printing layers smaller than 0.2mm with carbon fiber reinforced filaments.
- Bed Prep: Magigoo Bed Prep Adhesive or two layers of glue stick both work well for us.
- Heated Chamber: Not required
- Supports: We recommend a support material for complex parts because the carbon fiber structure material is challenging to remove if printed at a high infill percentage.
- Drying Instructions: 65°C for 4 hours.
– Low moisture absorption 3x lower the ABS
-Superior chemical resistance compared to other plastics
-Amorphous Structure, near isotropic shrinkage
Carbon Fiber Reinforcement Benefits:
– High Stiffness
– Excellent Strength to Weight Ratios
Due to its high strength, carbon fiber possesses high abrasion characteristics. For top tool capability we recommend a 0.6mm or 0.8mm nozzle. The larger diameter with allow for higher flow rates and reduced system resistance. The increased flow rat will not only support longer nozzle life but also preserve the life of the machines feeder mechanism. With the correct program tuning this material can be printed with a 0.4mm nozzle, for excellent surface finish.
Additionally, hardened steel nozzles are the top recommendation to extend the life of the tool. The carbon fiber will wear out a soft material nozzle in a shorter period of time, leading to printing issues for poor quality printed parts.
