This filament's resulting prints are very stiff and can withstand great stresses, perfect for when you need extra strength in your projects. This is due to the carbon fibers used in this filament, which are small enough to make it through the printing nozzle, but long enough to add rigidity. See More
The extreme rigidity and stiffness of this material enables the user to print things that normally can't be properly 3D printed. It’s great for printing frames, supports, shells, propellers and even tools. All these applications are interesting for users that are drone builders, RC hobbyists, or similar. See More
Since this filament contains tiny carbon fibers, it’s difficult to print with standard extruders. Adjusting the correct feed rate and printing temperature specifically for your extruder will be necessary. Note that it is also recommended to use stainless steel nozzles while printing this material, since it has been reported that regular brass nozzles may deform while printing this material. See More
Nylon and nylon-like materials are hard to work with and the setup process is quite cumbersome. A heated bed plate is absolutely necessary or the material won't even stick to the plate. You’ll also need to coat the heated base plate with Kapton tape or Garolite. As the material is quite flexible, non-direct-drive extruders won't work and a very short direct-drive extruder is needed. Getting everything just right takes some time, and it will be a while before you can start making decent quality prints. See More
The full technical documentation is available at Taulman’s website. This is especially useful for professional engineers and those in the academic field. Furthermore, the filament was reviewed, tested and certified by St. Louis Testing Laboratories, ensuring the published technical data is correct. See More
