Carbon Fiber Filamet™
Carbon Fiber Filamet™ is made of TVF's signature binder combined with around 7% carbon fiber. This filament enables any Fused Filament Fabrication printer to produce carbon fiber objects.
"PLA Carbon Fiber is the most easy carbon filament that we have tested in all our experience, the extruder doesn't get embossed and the extrusion is really fine. So the result is perfect print." -Francisco Romañá, Boloberry Technologies
What you'll need to print:
* An FFF/FDM 3D printer
* Stainless or hardened steel nozzle sized at 0.6mm (MK8 and MK10 varieties in the shop)
* Blue painters tape for your print bed. Glue sticks also work on glass print beds
Slicer Setup: Start with a basic PLA profile for your printer. Change the nozzle temperature to 225°C (437°F). Optionally, set the print bed to 40-50°C (104-122°F). Set the flow rate to 135%. Adjust settings from there as needed.
Tip: Put a layer of blue painters tape on the print bed. Filamet™ has great adhesion to the bed.
Nozzle: 0.6mm or larger, hardened steel.
Spool Placement: Reducing friction and pull on Filamet™ during printing is important. Try hanging the filament spool just above the printer.
This product cannot be sintered.
Eliminate tooling and machining costs for short run manufacturing, prototyping, and one-off carbon fiber part needs.
