    Cuts composed of carbon fibers provide excellent structural strength.

    Carbon fiber filament is composed of a polymer (PLA) and cuts of carbon fibers (15 %).
    These incrusiones carbon fiber filament PLA achieve a much stiffer. This increased rigidity is achieved at the cost of reduced flexibility makes this material ideal for parts that are not scheduled to be bent such as brackets, tools, propellers or carcasses or similar drones.
    This rigidity of the filament carbon fiber provides excellent structural strength and good adhesion between layers with very low distortion.

    As for the finish of this filament highlights its matte black finish with a slight sheen due to carbon fibers embedded. The cuts carbon fiber are processed with a size small enough to not cause blockages in the nozzles but large enough to provide rigidity. Tests have been conducted successfully with nozzles of 0.5 mm and head direct drive.

    It is advisable to use a hardened steel nozzle or Olsson Ruby as the carbon fiber is quite abrasive and wear out the brass nozzles.

    The print is recommended to clean the nozzle by passing through it PLA or ABS to avoid leaving traces of carbon fiber in it. Carbon Fiber PLA in filament state is more fragile than the standard PLA so must be handled carefully to avoid breakage. Optimum printing temperature can range between 195ºC and 220ºC according to each 3D printer.

    Printing of this filament is just as easy to standard PLA. Although it is not necessary to have a warm bed to print this filament, if she have put it at 50-60 ° C it is recommended. The adhesion of the first layer is key and probably the most important factors for good impressions. so you can use Magigoo, BuildTak or 3DLac.
