What is a Carbon Fiber 3D Filament?

Carbon fiber filaments are composite materials formed by infusing fragments of carbon fiber in a polymer base. The process is similar to metal-infused filaments like our TruCopper & TruBronze, but with tiny fibers instead. The polymer base can be of different 3D printing materials, such as PLA, ABS, PETG, or nylon, among others— Naturally, our NylonHD utilizes a Nylon base.

While true carbon fiber materials have long continuous fiber strands that improve mechanical resistance, these filaments contain short particles of around 0.01 mm in diameter. Although this is enough for improving the strength of printed parts, keep in mind that such filaments cannot compare to the actual material.

Using it as a Printing Material

For those seeking more durable 3D printing materials, our NylonHD and PolyPropyleneHD Carbon Fiber filament presents a relatively easy alternative to materials like polycarbonate (PC) or PEEK, which can be more costly and in-demand. Moreover, the increased strength provided by the carbon fiber particles contributes to greater dimensional stability, helping to avoid warping and shrinking.

3D printing these materials, however, does present some issues. The infused carbon fiber particles aren’t melted by the nozzle during extrusion, which may lead to frequent clogging. In addition, these particles work as abrasive agents during extrusion, which over time will wear down a brass nozzles’ internal bore.

You need to reach a temperature range between 240°C to 270°C to print using Carbon Fiber filaments. Heating the bedplate is necessary; 80°C to 100°C should suffice in rendering complicated objects, such as engineering models and moving parts.

Tips:

  • Special nozzles like hardened steel are strongly suggested for printing with composite materials to avoid wear on the internal bore of a standard brass nozzle
  • Run frequent clogging tests between prints to avoid any extrusion issues.
