Carbon fiber filament yields high quality 3D prints based on the ABS material, blended with up to 20% of high mode chopped carbon fiber to provide dimension stability and higher stiffness. The carbon fiber is lightweight, printable, and for an excellent surface.
This filament is produced with premier raw carbon materials, manufactured from leading precision equipment that accurately measures and controls the diameter tolerances. Every hard durable plastic filament spool comes in sealed vacuum with desiccant to stop absorption moisture. If not in use, store the carbon fiber filament in sealed container. This filament is best used with hardened steel nozzles since it’s more wear resistant.

Compatible with most commercial 3D printers, carbon fiber filament is high strength and tough, with small shrinkage in large size model printing. The 3D printer filaments is 100% pure material, not recycled or regrind material, with the latest REACH certificate. To keep carbon fiber filaments dry, every filament spool is packaged inside sealed vacuum polybag with a desiccant.
The filler filament is a new material with carbone fiber finish, made from advanced blend of carbon fiber powder and base filament. The base material can be a common 3D filament material like PLA, ABS, or PETG. The carbon filament prints is quite similar to standard filament materials. The filament is lightweight, with good dimensional stability, strength and stiffness.
Each filament can be printed on build plates, heated or non-heated. It’s recommended to print on blue painters tape to prevent any warping. If you use heated plate, set to 60 C, and the print achieves higher adhesion. The metal fill can likewise be printed on regular glass or kapton tape.
Carbon fiber filaments includes tiny fibers that may not melt. Even if it’s blended with a base material, a chance that carbon fiber filaments clogs the nozzle is much higher. Also, carbon fiber filaments has abrasive properties that may lead to premature wear in aluminum or brass nozzles, so we recommend hardened steel nozzles since this is wear resistant.
Carbon fiber is reinforced into base materials to add strength while keeping the prints lighter in weight. This allows a low-cost option to more expensive materials. The 3D print you produced are more stable in dimensions.
The carbon strands help prevent parts of the printed material shrinking as soon as the 3D print cools down. Be sure that the print settings for the carbon fiber filament like the bed adhesion, extrusion rates, speed, and temperature are the same with the base material’s standard settings. So, if you’re using carbon fiber filaments that’s ABS-based, be sure to use print settings for ABS.
Print at lower speed when you switch to carbon fiber since this doesn’t wear out the extruder and prevents nozzle clogging. We recommend you printing at speed that’s less than 50% of the regular printing speed of the base material. At best, 25% printing speed reduction is the suggested setting.
For 3D dedicated high quality new filaments and environment-friendly printing material, the Carbon Fiber Filament is your best option. Enjoy a whole new world of fun on 3D Printing!
