Carbon

Carbon filament is great for printing strong and durable parts. It is the perfect choice for mechanical parts, housing, shells or other protective casings. Carbon filament usually contains additional printing materials within its composition (ABS, PETG, NYLON etc.) depending on the product needed.

Printing tips

Steel Nozzles: Carbon filament is very abrasive and it is better to print with steel nozzles to reduce clogging.

Print Speed: To ensure better results, print carbon parts with a lower printing speed. This will ensure better results.

It's superior strength and lightweight properties offer great dimensional stability, reducing the chances of warping or shrinkage. Due to this, carbon filament can be used to produce complex geometries that are much lighter and are more dimensionally stable.

Tooling
