Benefits of CarbonX PC+CF Include:

  • High thermal properties, Polycarb itself has a Tg of 147°C
  • Amorphous structure gives it low, near isotropic shrinkage
  • Further improved stiffness and dimensional stability with the addition of carbon fiber reinforcement
  • Very low odor emitted while printing
  • Wide processing range of 280-310°C

What Is It?

Fibers 5-10 micrometers wide made of carbon. The fibers are aligned following the axis of the material.

This, along with their physical makeup, are what give this material its excellent properties.

What Does It Do?

Carbon Fibers demonstrate a lot of desirable material properties:

  • High stiffness
  • High tensile strength
  • High heat tolerance
  • High chemical resistance
  • Low weight
  • Low thermal expansion

What Is It Good For?

Ideal for any applications which require light weight and rigidity.

Carbon fiber reinforced parts, designed to use less material and save weight, is extremely popular in aerospace, civil engineering, the military, and motorsports.

  • Recommended Print Settings:

    • Extruder: 280-310°C
    • Bed Temp: 110-120°C
    • Nozzle: We currently recommend a hardened steel nozzle with a minimum diameter of 0.4mm.
    • Other: Ideal layer height is 60% of nozzle diameter. We do not recommend printing layers smaller than 0.2mm with carbon fiber reinforced filaments.
    • Bed Prep: Magigoo Bed Prep AdhesiveNano Polymer Adhesive, and 3DXTECH Polyimide Tape gives us the best results
    • Heated Chamber: Recommended
    • Supports: Water soluble AquaTek X1 USM works great for complex parts.
    • Drying Instructions: 120°C for 4 hours.

    90°C for 4 hours
