eSun PA-CF Carbon Fiber Nylon Filament3D Printer Store is Introducing the most functional 3D Printing filaments from the world to our New Zealand 3D Makers. We have NZ's Largest range of filaments in stock ready to send from right here in Auckland! Important Note: Most Carbon Fibre Filaments on the market are not really 'Carbon Fibre performance'. They are simply PLA with 5% of Carbon fibre mixed in. These offer NO improvement to functional capability as the base polymer is still PLA with only 5% fibre. They simply look like Carbon but will still soften at 55C, & crack as easily as cheap PLA does. These filaments will also 'De-Laminate' quickly under load. Please be careful of these filaments & ONLY use them for cosmetic things. This Nylon has 20% Carbon Fibre in it. High Strength, High Rigidity, Good Toughness, Wear Resisting Good flame resistance, Flame-retardant Level: UL94-V2; 2.85mm Filament diameter designed for 3mm compatible 3d printer, like Ultimaker, Creatbot, Taz etc PA Nylon has several advantages as a material. Adding 20% of Carbon Fibre increases its heat resistance! CF also minimise the negative challenges of 3d printing with Nylon. Thats why our esun ePA-CF carbon fibre filament has several actual usable advantages as a true functional 3d printing material.
Recommend Print Settings: Please see our article here on how to 3D Print Carbon FibreActive Heated chamber recommended for the best performance. Consider our Creatbot F-430 3D Printer if you intend to 3D Print Functional Carbon Fibre parts in a production like manner.
eSun PA-GF FibreGlass Nylon Filament3D Printer Store is Introducing the most functional 3D Printing filaments from the world to our New Zealand 3D Makers. We have NZ's Largest range of filaments in stock ready to send from right here in Auckland! We are often asked about when to use Glass Fibre vs Carbon Fibre. Glass Fibre has very high surface abrasion resistance along side all the other features of improved heat defection. Both Glass & Carbon provide very similar qualities. However, glass is generally stiffer than Carbon. But Carbon can offer improved loading as it flexes more. In many respects, both filaments have the same improvements over 3d printing with pure Nylon. So if you need higher surface wear capability, go with Glass Nylon. And if you need better impact resistance, go with Carbon Nylon. 1.75mm Filament diameter designed for all 3d printers like Creatbot, Wanhao, Prusa, etc
Recommend Print Settings:All materials with additives like Carbon Fibre or metals tend to need a few considerations.If you've printed with Carbon Fibre Nylon before, you will find Glass Filled Nylon to work with almost identical settings. Using a larger nozzle (0.6mm) with slightly fatter layers (0.3mm) & slower head speeds (30mms) is a good starting point. Please see our article here on how to 3D Print Carbon Fibre as that will help with 3D Printing Glass Fibre Nylon as well
