eSun PA-GF FibreGlass Nylon Filament
3D 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
