Carbon Fiber

Postby Rockman » Wed Jan 04, 2017 7:47 pm

Hi Raisers.

Thought I'd share settings and results in case others are wondering....

Overall impressed with my N2 and the filament.

Just did a few simple prints to test. No warping and printed on PEI surface.... Lid off.

Settings
0.6 Nozzle steel
0.3 mm layer
50mm/s print speed
15mm/s first layer speed
230 noz temp
60 bed temp
Filaments.ca for PLA/CF filament.

excellent work, how is it doing on things like overhang and bridging?

Thanks :)

For the T-Driver tool, I was able to fit in the hex bits without any cleaning. they fit nice and snug, so there wasnt any drooping inside.

I will be printing larger models which will require bridging and have overhangs. Will keep the forum posted on the outcome :D

Have you heard if annealing strengthens layer bonding?

I have tried annealing regular PLA before by just baking them in a standard oven for 15 min and it seems to make the prints more durable.

I must say the PLA/CF filament I used here is strong, quite strong without any annealing. It feels way more rigid, has no flex and even just using the T Driver I printed, you can feel its much more durable. I like it.

If I have some time, I may try to bake some of the PLA/CF prints and see how it goes. I would need to figure out how to conduct some sort of rigidity test :?:

ive not annealed any of mine but i do love the petg carbonfil which is good to print with and i would think would work better annealing as its like abs so baking it at 160 170 ive been told would strengthen it will have to try on my next print which im starting now

Nice! I tried CF pla from RS components but it extrudes really wide... I just used standard PLA settings as RS didn't supply any reccomondations. Any tips to get it more stable on the extrusion width?

Liam, another thing to test is extrusion rate. Some filaments do better fast, some slow. Unfortunately you can't adjust this on the front panel so you have to slice at each different rate

Swampy, may I ask where you bought your petg + CF filament?
