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 :?:

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

NRHK....The filaments I use are from
www.filaments.ca. In Canada.
