What Strong Filament Do You Recommend ?

Postby Rockman » Tue Nov 08, 2016 4:13 am

No ABS please.

Nylon
Polycarbonate
PLA with carbonfiber
Other?

Of the above mentioned, which would be easier to print and why ?

Thanks

there is a new carbon nano-tube/nylon mix that is likely the strongest thing out there

In my experience, modified PLAs are quite good strength-wise. Surprisingly strong actually. Then there are PETs, E3Ds EDGE is quite good in strength and layer adhesion in my experience. Particle filled mixes are cool looking, and sometimes stiff, but, at least in my personal experience, not stronger or stiffer than other non-filled materials.

In fact, I was particularly disappointed by Colorfabb XT CF-20. 3D Prima select PLA was both tougher and stronger. Maybe even stiffer. Didn't look as cool though.

@walshlg Do you have a link? Sounds interesting, but I doubt it will be that stong. Might be conductive though.

What about:
Taulman Alloy 910

Has anyone tried this nylon filament ?
What was your experience and any tips on settings ?
