Carbon Fiber PLA Filament (1.75mm & 2.85mm)

This filament prints with the ease of PLA but the stiffness of carbon fiber!

$44.99

This filament is made from top quality PLA and 15% carbon fiber by weight. Prints made with CFPLA are demonstrably more rigid, with easy printing (often using standard PLA settings) and support removal.  Excellent layer adhesion and minimal warpage even without a heated bed make this a great everyday exotic for accurate parts. Layer lines disappear with the beautiful matte black finish.  Also has a slight sheen due to the embedded carbon making it very photogenic!

 

Technical Specs:

  • Available in 1.75mm & 2.85 (3) mm diameters
  • 8" diameter spool
  • Usable on most PLA-compatible printers, such as Makerbot, Flashforge, Dremel, Ultimaker, Printrbot, and more

 

In filament form, CFPLA is slightly more brittle than standard PLA, and requires extra care when handling. 

 

From the maker Proto-Pasta:

We are Professional Makers. We kickstarted the Proto-pasta brand by leveraging ProtoPlant’s machine building competency. We designed and built our own industrial extrusion equipment to convert pellets into filament and create new material mixtures. Users can create new aesthetics and interact with devices in ways not previously possible using 3D Printing

 

Disclaimer: This filament is more abrasive than standard PLA. Be prepared to replace your nozzle and do 1st layer adjustment. Try a wear resistant and/or larger diameter nozzle for increased service intervals.
