Carbon Fiber Composite 1.75mm PLA Filament (2.2lb)
This is a 2.2lb (1kg) roll of 1.75mm (standard) diameter PLA.
Carbon Fiber PLA filament - includes 14% fine grain carbon fibers for very strong, attractive prints.
We recommend a 220-225 celsius extrusion temp for this particular type of filament. Your machine may vary; consider printing a temperature tower (thingiverse.com) for the best extrusion temperature for your printer. We recommend using a hardened nozzle (stainless steel, hardened steel, etc). The carbon fibers in this filament will quickly wear out standard brass nozzles, resulting in uneven, over-extruded prints.
We sell products that we have personal experience with, and this particular brand of filament is purchased from a Zyltech in Texas, and we used it through thousands of hours of printing during the height of the pandemic in 2020 to print face shields. Please Note: many print quality issues are not necessarily caused by the filament, but can instead be fixed by adjusting slicer settings or making minor tweaks to a a printer's mechanical parts. Please consider taking our basic 3d printing class for more information.
We are a nonprofit, mission-driven organization, so we make no secret of our pricing. We bought this in bulk so that we could get a cheaper price, marked it up a little, and we make a few dollars to put toward our mission of educating and empowering the public to harness manufacturing technology. Our goal is to foster a maker economy in Middleboro and the surrounding region, and we hope you'll find this price competitive with other filament sales online.
