The PA-CF Low Warp is a one of a kind polyamide formulation with the ability to print nearly warp free on non heated buildplatforms. PA-CF Low Warp excels in tensile and impact strength and allows continues use at 120°C while retaining sufficient mechanical properties.
CARBON FIBER IS ABRASIVE
Highly abrasive filament: Hence it is useful to pair wth E3D Hardened Steel nozzles - of which one is included in this bundle!
MORE ABOUT PA-CF
PA-CF low warp is infused with carbon fiber for increased stiffness.
PA-CF Low Warp excels in tensile and impact strength and allows continues use at 120°C while retaining sufficient mechanical properties.
The formulation has been modified to reduce uptake of moisture and it also takes about 4 times longer to reach the saturation point compared to unmodified PA6. This makes PA-CF Low Warp less affected by moisture then most other nylon filaments available in the market.
Due to high stiffness of 2.85mm filament we recommend users to use spoolmounts which have some friction between spool and holder, to prevent unspooling of filament.
Advised 3d printing temperature:
Adviced 3d print speed: 30 - 40 mm/s
Advised Heated bed (if you have one, not strictly necessary): ambient - 50C
For heated glass plate buildsurface we can recommend using 3DLac for extra adhesion.
Advised layerheight For this material we recommend a minimum of 0.2mm layerheight. Due to the length of the fibers layers lower then 0.15mm can cause issues such as clogging or partial clogging of the nozzle.
Cooling fan 50% fan cooling is a good starting point, this gives best performance on overhangs and small details. For best mechanical performance try printing with the least amount of cooling needed, for optimal layer adhesion.
