Carbon fibre filament for use in ULT2

Can anyone suggest the correct carbon fiber filament which I can use in the Ultimaker 2? Will it work with the standard nozzle? Any suggestions would be great. Plastic

You can use most of the carbon fiber filled filaments out there for the UM2, but you should really upgrade to the Olsson Block before starting to print carbon fiber filament, the CF filled filaments wears out about three standard brass nozzles per roll, so using the standard UM2 nozzle will be costly, you should instead use the Olsson block with harder nozzles like E3D's Hardened Steel nozzles.

The only CF filament i have used is Colorfabb XT-CF20 and i quite like it.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
