Carbon fibre filament for use in ULT2

Recommended Posts

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.
