ColorFabb_HT instead of Carbonfill

Recommended Posts

Posted · ColorFabb_HT instead of Carbonfill

Recently I've been playing with the thought of upgrading my UMO+ with a dual fan setup. However, I don't have a stainless steel nozzle and a roll of Carbonfill laying around to print the fan cap, as recommended in the Ultimaker upgrade guide. What I do have is a few small samples of ColorFabb_HT, which I bought for experimentation purposes. Looking at the glass transition temperatures HT should be able to handle the heat even better than ColorFabb's carbon filament (HT: 100C vs XT-CF20 75C).

 

So would it make sense to use HT for this purpose?

I would think so. I did my fan caps with their nGen filament which I think has a lower melt temp. that HT

Thanks, I'll give it a try in that case (after I've fixed a few issues with my printer though)! I'll post the results here once I know more!
