What temperature are you setting to print for this? 


 PLA print temperature is typically 185 to 205  degrees Celsius.  Carbon fiber is a bit higher  


Carbon Fiber Print Temperature typically is : 240-260 degrees Celsius

    • "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.
