I tried with colorfab original setting to print on my Ultimaker 2+ and after 6-7 layers clogging and destroy everything. I used olson nozzle as recomended. Does anyone has more details settings for this material ?

Hi, what nozzle diameter are you using? What diameter does colorfabb recommend? Also, at what layer height were you printing? To quote from the colorfabb website:

"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."

I just printed small stuff until now, but I use 0.2mm layers, a 0.4mm Olsson Ruby nozzle on my Ultimaker 2+. Temperatures are 260°C nozzle and 65°C buildplate printing rather slow with 30mm/s and low cooling fan settings. Some gluestick works fine for adhesion. 

Some °C more on the nozzle would be good I think, but the 2+ doesn't allow more than 260°C.

Overall these settings work fine for me.

With filaments like carbon fills and wood files, its better to use a nozzle thats a min of 0.5 to stop the nozzle from blocking easy, its why Ultimaker's high wear nozzle is a 0.6.
