Printing with Carbon fibre

Good Afternoon 


Just a quick question, we have a roll of Carbon fibre and I would like to know how I would be able to use and print with this material and do I need to change any settings like nozzle temp, build plate temp etc.

    Hey @walkerj,


    There are a lot of materials that have a carbon filling. 

    Can you make a picture of the spool, preferably the box? 
    Usually that already give a lot if information. 


    If you are planning to print on an Ultimaker S3, or S5 there is a significant chance that the material supplier already created a profile with the correct Nozzle Temp, Buildplate Temp etc on the Ultimaker Marketplace:


    Beware that carbon filled materials will quickly wear out your nozzle so make sure you have a strong one or that you are prepared to change your nozzle out sooner than ususal.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
