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.
