Glass or Carbon Filled


Recommended Posts

Posted · Glass or Carbon Filled

I have an S5 and I need to discover the strongest filament I can get.  I'm assuming that is either a glass filled or carbon fiber nylon. There are so many choices. What are the best brands of these materials and do I need a special support material? It would be nice if these were supported in the Ultimaker Market Place but that's not a requirement.  Or , if there's something else I should try, let me know.  I'l; be using a CC 0.6mm Print core.

    Hey @flyntm,


    I asked our Material Experts and they reccommended this article they wrote on the topic:

    I think it contains the answer you need based on the requirements that you have 😉

    Good luck in finding the material you need 😃
