Based on colorFabb_XT, XT-CF20 is a carbon fiber composite material. Loaded with no less than 20% specially sourced carbon fibers we have developed a very stiff and tough 3D printing filament made for functional parts. It is truly a professional printers go-to material, especially for users looking for high melt strength, high melt viscosity and good dimensional accuracy and stability.
Please note: A special point of attention is the abrasive nature of the carbon fibers. In general, these fibers will accelerate the nozzle-wear of brass nozzles, much faster than unfilled filaments. We recommend using stainless steel nozzles or nozzles made with hardened copper alloys.
Print Temp: 240 – 260 C
Heatbed Temp: 60-70 C

NOTE: This filament is highly abrasive. We recommend using a hardened nozzle when printing with this filament. Please click here for E3D's Hardened Steel nozzles or here for E3D's Nozzle X or here for FilamentOne's Sapphire Ruby tipped nozzle.
