High Temp Resistant Carbon Fiber PLA - 1.75mm, 3kg Spool
High Temperature Resistant (Annealable) Carbon Fiber / PLA Blend - on a large 3kg Spool
This new formulation is higher performing, more obviously heat treatable, and lower cost. This tough PLA prints with ease but has a potential Heat Deflection Temperature (HDT) of as much as 140°C (285°F) depending on post-processing. This means parts retain more stiffness and form at higher temperatures (no warping on your sunny car dashboard).
No abrasive fillers so expect normal wear with standard nozzles.
Use standard PLA parameters with standard build surface preparation (blue tape, glue stick, or BuildTak). No heated bed required. Some shrinkage may occur in the annealing process, so dimension critical parts may need to be scaled as much as 2.5% to compensate.
For maximum performance, your prints should be heat treated (i.e. crystallized) in an oven until you see a change from translucent to opaque. There is an obvious visual change indicating the improved performance! We had good luck in a lab oven at 110C (230F) for an hour or less. We recommend leaving the supports on your parts, placing them on a non-radiating surface (like glass, ceramic, or composite), and letting them cool in the oven to minimize distortion. Parts can be baked at a lower temperature (though must be above 60C for any change to occur) for a longer time with less risk of unwanted deformation.
Also available in Iridescent Ice colour

High Temp Resistant (Annealable) Carbon Fiber / PLA blend on a large 3kg SpoolThis product has no specific warranty. Bilby 3D will honor obligations under Australia Consumer Guarantee regulations if and where they apply to this product
This amazing filament is a blend of PLA and carbon Fiber by ProtoPasta in the USA. It prints easily at 230-245 degrees on a cold bed. We used glue on a glass bed for our test. Tendancy to leave small balls/pimples on surface which easily clean up. Will wear nozzle so we advise using a wear resistant nozzle (sold seperately). Produces impressively strong models with minimum fuss and difficulty.
