Carbon Fiber Nylon

CF-Nylon (Carbon Fiber PA66) is created by adding micro-carbon fibers to nylon. This allows you to get a tough material capable of printing parts with stiffness, impact resistance, and high tensile strength. CF-Nylon is our most expensive material but can be the most impressive.

Additional Recommendations

Print settings are very similar to CF-PETG.
Check our slicing configurations at http://forum.gcreate.com/index.php?resources/categories/slicing-configuration-files.2/
Use G10 FR4 heated bed or geckotek cold printing bed.
Curling does not occur often. Use 0.4mm or 0.5mm nozzle for optimal results.
Has a grainy textured finish.
The Carbon Fiber pigments help with warping but does not add much strength.
Only comes in black.
