The PA-CF Low Warp is a one of a kind polyamide formulation with the ability to print nearly warp free on non heated buildplatforms. Low infill prints come out perfectly flat on cold bed for higher infill prints 40/50C temperature is enough to obtain flat prints. PA-CF has a continuous service temperature of 120C.
PA-CF low warp is infused with carbon fiber for increased stiffness. Users are recommended to use wear resistant nozzles, such as E3D Hardened steel nozzle or Olsson Ruby.
PA-CF Low Warp excels in tensile and impact strength and allows continues use at 120°C while retaining sufficient mechanical properties.
The formulation has been modified to reduce uptake of moisture and it also takes about 4 times longer to reach the saturation point compared to unmodified PA6. This makes PA-CF Low Warp less affected by moisture then most other nylon filaments available in the market.
Adviced 3d printing temperature:
Adviced 3d print speed:
30 - 40 mm/s
Advised Heated bed (if you have one, not strictly necessary):
ambient - 50C
Advised layer height
For this material we recommend a minimum of 0.2mm layer height. Due to the length of the fibers layers lower then 0.15mm can cause issues such as clogging or partial clogging of the nozzle.
50% fan cooling is a good starting point, this gives best performance on overhangs and small details. For best mechanical performance try printing with the least amount of cooling needed, for optimal layer adhesion.
Note that Carbon Fibre is abrasive and will accelerate the wear of brass extruder nozzles. Hardened steel or stainless steel nozzles are recommended to use with this filament.
