Tutorial on the use of the filament Innovatefil PET with carbon fiber (PET CF)

We have created a new video tutorial where we explain how we should use the new filament Innovatefil PET CF.

Is a filament for 3D printing PET-based that incorporates carbon fiber. Thanks to this, we maintain the great qualities of PET and increase its mechanical and thermal properties. Stability and the ease of printing makes this material fantastic to print working pieces with great finish.

The first thing to keep in mind is that a hardened 0.6 mm steel nozzle is recommended as it contains carbon fiber and is abrasive.

It is also interesting to be careful in opening the vacuum bag, since it is advisable to keep it after use in it.

After printing, we must bear in mind that the use of Smartfil CLEAN is recommended to clean the hotend and leave it ready for use with another filament.

  1. Hola, me gustaría saber qué parámetros hay que utilizar para el filamento de fibra- de carbono carbono, esto es, temperatura hotend, temperatura de la cam, velocidad impresión. Me compre una bobina y no consigo que funcione. ¿Se podrían descargar los parámetros para el cura? Me interesaría ponerlos para poder imprimir, ya que he oído un montón de ventajas de la fibra de carbono para 3D, pero no consigo que me salga el filamento bien por el extrusor. Gracias
