Carbon fiber reinforced nylon optimized for high strength to weight ratio, stiffness, and heat resistance making it ideal for structural applications and metal replacements.
A formidable tensile strength of 110 Mpa makes MakerBot Nylon Carbon Fiber ideal for lightweighting metal parts such as robotic end effectors. For applications that require parts hold their form with minimal flex - such as automotive brackets or inspection gauges, Nylon Carbon Fiber offers an impressive 7600 Mpa tensile modulus. When exposed to heat other materials can deform under pressure. Nylon Carbon Fiber offers high heat deflection of 184°C making it great for higher temp under-hood and tooling applications.
Makerbot METHOD Nylon Carbon Fiber is compatible with the MakerBot METHOD and METHOD X 3D Printer using the Model 1C extruder.
Storage & Drying
When the material is not stored in the material bay, store MakerBot Method Nylon Carbon Fiber material in the included vacuum-sealed metalized polyester bag. This helps avoid moisture absorption from air and long-term exposure to humidity which can compromise material quality and performance. Make sure the built-in desiccant is in the spool to absorb any moisture exposure during the material loading process.
If you notice that the surface quality of your supports is uneven or the color is not consistent, this is a likely indicator that the filament has absorbed too much moisture. Spools of Makerbot Method Nylon Carbon Fiber can be dried inside the Makerbot Method 3D printer.
