Our stiffest, strongest fiber with the highest strength-to-weight ratio.
Carbon fiber is a thin filament made up of carbon atoms organized into a crystalline structure. Because of its very high stiffness and strength it is widely used in the aerospace and automotive industries.
Carbon fiber has a flexural strength of 470 MPa (68 ksi) which is 20% higher than the yield strength of 6061 aluminum. Its tensile strength is 700 MPa (102 ksi), more than twice the ultimate tensile strength of aluminum.
When To 3D Print With Carbon Fiber
Carbon fiber material is strong enough to replace aluminum at half the weight; use it when you want superior stiffness and minimal deflection.
