The Original Carbon Fiber Composite PLA

Carbon Fiber PLA Filament

$5.00 USD
CFP11705

The original is still the best! World's First Carbon Fiber PLA filament was kickstarted by ProtoPlant nearly 5 years ago. Others try, but can't match the quality and ease of printing experience afforded by this product. Available at a cost low enough for everyday printing, try a mammoth 3kg spool for large format printing! 1.75mm diameter 3kg spools contain more than 1 km of filament!  How cool is that?!?!

We Started a Trend with the Original Easy Printing Exotic!

Protopasta Carbon Fiber PLA is based on our easy printing, high quality PLA. Made from the highest quality, dry ingredients and extruded with care in our Washington facility on our own purpose-built extrusion systems. CFPLA prints are demonstrably more rigid with easy processing (often using standard PLA settings) and support removal.  Excellent layer adhesion and minimal warpage even without a heated bed make this a great everyday exotic for accurate parts. Layer lines disappear with the beautiful matte black finish.  Also has a slight sheen due to the embedded carbon making it very photogenic!

**This filament is slightly more abrasive than standard PLA. Be prepared to replace your nozzle and do 1st layer adjustment after prolonged use or upgrade to a wear resistant nozzle for less maintenance.

  • Available in 1.75 & 2.85 (3) mm diameters.
  • 500g is on a 8" diameter spool & 3kg is on a 12" diameter spool.
  • Usable on most PLA-compatible printers, such as Lulzbot, Makerbot, FlashForge, Dremel, Ultimaker, Printrbot, and more!

In filament form, CFPLA is slightly more brittle than standard PLA, and requires extra care when handling. 

Processing is comparable to standard PLA. No heated bed required. Process may be less consistent on smaller nozzles and/or bowden type machines, 

We frequently print using direct-drive systems with 0.4mm nozzles and print as high as 240C, though suggest 0.6mm and 210-230C for the best experience.

First print with carbon fiber composite

Printed a large track pad holder with the carbon fiber composite. Really impressed with the print quality. The walls are incredibly smooth and the print feels strong. Just got started with proto pasta recently and it’s the best filament I’ve used. Look forward to more prints!

Superb dimensional accuracy

I'm able to print threads from standard profiles in fusion with no scaling or offsetting faces or any of the stuff I would normally have to do to get functional threads. Amazing!

High Quality, High Review

Awesome! As long as you have the right nozzle, this stuff prints out fantastically. This goes for the metal composite filaments too, very good quality.

Seems to print within specs

Seems to print within specs much stiffer than straight PLA
