Markforged Onyx Filament Spool 800cm3 3D filament
Onyx is Nylon mixed with chopped carbon fiber offers a high-strength thermoplastic with excellent heat resistance, surface finish, and chemical resistance. Onyx serves as a thermoplastic matrix for Markforged’s composite parts. It can be printed alone or reinforced with one of our continuous fibers to give strength comparable to aluminum. Use Onyx for anything from tooling and fixtures to end-use parts. How strong is Onyx? Onyx has a flexural strength of 71 MPa (10.3 ksi). For more information on Onyx material properties, check out the data sheet. What is the difference between chopped carbon fiber and continuous carbon fiber? Chopped carbon fiber is what is mixed into Onyx filament giving it high stiffness and strength. Continuous carbon fiber is a reinforcement fiber that can be printed in long strands, creating composite parts many times stronger and stiffer than Onyx.
Markforged Carbon Fiber CFF Spool 150cm3 3D filament
The backbone of aluminum-strength composite parts as strong as 6061-T6 Aluminum extremely stiff and strong high performance, superior and lightweight material For use on Mark Two and X7 printers only Not compatible with Onyx One, Onyx Pro, X3 or X5 printers
Markforged Carbon Fiber CFFTM Filament Spool 50 cm3 3D filament
Carbon Fiber CFF™ (Continuous Filament Fabrication) Spools. Carbon fiber is high performance, superior and lightweight. It has the highest strength to weight ratio for 10 times the strength of Onyx. Carbon fiber reinforcement is perfect for applications requiring the greatest possible stiffness and strength but as light a feather. We also recommend you purchase an additional Nylon spool for every CFF spool. What is carbon fiber? 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. How strong is carbon fiber? Carbon fiber has a flexural strength of 540 MPa (78.3 ksi) which is 20% higher than the yield strength of 6061 aluminum. Its tensile strength is 800 MPa (116 ksi), more than twice the ultimate tensile strength of aluminum.
5 Ways to Store 3D Printer Filament 3D printer filament materials such as PLA, ABS, TPU and PETG require special storage equipment as they are fairly delicate materials. They're easily destroyed by natural elements such as excess or lack of humidity, dust and atmospheric aerosol particles.
