Markforged Fiberglass CFF Spool 50cm3 3D filament
The Markforged 50cm3 Fiberglass CFF Spool is a high quality specialist 3D printing material for use with the Markforged range of 3D printers, at an affordable cost. Fibreglass filament provides a strength similar to Carbon Fibre, but with a lower stiffness (approx. 40% as stiff) and is only 2x the weight, as well as being electrically insulating. However, when compared to other materials which are available to reinforce composite materials such as Onyx, the flexural strength of fiberglass shows it to be leagues above the alternatives. Whilst PLA and ABS have the flexural strength equivalent to 75 MPa, Fiberglass can bend under forces without breaking until 215 MPa. Fibreglass is used with the CFF (Composite Filament Fabrication) nozzle to add reinforcing fibres to the Nylon or Onyx printed part. The Fiberglass CFF Spool is the perfect solution when printing parts that are required to be stiff yet still affordable. Examples of use cases include: functional prototypes, jigs, fixtures and end use parts. The Markforged Fiberglass CFF Spool is compatible with Mark One, Mark One Professional, Mark Two, Mark Two Professional, Mark Two Enterprise, Onyx Pro, Markforged X5 and Markforged X7 (formerly known as Mark X) models.
Markforged Fiberglass CFF Spool 150cm3 3D filament
Fiberglass gives you 5 times the strength of Onyx parts alone Strength like Carbon Fibre Use for a wide variety of strong, robust parts To print parts that are required to be stiff yet still affordable For Use on Onyx Pro, Mark Two, X5 and X7 Systems only. Not compatible with Onyx One or X3. 150cm3 Continuous Fiberglass Filament
Markforged High Temp Fiberglass CFF Spool 50cm3 3D filament
The 50cm3 Markforged High Temp Fiberglass CFF spool provides material with the highest impact resistance and highest heat deflection temperature of all of Markforged continuous fibres. Compared to alternative materials, the High Temp Fiberglass CFF spool shows a heat deflection temperature of 150° C, compared to 97° C in parts printed from ABS and 52° C in parts printed from PLA. For Use on Markforged Mark Two and X7 Systems Only. Not compatible with Onyx One, Onyx Pro, X3 or X5 Systems 50cm3 Continuous High Temperature Fiberglass Filament
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.
