Composite Filament Fabrication (CFF)
- Minimum layer thickness .0040" (100 µm) unreinforced
- Typical layer thickness .0050" (125 µm) with continuous carbon fiber reinforcement
- Our composite base material is Onyx, a micro carbon fiber filled polyamide (nylon). It offers high strength, toughness and chemical resistance. It can be printed alone or with continuous fiber reinforcement.
- Continuous carbon fiber is extremely stiff and offers the highest strength to weight ratio (flexural strength 540 MPa). It is commonly used for parts that replace machined aluminum.
- Continuous Kevlar fiber possesses excellent durability, making it optimal for parts that experience repeated and sudden loading (flexural strength 240 MPa).
- Continuous fiberglass is an entry-level reinforcement material. It is capable of yielding parts 10x stronger than ABS and is more affordable than carbon fiber.
- Min. wall thickness (reinforced) .102" (2.6 mm)
- Min. post diameter (unreinforced):
- XY .063" (1.6 mm)
- Z .079" (2.0mm
- Min. hole diameter XY .059" (1.5 mm)
- Min. hole diameter Z: .039" (1 mm)
