Formfutura-logoThere are so many unique and challenging 3D printed projects for the aspiring designer or engineer to embark on today–and a wide range of inviting materials and affordable new 3D printers to choose from as well. Luckily, this is an industry driven by other makers who actually use their products and generally have a sincere commitment to seeing their users thrive at the 3D printer, using quality filaments and materials and producing high-quality 3D printed objects.

While PLA and ABS still rule across the board for fabricating 3D models in plastic, they often do not possess the durability required for certain projects. This is why 3D printing with carbon is rapidly climbing the rungs in popularity, offering the strength and superpower of metal and that equated with traditionally made parts.

CarbonFil - FormfuturaFormfutura has just released a new material that allows users to take a stronger, clearer path toward bringing digital concepts into physical form. With their latest 3D printing material, CarbonFil, you are able to embrace not just pure strength, but also a lightweight filament that’s constructed by FormFutura with a blend of their HDglass compound, further enhanced with 20% ultra-light, long carbon strings.

Everyone who is looking to bring added strength to their 3D printing should enjoy the incredibly stiff attributes of this new product.

“CarbonFil is, for instance, twice as stiff as our HDglass compound and yet we still managed to increase its impact strength at more than ten percent,” Arnold Medenblik of Formfutura told 3DPrint.com. “This is very remarkable as usually an upturn in a material’s stiffness will have a downturn on its impact strength.”

“We also managed to increase CarbonFil’s heat deflection temperature by 21 percent to 85 degrees Celsius, and established very impressive dimensional stability properties.”

CarbonFil Banner12Offering you the chance to 3D print without warping, there is no need to worry if you don’t have a heated print bed. Breakage and failure due to impact is no longer an issue either. Many users look toward carbon-based filaments for reliability in printing high-quality parts that are as strong as metal for automotive parts, tools, and other 3D printed objects that you plan to actually use. This new material also functions well under pressure for fabricating new designs in a wide range of areas, from making bicycles to robots, as well as experimenting with electronics within 3D prints.

globalfsdlogocompleteCarbonFil has the look and feel of carbon as well as being extremely easy to use with superior first interlayer adhesion and excellent dimensional stability. Available in 2.85 mm and 1.75 mm, black only, you can find CarbonFil at Formfutura, as well as on GlobalFSD, a sample depot which offers a great venue for trying new materials.

Headquartered in the Netherlands, Formfutura is known as a materials manufacturer dedicated to bringing their users new materials on a constant basis. As a company founded by makers, they themselves know how exciting it is to find something new to try out at the 3D printer, and especially when it offers the chance for eliminating failed 3D print due to lack of strength. Helping to keep their customers inspired and challenged, Formfutura generally leaves us with one question as they roll out one quality product after another, and that’s simply, what’s next?
