What is Carbon-Fibre?
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-Fibre?
Carbon fiber has a flexural strength of 540 MPa (78.3 ksi) which is more than 6 times greater than parts printed in only Onyx. It’s tensile strength is 800 MPa (116.0 ksi) more than twice the ultimate tensile strength of aluminum 6061. To learn more about carbon fiber material properties, check out the data sheet.
What does the carbon fibre filament cost?
A 50cc spool costs £120.00 excl. VAT and a 150cc spool is £360.00 excl. VAT.
