Increased rigidity from the carbon fiber means increased structural support but decreased flexibility, making our Carbon Fiber PLA an ideal material for frames, supports, shells, propellers, tools… really anything not expected (or desired) to bend. It is particularly loved by drone builders and and RC hobbyists.
The carbon fibers in our filament are processed for an optimum size: short enough to print in PLA without clogging nozzles, but long enough to provide the added rigidity carbon fiber is famous for. At this length, the chopped carbon fiber makes this filament more abrasive than standard PLA. Prolonged use may result in more wear on your 3D printer, particularly lower-end nozzles. We strongly suggest using a hardened nozzle.
Kiwi3D filament is engineered for beginners right through to professionals. Our filament is manufactured to strict tolerances and the highest quality standards, ensuring smooth, precision printing on all 3D printers. So no matter what kind of 3D printing project you’re working on, Kiwi3D has the filament to get it done.
PLA, or Polylactic Acid, is a commonly used thermoplastic material that does not require the use of a heated print bed. Blending a mixture of plant-based materials and polymers creating Kiwi3D PLA filament, making this material more environment-friendly compared to ABS. Lower melting temperatures and lack of warping, PLA filament also retains its colour vibrancy and is a common choice for displays or household prints.
Filament is vacuum sealed with desiccant pack.
