About the CarbonX™ Carbon Fiber ABS 3D Printing Filament
Manufactured by 3DXTech in the USA, CarbonX™ CFR-ABS is a high-performance carbon fiber reinforced ABS filament ideal for anyone that desires a structrual component with high modulus, excellent surface quality, dimensional stability, light weight, and ease of printing. Made using 15% High-Modulus Carbon Fiber (not carbon powder or milled carbon fiber). Made in the USA using premium Sabic MG-94 ABS and high modulus carbon fiber.
CarbonX™ CFR ABS is suitable for use in practically any desktop 3D Printer that has a heated bed. Please note - carbon fiber reinforced filaments are abrasive and can wear out a brass or aluminum nozzle. We recommend our Hercules Hardened A2 Steel Nozzles

Recommended Print Conditions:
- Extruder: 220-240°C. 3DXMAX™ CFR is a filled product and has a higher melt viscosity vs. unfilled resin. Therefore, it is sometimes necessary to print at higher temperatures to allow the resin to flow properly.
- Nozzle: 0.4mm orifice minimum, recommend our Hercules Hardened A2 Steel Nozzles
- Bed Temp: 100-110°C
- Bed Prep: Kapton Tape, ABS/Acetone Slurry
