 Product Description

CarbonX™ CFR Carbon Fiber Reinforced ABS Filament

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 A2 Hardened Steel Nozzles - HERE 

New Data:  We updated the mechanical and thermal data on our carbon fiber grades.  You can see the new data HERE on our blog

*Please note:  2kg, 4kg, and 10kg reels are special order and may take up to 1 week to ship.  2kg and 4kg reel dimensions are 11.75" diameter, 4" wide, 2" arbor.  10kg reel dimensions are 16" diameter, 5.5" wide, 1.5" arbor.  


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.  
  • Bed Temp:  100-110°C
  • Bed Prep:  3DXTech Kapton Tape, ABS/Acetone Slurry
  • Nozzle: We currently recommend minimum 0.4mm orifice.

  1. Beautiful and strong prints

    Posted by Don on 1st Jan 2017

    I used this and CF PETG to print my rc planes and I have to say that I love the CF ABS. I find it very easy to print, sticks very well to the glass bed with no additional adhesives, sands wonderfully and looks awesome once finished. I have used it for the frame work and for the skins of the planes, along with multirotor parts such as landing gear. I would be happy to put up some pictures of the items, but not sure how to go about that.

  2. Be Careful; Very Brittle

    Posted by Nate on 29th Aug 2016

    This stuff worked great in my Afinia printer. The parts are very strong, and the machine required no tweaking to make it work; I just used the standard ABS settings.
    One caveat, it is not like ABS, more like PLA in its brittleness. I broke several small pieces of the reel trying to thread it into the machine.

  3. Strong but somewhat brittle

    Posted by Mitch on 28th Aug 2016

    As others have mentioned, this is a bit trickier to print than standard ABS, but not much. It prints fantastically and the resulting prints are quite strong. The finish quality is a bit different than ABS, but I wouldn't call the finish worse. The only drawback is you lose a bit of the flexibility of standard ABS. But, depending on your application the Carbon ABS is a great choice.

  4. Almost no warpage, much stiffer, but a little tougher to print.

    Posted by Todd Knighton on 18th Jul 2016

    Taz 5, 0.5mm nozzle.
    230c / 110c bed seem to be the best settings I've found.
    at 240c, the layer adhesion is best, but there's a lot of blobbing on the print head and the prints are pretty sloppy.
    At 220c, the prints are very nice, but the layer adhesion isn't so good. I'm finding they're separating between layers.
    At 230c, minor blobbing, pretty clean prints, good layer adhesion.

    Cosmetically not as nice as pure ABS. The prints are a bit grainy. But very rigid. So if you're after strength, this is a nice update to ABS.

    We're using this vs. the NylonCF in some larger parts since you can still glue these together easily with ABS glue, vs. Nylon is very tough to glue.

  5. Excellent filament!

    Posted by Jon on 5th May 2016

    The day I used this filament is the day my 3d printer went from a toy to a working tool. Prints great, nice and strong and finishes very well.

  6. Excellent Product

    Posted by Bob on 25th Feb 2016

    I have used this on both the Maker gear M2 and the Rostock Max.
    I have yet to have a failed print. I'm running at 245C using a 5mm nozzle. I have not experienced any warping and negligible shrinkage even on large prints. Bonding is excellent no layer separation.

  7. Better than ABS, and easier than ABS

    Posted by Toshio Fuji on 25th Jan 2016

    This was my first try of CF filament, but it was even easier to print things than ABS because of no warping.
    Also surface appearlance is very beautiful so it need not sanding or painting like cheap ABS.

    Of course there are some disadvantages of CF filament like "expensive" "black only", "shorten nozzle life". However I think it is more happy to pay more money on CF filament than pay less money on cheap ABS. I will print all things which do not need coloring in future, and make nozzle by my hands (My printer DaVinci 1.0 does not have nozzle for replacement).

    I used this filament with 240C printhead, 80C bed and special glue "ShiwanashiPIT".

  8. The Best Carbon Fiber Filament on the Market

    Posted by Matthew Skaletski on 30th Apr 2015

    I have tried many carbon fiber filled filaments over the years, and this is the best out there. I print a lot of different things and this is my go to filament when I need a high strength, lightweight ABS part. A recent test I did with some Drone parts revealed I printed showed a 60gram weight savings over regular ABS, and stiffness 2x over regular ABS. This is ideal for copter/drone parts or anything that requires a higher strength, lighter weight part.
