Novamid® ID1030 CF10 can 3D-print high-performance and durable structural end-use parts, making 3D printing technology a viable option for demanding automotive structural applications that require robust performance at elevated temperatures.
With a carbon fiber loading of just 10%, Novamid® ID1030 CF10 prints parts with properties close to what is usually achievable only by injection molding. It can be printed at the same speeds as unreinforced plastics, while achieving considerably better strength and toughness.
Novamid® ID1030 CF10 is a new carbon fiber filled polyamide 6/66 that prints durable structural parts with high dimensional stability, warpage free. The PA6/66 copolymer filament incorporates actual carbon fibers, rather than the commonly used powder-like carbon, which results in stronger, stiffer and tougher parts with higher tensile strength and modulus. With its excellent mechanical properties and smooth appearance, it is well-suited for 3D-printing demanding automotive structural applications that require robust performance at elevated temperatures.
Designed for 3D printing, it is ideal for producing functional parts and functional prototypes using fused filament fabrication (FFF) technology. The material can be printed on standard desktop FFF machines with a hardened nozzle. Tests have shown that users can run their printers at the same speeds as with unreinforced plastics, while achieving considerably better strength and toughness.

*) Above displayed settings are meant as guidance to find your optimal print settings. These ranges in settings should work for most printers, but please do feel free to experiment outside these ranges if you think it is suitable for your printer. There are a lot of different type of printers, hot-ends and printer offsets that it is extremely difficult to give an overall one-size-fits-all setting.
*) First layer : 100 - 150% of first layer thickness.
*) Novamid® can be used with a range of nozzle temperature (220–245 °C / 428–473°F). Preferred temperature to print your object is 230°C / 446°F. To generate a homogeneous melt, the melt temperature should always be above 225°C / 437°F. Optimal mechanical properties will be achieved at melt temperature between (225-245 °C / 437°F–473°F).
*) Print speed: 50 - 100 mm/s (obeying the maximal throughput in cm3/s of the extruder). Print speed for "normal" nozzle size (0.4mm) and layer height (0.2mm), for other values print speed should be adjusted accordingly!
*) Do only remove printed object from print bed when print bed has cooled down to ambient temperatures, as otherwise printed part can deform severely.
*) Retraction dependent on printer type and filament diameter.
