I am trying to print the new colorfabb CF-XT20 filament with carbon fibre. I just can't find the right settings. I found out the creatr HS max extruder temperature is 270°C.. (also meaning you cannot print Titan filament which needs higher temp.) so either I have to print much slower? or needs a bigger nozzle? It starts OK but after a few layers nothing sticks anymore and it does not extrude enough.
to me it seems the filament does not melt fast enough.
I have a similar problem with the PLA glow in the dark.. it stays soft and after about 10 layers it looks different. or with cooling nothing sticks.
OK I will try this. I found other problem with my machine I solved now maybe it will work better now. what nozzle size did you use? 0.35mm?
yes CF materials are extremely abrasive, I also destroyed a brass nozzle in 1 day ( the protopasta CF PLA). I had Stainless steel nozzles made now 0,5 and 0.36mm i will try them to see if they last longer.
If you ( or someone else) need some let me know, I have extra ones.
yes I still have some stainless steel nozzles, 0.35 and 0.5 mm
How nice! I would like to buy 2 of each, please give me an e-mail with information regarding price etc. email@example.com
