Finer than frog hair split four ways
I seldom write reviews (good or bad). Atomic Carbon Fiber Nuclear Nylon v3 filament deserves a review. I have been running 3DP for 15 years but I had not tried CF or nylon filament. Reading all of horror stories about warping, poor bed adhesion, soaking up moisture, etc kept me from giving it a try. I bought a roll because I needed a bunch of really strong parts. I figured the expense would be worth it if I could get it print correctly. The instructions say to put glue stick on the build plate. I thought it might work without it. I was wrong. Glue stick is required. The first print lifted off the bed and failed. The next 8 prints - running one at a time, 12 hours each, turned out beautiful and incredibly strong. You would need to look very hard to see any layer lines (.20 layers, .4 nozzle). I have owned and run most of the 3D printers and filaments out there. It takes a lot to impress me. If you haven't tried CF nylon, then I would say give it a go. It is expensive - no two ways about that. But, it is top quality and made in the USA. I ordered 3 more rolls because I never want to be without a bunch of this filament on-hand.
it's on my todo list
The rumors are true
It really does print nearly as easily as other manufacturers PLA.
The filament is dramatic improvement in stiffness and strength. Supports breakaway clean. Prints sharp corners and shallow features well. Parts are simply beautiful. Can't believe they were printed.
Thanks Gary, appreciate you taking the time to share!
I still love this product, but the last 3 rolls have needed drying before using. Not a huge deal, just need to plan ahead for it.
Thanks for the grace Forrest. Very surprised about the drying issue. Let me know how it was packed please.
