Hello, I’ve been lurking for awhile and have finally begun the process of building an MPCNC.
As per: https://www.v1engineering.com/specifications/ I began printing parts in a roll of leftover inland PLA that I had, but that roll has run out and it’s time to me to figure out what else to use.
I had ordered up a roll of “20% carbon fiber PLA” from amazon for around $22 and since I was already using a hardened nozzle I figured, why not try it out. Obviously at that pricepoint, and from a brand I had never heard about I was skeptical, but I printed up a C-RollerMount and the results seem pretty promising. It definitely feels different than other PLA I have printed with. The layer adhesion and overall strength and rigidity seem really great, and I love the matte/glossy look.
My question is, if this is the real deal and is indeed 20% carbon fiber, is it a good idea to use it for the MPCNC parts? What benefits or negatives can I expect over normal PLA?
