Formlabs® 11 CF | Carbon-Fiber


Nylon 11 CF | Carbon-Fiber

Get the Best of Nylon & Carbon Fiber All in One High-performance Material

Choose Nylon 11 CF Powder to produce lightweight, rigid parts that remain structurally and thermally stable and can sustain repeated impact. Get the best of nylon and carbon fiber all in one high-performance material, perfect for end-use applications that require both superior stiffness and strength. This material requires Sift 300 Sieve to be used with Fuse Sift.

Nylon 11 CF | The Balance Between Stiffness & Ductility

Formlabs® Nylon 11 CF Powder offers balanced stiffness and ductility with the advantage of delivering superior ease of use and accessibility, for comparable performances to the carbon-fiber-filled SLS materials on the market. 3D-printed parts offer a high strength to weight ratio, enabling the use of less material than parts made from Nylon 11 Powder for similar strength, and in some cases unlocking the ability to replace parts that are traditionally made from metal.

Reinforce production with Nylon 11 CF

Nylon 11 CF powder is a carbon-fiber reinforced material, ideal to produce stiff, strong, and lightweight end-use parts.

  • Carbon Fiber-Filled for high-performance composite parts for demanding applications
  • Strong yet lightweight parts due to a high strength-to-weight ratio on top of the geometric freedom of design in 3D printing
  • With Nylon 11 CF, you have the best mix of Nylon’s ductility and the rigidity of carbon fibers
  • Heat-resistant 3D-printed parts with Nylon 11 CF will not loose their dimensional accuracy over time and are resistant to repeated impact.

Types of Applications

Nylon 11 CF Powder is Formlab’s highest performance material for the Fuse 1+ 30W SLS 3D printer. You can make the choice to 3D print with this material for parts that need to be strong, lightweight and stable over time, even at elevated temperatures.

  • Replacement and spare alternatives to metal parts
  • High-impact equipment
  • Tooling, jigs, fixtures
  • Functional composite prototypes

3D-Printing with Nylon 11 CF on the Fuse 1+ 30W requires a 300-micron sieve for the Fuse Sift.
