Stratasys Ltd. introduced a new ABS-based carbon fiber material for its award-winning line of F123 Series™ 3D printers, the first composite material for the platform. With FDM® ABS-CF10, Stratasys now makes carbon fiber much more accessible to the engineering and manufacturing community with high-performance F170™, F270™, and F370™ 3D printers. The material properties of FDM ABS-CF10, featuring 10% chopped carbon fiber, make it a compelling alternative to metal parts.
In fact, the material is 15% stronger and more than 50% stiffer than standard ABS, without the weight of metal, and can be printed with a high degree of accuracy. QSR Support™ water-soluble material makes it possible to 3D print intricate and complex parts without time-consuming manual support removal.
