UltiMaker


Ultimaker PETCF Blue is a PET based material blended with carbon fibres, for use on the Ultimaker S-series 3D printers (S7, S5 and S3).

With the blended carbon fibres, the PET material has good stiffness (3x stiffer than standard UltiMaker PETG), making it ideal for design, test, and iteration of functional parts and prototypes.

The material has a temperature resistance of up to 79°C, and can be used with Ultimaker PVA and Breakaway support materials.

Ultimaker PET CF filament is 2.85mm in diameter. 750g per spool.

Use with UltiMaker Print Core CC.

See compatible UltiMaker 3D printers and materials below.

Colour: Blue. Also available in Grey or Black variations

Please note: It is possible to anneal your PETCF part which can result in a temperature resistance of 181°C, a 30% increase in strength and a 10% increase in stiffness. Please discuss this with the CREAT3D Team


Ultimaker recommended material v 3D printer compatibility matrix. 

Not all materials are compatible with the full range of Ultimaker 3D printers. In the below table are Ultimaker's recommended pairings and whether a material is officially supported, experimental or not recommended.

CREAT3D's Advice: contact us to discuss your material and print requirements in advance. Some materials require advanced settings by experienced users.

Diameter(s)

2.85mm

Printer compatibility All UltiMaker S series printers
Print core CC 0.4 and CC 0.6
Support materials UltiMaker PVA and Breakaway
Adhesion

For larger parts, recommend using adhesive: 3DLac on S7 and UHU on S3/S5

Drying

 

70°C for 4–16 hours dependent on moisture level

Annealing

 

Use annealing intent profile in Cura. Programmable industrial-grade convection oven with well-controlled heating and cooling ramps recommended

Additional printing & storage tips

In a resealable bag with desiccant between 0 and 30°C and out of sunlight (or in Material Station)

Recommended settings

• Wall thickness min. 2 mm, preferred 4 mm or more

• Avoid strong external air circulation (ventilation, air conditioning)

• Set “Fan Speed” and “Maximum Fan Speed” to 0% or 5% (note: reduces dimensional accuracy).

• If printing multiple models single extrusion: set Cura setting “Print Sequence” to “One at a time”

• Tip: avoid issues by orienting the model such that the highest mechanical forces are applied to the XY plane

NB: Properties and settings may vary depending on printer type and setting.
