PET CF Printing Applications

Functional Prototyping

Create functional prototypes with high-performance properties including impressive strength, stiffness, and temperature resistance. Use an engineering-grade material for your engineering prototypes.

Tooling and Fixtures

UltiMaker PET CF is the perfect material for your manufacturing needs. It provides the performance and versatility for a wide range of applications: such as jigs, fixtures, and end-of-arm tooling.

Replacement Parts and Auxiliary Components

UltiMaker PET CF is the perfect solution for replacing broken or hard-to-source parts. You no longer need to shut down a production line for days or weeks while waiting for a replacement. Instead, you can print a new part using PET CF, even when you need it to be strong or temperature-resistant.

What's in the box?

Everything you need to start printing high-performance parts on an UltiMaker S7 and S series printer.

Enjoy a seamless composite printing experience thanks to the complete integration of PET CF with UltiMaker S7 printers and S series printers: including NFC-equipped spools, the Print Core CC, and intent profiles in UltiMaker Cura.

The UltiMaker PET Carbon Fiber Expansion Kit includes:
  • 2x spools of PET CF Black
  • 1x spool of PET CF Gray
  • 1x spool of PET CF Blue
  • UltiMaker Print Core CC 0.4
  • UltiMaker Print Core CC 0.6
  • Free Ultimaker Cura software with optimized PET CF annealing slicing features
What's Included in the PET CF Expansion Kit

Excellent Mechanical Properties: With a flexural strength of ~100 MPa and a stiffness of ~6000 MPa, PET CF proivdes excellent mechanical properties, suitable for a wide range of applications.

Color Code Your Carbon Fiber: UltiMaker PET CF comes in three colors: black, gray and blue, all three which are included in this kit.

Low Moisture Sensitifity: Less moisture sensitive other than carbon fiber-based materials.

Enhanced Performance Through Annealing: Annealing your part results in a temperature resistance of 181°C, a 30% increase in strength, and a 10% increase in stiffness.

Compatible with UltiMaker Support Materials: Enjoy full design freedom when printing PET CF in combination with PVA or Breakaway support materials.

Perfectly tuned for UltiMaker S series printer: Complete integration of PET CF with S series printers: including NFC-equipped spools, intent profiles in UltiMaker Cura, and two sizes of CC Print Core, both of which are in this kit.

UltiMaker PET CF Expansion Kit specifications

Filament Diameter: 2.85mm
Colors: Black, Gray, Blue
Printer Compatibility: All S series printers
Print Core: CC 0.4 and CC 0.6
Support Materials PVA, Breakaway and Model Support
Software: UltiMaker Cura 5.4 and Up
Adhesion: Only for large prints, use 3DLAC PLus on S7. Use a thin layer of UHU on S3/S5.
Storage: In a resealable bag with desiccant between 0 and 30 °C and out of sunlight (or in Material Station)
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 (such as Binder FP115).
If n/a: anneal at 80-100 °C for 8-12 hours.
Optimize Z-strength:
  • Wall thickness min. 2mm, preferred 4mm 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 somewhat).
  • 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.
Health and Safety SDS available
Validated against UL2904
Air Manager recommended
