Carbon Fiber Ultem
CF Ultem is classified as an experimental material for advanced users.
While you are free to use any brand and type of material you wish on your AON3D machine, we can only provide support for AON3D-approved materials that we have tested and developed processes for in-house, all of which can be purchased from AON3D directly by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
General Process Settings
Build Surface Preparation
CF Ultem prints best on the High Temperature PEI build plate with the use of a raft. Note that surface of the PEI plate should be periodically resurfaced using a mill, or with an orbital palm sander if no milling services are available.
CF Ultem is extremely susceptible to moisture uptake. We recommend drying the filament overnight at 100ºC before use, and to always store in a sealed container with dessicant. Take care to check the spool material of your filament prior to baking your material. Some vendors use low temperature materials for spools which may melt or deform at bakeout temperature.
Please contact email@example.com for any questions on this matter.
Breakaway Ultem support material is available.
