AON3D Readyprint™ carbon fiber polyethylene terephthalate glycol (PETG) is a composite filament of PETG and chopped carbon fibers. The addition of carbon fiber in PETG offers a significant increase in strength and stiffness along with great printability and dimensional stability, making it an optimum choice for functional prototypes, manufacturing jigs, or end-use parts. PETG complies with RoHS and REACH standards.
Printing Difficulty: Easy/Beginner

For best results, process settings should be adjusted based on a particular model geometry. If you require process development support, our Applications Engineering team can help! Send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org to consult with one of our Additive Manufacturing Specialists.
|Setting||AON M2+ (CE)|
|Print Speed||20-80 mm/s|
|Nozzle Size||0.25-1.20 mm|
|Preferred Build Platform||Garolite G-10 build surface|
Readyprint™ PETG Carbon is factory pre-dried and should be installed in the Filament Dry Storage and Feed System prior to printing to prevent moisture uptake and minimize the impact of moisture on the printing process. In ambient air, PETG Carbon is mildly susceptible to hydration. It will generally remain printable, but surface finish and seam quality will suffer after prolonged exposure.
If the filament is hydrated, dry filament at 60ºC for 2-4 hours in a convection oven. Ensure drying equipment respects our site requirements to ensure adequate drying performance is achieved. Store filament in air-tight bags or containers alongside silica or zeolite desiccant. Be sure to replace desiccant regularly as its moisture capture ability is exhausted.
For more information, see the Filament Drying and Moisture Control page.
For instructions on how to inspect the AON3D build plates, refer to the Clean Build Platform and Build Chamber procedure for AON M2+ or the Inspect and Clean Build Plates procedure for AON-M2 and AON-M2 2020.
|Printer Model||Build Surface||Bed Temperature||Description|
|AON M2+||Garolite G-10||85ºC||PETG Carbon prints best on the Garolite G-10 build surface due to strong adhesion behavior while at recommended bed temperatures and clean removal once the build sheet is cooled down. The G-10 surface is sensitive to Z-axis calibration and scratches or scuffs on the surface. For the best results, use a lower first layer speed, a higher the first layer extrusion temperature, and remove the parts gently after prints are complete to minimize damage on the build surface.|
|AON M2+||CF-PEEK composite plate||85ºC||PETG Carbon prints well on the CF-PEEK composite plate as it exhibits great adhesion behavior with the highest durability compared to PEI and PC sheets. For best results, ensure that the machine has reached thermal equilibrium before calibrating. If the bed-to-nozzle distance is too small or too large, underextrusion, overextrusion and first layer adhesions issues may occur.|
This section contains the Simplify3D profile, factory and G-code files to complete a sample print for carbon fiber PETG. All settings are sliced for the standard 0.6mm nozzle with the preferred build platform.
Other build platforms may also be used, however modification of first layer settings may be required to achieve desired adhesion behavior. Refer to the Build Platform Adhesion guide to determine compatible build platorms.

Allow all machine components to reach room temperature before proceeding further. Failure to allow components to cool down will result in thermal injury (burns) to personnel.
