Should I 3D Print in Carbon Fiber or Metal?


Pro Segment Director
Shawn Miely

No two 3D printing materials create quite the same level of interest as steel and carbon fiber composite. While metal is a material that more people are familiar with using, carbon fiber composites are becoming more common and accessible. Now that both are available for users of MakerBot METHOD 3D printers the question is - should I print in Carbon Fiber or Metal?

Join us as we discuss the pros and cons of each material, how they work with the MakerBot METHOD platform, and which applications make sense for each.

Primary Topics Covered:

  • Intro
  • Comparing the printing process: Nylon 12 Carbon Fiber vs. Ultrafuse 316L Stainless Steel
  • Comparing material performance: Nylon 12 Carbon Fiber vs. Ultrafuse 316L Stainless Steel
  • Real-World Applications
  • Are there other materials that are better?
  • Q&A
