Royal DSM, a global science-based company in Nutrition, Health and Sustainable Living has announced its new carbon fiber filled grade PA6/66 filament Novamid® ID1030 CF10 for 3D printing.

Filled with only 10% of actual carbon fiber – much lower than most carbon filled materials – Novamid ID1030 CF10 3D is designed for printing structural parts which are clearly stronger, stiffer and tougher with higher tensile strength and modulus, high dimensional stability and free of warpage.

These excellent mechanical properties and smooth appearance make it ideal for a very broad range of applications that require robust performance possibly at elevated temperatures such as automotive under-the-hood, protective and supporting sports gear; manufacturing jigs and fixtures; medical braces and prosthetics. It’s also a go-to-material for light weight applications across various vertical markets.

The material can be printed on standard desktop fused filament fabrication (FFF) machines with a hardened nozzle.

Novamid ID 1030 CF10 has been tested on several open FFF platforms, including on GermanRepRap and the new Ultimaker S5.
