Material Overview

Carbon fiber using FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) combines the strength and lightweight properties of carbon fiber with the design freedom and cost-effectiveness of 3D printing. FDM allows for the creation of complex geometries and internal structures, optimizing part strength and weight distribution. This results in durable, high-performance parts that are ideal for applications requiring a good strength-to-weight ratio, such as aerospace, automotive, and sporting goods industries.


Forge Labs Carbon Fiber Nylon12 material is 3D printed on Stratasys FDM machines, which are known for their reliability, precision, and consistency, ensuring high-quality prints, with the industry's highest throughput and print speed.


Parts created using FDM are anisotropic as a result of the printing process and therefore mechanical properties as well as surface finish can vary depending on orientation. Unless otherwise requested, our technicians will select the most optimized print orientation for your design.
