    I've got a few parts to 3d print which require high-strength and dimensional stability over a wide range of temperatures. ABS isn't quite strong enough (and is unpleasant to work with) and PETG isn't rigid enough.

    I was wondering if anyone here has worked with carbon fibre based filaments before? I know they aren't going to be anywhere near as good as true CF woven materials, but I would imagine that the filament should be good for parts that undergo a lot of stress.

    If you have used it before, have you got any tips for working with it? I'm going to pick up some hardened steel nozzles at the same time to reduce wear on my 0.4mm brass nozzles.

    No. I would imagine you could run a loooow current through it if you can get the printer to plasticize it, though o_O
