With the goal of making Carbon Fiber 3D Printing simple, the manufacturer has worked with 16 material producers as part of its Open Filament Program. There are BASF Forward AM, Covestro, eSUN, Extrudr, FiberThree, Grupa Azoty, Handtmann, Jabil, Kexcelled, Kimya, LEHVOSS, NHH, Polymaker, RadiciGroup High Performance Polymers, Spectrum Filaments, TreeD.
The new filaments have in common a high strength-to-weight ratio and consistent high performance during long-term operations, which makes them particularly suitable for industries like automotive, aerospace and healthcare, and applications such as jigs and fixtures, engineering tooling and numerous industrial end-use parts.
“The Open Filament Program (OFP 1.0 & 2.0) is a long-term collaboration between Raise3D and filament manufacturers to identify top-performing filaments and to provide a large variety of proven materials validated by Raise3D for our customers. With the OFP 2.0,
we strive to cooperate with the best filament manufacturers worldwide to ensure compatibility as well as excellent mechanical properties and printed parts performance. We focus on the properties and performance of the final printed parts. Raise3D engineers optimize all OFP 2.0 filaments printing templates with guidelines, not only based on part performance validation, but also the experience and input from our end-use application cases, to bridge the gap between materials and applications” Minde Jin (Phd), Director of materials & applications at Raise3D comments.
The E2CF was announced in August 2021 and has been available since January 2022. The E2CF is also Raise3D’s entry-level 3D printer for fiber-reinforced filaments, where the RMF500, of the industrial line, stands as the flagship. The E2CF is available for sale at 3,999 EUR in Europe and 4,499 USD in the rest of the world from authorized resellers.
