A few weeks ago we printed a Rhombic Dodecahedron Derived Figure with nGen Light Blue. You can find the original post here. We use this model, made by Fred Bartels, a lot lately to test our filaments with. The print we want to share today is the same dodecahedron, but printed with XT-CF20.

We introducted XT-CF20 early 2015, containing 20% carbon fibres with colorFabb_XT.
Due to the abrasive nature of XT-CF20 we always used hardened steel nozzles to print this filament. In recent weeks, however, we have been extensively testing with the Olsson Ruby nozzle, provided to us by 3DVerkstan, our distributor in the Nordic region and producer of these new nozzles. You can find the Death Gun mask here and Robot Action figure here for examples printed with this new nozzle that will be released in November.
As you can see we have had fantastic results with this new nozzle.
We printed the dodecahedron on an Ultimaker 2 at 0.1mm layer height.
XT-CF20 is available now in our webshop.
