Ready to use carbon fiber
for Stratasys F123 Series

Unlock the potential of carbon fiber-reinforced thermoplastic with ABS-CF10 that delivers stronger, stiffer, and lighter-weight parts.

Combining standard ABS material with 10% chopped carbon fiber by weight, ABS-CF10 lets you replace metal components in functional prototypes, tooling applications, and production parts that don’t flex under load.

Compatible for use with F170, F270, and F370 Stratasys 3D Printers.

Robot Grabber | End Effector

50% Lighter

This ABS-CF10 alignment fixture weighs only half of its aluminium counterpart, translating into better ergonomics for workers while also meaning less power is needed to move robotic end effectors.

ABS-CF10 is a low-moisture FDM thermoplastic that is 15% stronger and over 50% stiffer than traditional ABS.

ABS-CF10

In comparison to other materials on F123

Highest stiffness and high tensile strength on F123 Series.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

JIGS AND FIXTURES

Drill guides, end effectors, locating tools.

TOOLING

Production and assembly, health and safety, bridge tooling.

RELIABLE

In a head-to-head study*, F123 printers achieved 100% reliability, beating the closest competitor by 21%.

FAQ


Can ABS-CF10 be used with F120 3D printer?
No. It’s only compatible with the F123 Series – F370, F270, F170.

What support material is used with ABS-CF10?
QSR soluble support.

Can I use a standard build tray like I use for ABS?
Yes.

Can I use the CF head with other materials?
The ABS-CF10 head is dedicated for ABS-CF10 ONLY. The standard head can be used for all other materials.  You will need to swap heads when they run different materials.

What is the difference between Nylon 12CF and ABS-CF10?
Nylon 12CF offers superior mechanical properties and chemical resistance, due to its material properties. And it is only available for the Fortus 380mc, Fortus 450mc, and F900 printers.

Does print quality differ with ABS-CF10 compared with ABS?
Depending on the part printed, there can be differences due to the carbon fiber content in ABS-CF10.

What are the ESD properties?
ABS-CF10 does not have ESD properties, although volume resistance is better than ABS. You can check out ABS-ESD7 instead.

How is the surface quality of ABS-CF10 compared to the current ABS-M30?
It depends on the geometry. It can be very nice in Z, but very rough in XY due to the carbon fibers in the resin. This is a material for functional testing and use, not necessarily for aesthetics.
