Novamid® ID 1030-CF10 Carbon Fiber Nylon - 1.75mm 500g | DSM
Novamid® ID1030 CF10 PA6/66 - 1.75mm, 500g
3D print high-performance and durable structural end-use parts with Novamid ID 1030CF.
With a carbon fiber loading of just 10%, Novamid® ID1030 CF10 prints parts with properties close to what is usually achievable only by injection molding.
Novamid® ID1030 CF10 is a new carbon fiber filled polyamide 6/66 that prints durable structural parts with high dimensional stability, warp-free.
The PA6/66 copolymer filament incorporates actual carbon fibers, rather than the commonly used powder-like carbon, which results in stronger, stiffer and tougher parts with higher tensile strength and modulus. With its excellent mechanical properties and smooth appearance, it is well-suited for 3D-printing demanding automotive structural applications that require robust performance at elevated temperatures.
Designed for 3D printing, it is ideal for producing functional parts and functional prototypes using fused filament fabrication (FFF) technology. The material can be printed on standard desktop FFF machines with a hardened nozzle. Tests have shown that users can run their printers at the same speeds as with unreinforced plastics, while achieving considerably better strength and toughness.

Novamid ID 1030-CF-10 Print Settings
These settings are recommended by Formfutura and are meant as a starting point to help find your optimal print settings. They should work for most 3D printers; however, you may need to experiment outside these ranges. If you find settings that work better with your printer, feel free to let us know and we will be happy to post them.
Enclosed Printer Needed
Nozzle Size: ≥ 0.5mm
Layer Height: ≥ 0.1mm *First layer : 100 - 150% of first layer thickness.
Flow Rate: ± 100%
Print Temp: ± 260 - 285°C *Novamid® can be used with a range of nozzle temperature (220–245 °C / 428–473°F). Preferred temperature to print your object is 230°C / 446°F. To generate a homogeneous melt, the melt temperature should always be above 225°C / 437°F. Optimal mechanical properties will be achieved at melt temperature between (225-245 °C / 437°F–473°F).
Print Speed: Medium / High *Print speed: 50 - 100 mm/s (obeying the maximal throughput in cm3/s of the extruder). Print speed for "normal" nozzle size (0.4mm) and layer height (0.2mm), for other values print speed should be adjusted accordingly!
Retraction: Depends on printer type and filament diameter
Bed Temp: ± 60 - 120°C *Only remove printed object from print bed when print bed has cooled down to ambient temperatures, as otherwise printed part can deform severely.
Fan Speed: 0%
Surface: PEI Sheet + DimaFix
Heated Build Chamber: Preferred / Yes
Storage and Conditioning Process
In order to prevent moisture pick up and contamination, packaging should be kept closed and undamaged. For the same reason, partially used bags should be sealed before restorage.
Allow the material that has been stored elsewhere to adapt to the temperature in the processing room while keeping the bag closed. To prevent moisture condensing on filaments, bring cold filaments up to ambient temperature in the print shop while keeping the packaging closed.
In case the filament becomes wet, it should be dried. Using a hot air oven at 80°C for at least 4hr is recommended.
When storing the filament after printing, it is advised to seal the bag and add silica gel to the bag to keep the filament as dry as possible.
