Default Matterhackers - NylonX

I was curious if anyone here has tried this filament: NylonX? It's a nylon filament mixed with chopped carbon fiber.

Seems like they have some really high hopes: "The high precision of this filament makes it a potential replacement for aluminum using 3D printing instead of CNC milling. "

Default NylonX

I just ordered it and will be trying it on my Rostock Maxv2. I am excited about it as I have a shapeoko CNC machine as well but cutting carbon fiber even submerged in water scares me. The potential for CF dust still making its way into the surrounding air & lungs is not worth the risk. This filament might be the perfect trade off. As soon as I get it and print will post picture and provide feedback.

Printing on a rostock max v2 as well.

Just got the new HE280 autoprobing hot end and ss nozzle for this.

Really interested to see what settings work best for you. What nozzle size do you plan on printing with?

My spool of NylonX is here already, just need some time to fire up the printer.
