Bambu Lab PLA-CF 


Bambu PLA-CF is a carbon fiber reinforced PLA filament that offers enhanced stiffness and strength compared to regular PLA. Despite its improved performance, PLA-CF remains easy to print, making it suitable for beginners as well. It is fully compatible with the AMS (Automatic Material System), reducing the risk of clogging during high-speed printing.

Prints made with Bambu PLA-CF exhibit a matte finish and feature nearly invisible layer lines. This makes it an excellent choice for a wide range of applications, including the printing of general engineering parts or models that require a superior aesthetic appearance. From bike frames and brackets to toys, Bambu PLA-CF delivers both functionality and visual appeal.


Minimal Layer Lines and Carbon Fibre Texture

By incorporating carbon fiber, Bambu PLA-CF offers prints with a distinctive matte finish that effectively conceals layer lines. This unique characteristic provides a smooth and premium appearance to your 3D printed objects.

Smart Printing with RFID

With Bambu PLA-CF, all the essential printing parameters are conveniently embedded in an RFID chip. This RFID chip can be read by our AMS (Automatic Material System), eliminating the need for manual configuration and tedious setup steps.

Simply load the filament onto the printer, and the AMS will automatically detect the material and retrieve the corresponding printing parameters from the RFID chip. This streamlined process saves you time and effort, allowing you to start printing right away without the hassle of adjusting settings.

Say goodbye to manual parameter input and enjoy a more seamless and efficient printing experience with Bambu PLA-CF and our integrated AMS technology.
