Printing with ProtoPasta Carbon Fiber PLA is very similar to printing in standard PLA - it does not require a heated bed. Carbon Fiber Reinforced PLA is moisture sensitive, so stored it with dessicant. The filament is quite brittle, so it should be handled with care when feeding/loading through your printer.

This filament is perfect for printing items that do not bend, such as: frames, supports, propellers, and tools (drone builders and RC Hobbyists love this stuff).

Due to all the different types of hot-end it's extremely difficult to give a temperature advice. Please consider these tips, provided by the manufacturer, as a starting point to find the temperatures that work well in your setup. You may have to adjust the temperature settings slightly based on your type of printer.
