Carbon PLA vs PLA some tech info
Just a quick one.
For those who like technical info even thought sometimes might not mean much 🙂
I have nice little device that measures the hardness of the plastic.
So I got 3mm PLA and Carbon samples and tested hardness. I took 3mm dilament so it is not a printed part just to make sure that consistency is the same and there are no gaps between the layers thus solid sample. The results are reported on the Shore D sccale units.
So the results are:
PLA – 75
Carbon PLA – 83
ABS for comparison – 65
Top is standard black PLA and the bottom one is Carbon PLA. It is way less glossy
