    Printed on my R1 Plus with Robo Carbon Fiber PLA I actually used two different ithingverse builds to make this one build. Snaps in sturdy.

    Thanks it came out real nice, the more I use the Carbon fiber PLA from Robo the more I like it. It makes for some smooth prints and quality parts

    unsure if it matters or not for the robo stuff, but with most CF filled materials you should really run a hardened nozzle. The carbon fiber is abrasive and can ruin nozzles. I have only used CF XT, and Protopasta Carbon Fiber, but both can wreck a brass nozzle in no time.

    It matters, but as long as you are aware of the abrasion and check the nozzle periodically, nozzles are cheap :)
    Still, I got tired of dealing with it and went hardened nozzles myself too..
