Carbon Fiber PLA scales
« on: June 10, 2017, 04:47:36 PM »
I have been trying to make some scales on my new 3d printer. i have been printing them with Proto-Pastas Carbon Fiber PLa. the PLA is 20 % carbon fiber and gives the scales  a matt black finish. ive been playing around with some designs too and just felt like posting them to get some kind of feedback. Tell me what you think

Looks good! Really dig the ones that looks like a tire

It's not failure if you learn something from it

I like the look of the tyre one too.  :tu:
What is the durability like compared to standard scales?

The smooth black ones look great.

I'm another who's curious about their durability.

Since they have the cabon fiber in them when i tried to print them as a hollow piece they are alot stiffer than the original scaled but are more brittle.


When you print the scales as a 100% solid they are wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy stiffer and more durable than the any normal plastic scale. and  there is no added "heavyness" to the knife.
