    Diff. between PLA and PLA+CF

    Hello,

    My printing samples with PLA are fine. However, after changing it to the carbon filament, the filament even cannot comes out of the nozzle. Does anybody know should I use larger diameter nozzle for CF printing? Also, the temperature is 260 for carbon, while for PLA was 210.
    Which parameters should be altered for this material?
    Finally, why sometimes even I use just extrusion manually, the carbon filament maybe clog inside the nozzle?

    Thanks

    if it's 260 then it's NOT pla.

    I've tried pla with carbon fibres and it prints at normal pla temperatures.

    Yep
    I said that it is not pla it is pla+cf (carbon fiber).
    you used same nozzle and temp with pla and pla+cf and get same result?!

    Also, which 3d printer you used? what nozzle diameter?
    Actually, we are writing our own gcode. Maybe the problem rises from there. Even though the print orientation is same and temperature, I don't know how can I get the same quality
