Bottom Line

Overall, I love the quality of this filament and what it produces.
Its strong, looks great and is really easy to use. If you're used to PLA, don't let the differences of PETG put you off...just go for it!

Emvio Carbloaded PETG Filament

O.M.veeeooo – Emvio Carbloaded PETG filament…it’s amazing!

Emvio Carbloaded PETG

I am currently in the process of printing the Open RC F1 car using various manufacturer filaments, and being F1, cars, engineering, engines…you gotta have some carbon fibre right!?? Behold the Emvio Carbloaded PETG!

The guys over at Emvio Engineering kindly donated some of their Carbloaded PETG filament for me to use, and just wow! I love its look, it’s feel and ease of printing. The well designed packaging is a bonus too!

Having printed most of the Open RC F1 car using my CR10 Mini & CR10S,  by the time I received the filament, I did in fact need to re-print some of the parts as I wasn’t happy with the finished print from my CR10S.

Using the Emvio Carbloaded PETG I decided to print the main body cockpit so it would stand out. I also printed the BOM structures for the steering to give it extra strength and rigidity.

The packaging

The Emvio Carbloaded PETG comes sealed as you’d expect, however, the bag it comes in is resealable…a nice touch! The packaging is funky looking and on the back has the following information:

  • Info on the company,
  • how to store the filament,
  • How to use
  • The precautions

The filament

The feel of the filament is a course like material and does seem more brittle than your normal PLA, but there was no issues with this. It is my first time printing with PETG.

When preparing the filament to load onto my printer, it seemed to spring into action, unwinding itself from the spool but luckily only the beginning of the spool unwound as I was able to catch it in time to avoid any snags later down the line.

The printing!

To print the exotic filaments, its advised to use a hardened nozzle…unfortunately, I didn’t have this and I was keen to get printing, so I just used your normal 0.4mm brass nozzle, and I had no issues at all.

After several hours of printing, I was able to continue, although I did change it just in case anything was to go wrong with further prints.

I printed at 230° and bed heated at 65° with a bit of tape to help with adhesion with the first layer and found this worked really well for me.

I thought there would have been a smell whilst printing this, and there was none at all.

The printing was flawless with hardly any visible layer lines! (Just the rough texture this filament gives you which is neat and gives it that engineering carbon fibre look)

I do know that there are other similar filaments out there which give a different look of carbon fibre, but I have yet to try those)

Emvio Carbloaded PETG

The look and feel is just superb. It feels strong, durable and whilst still has some flex in the thinner parts, it stood up to some pressure!

Emvio Carbloaded PETG on Open RC

As you can see above, I used the Emvio Carbloaded PETG for the main body of the Open RC F1 car, mainly for it’s looks.

For the strength, I printed the BOM structures for the steering to ensure if any accident was to happen, the steering would stay intact.

The finished Open RC F1 car fully printed. A later article will be produced on this, so keep an eye out for that!

I will plan on printing more with this filament and it has encouraged me to investigate what other exotic materials are out there, but first things first, I need to get a hardened nozzle! 🙂
