DSM® Novamid® ID1030-CF10 (PA6/66-CF)

About The Materials 

Novamid ID1030 CF10 is a PA6/66 PA (nylon) type of 3D printer filament by DSM that is filled with 10% carbon fibers and 3D prints stiff, tough and strong parts with nearly injection molded properties.

Materials Documentations


NOVAMID® ID1030 CF10 is a new PA6/66 grade of carbon reinforced polyamide that brings properties of 3D printed parts close to what is usually achievable only by injection molding. With a loading of 10% carbon fiber, printed parts are stronger, tougher and stiffer compared with other FFF materials available, while matching the easy and fast printing of unreinforced plastics.


  • Is a pure polyamide 6/polyamide 66, and was originally developed many years ago by our Engineering Plastics experts for demanding 3D printable at same speed as unreinforced plastics thanks to low carbon loading of 10%

  • Enables properties close to what is usually achievable only by injection molding

  • Very low warpage compared to unfilled PA

  • Durable parts with good mechanical properties due to high inter-layer strength

  • Made from DSM Novamid copolyamide PA6/66, which is used in automotive and electronics for many years

  • HDT of 184ºC at 1.8MPa

  • Characteristic matte black surface-finish with less roughness


Novamid® ID1030 CF10@DSM is available in the original packaging of DSM.

Additional information

The material is designed specifically for 3D printing, and can be printed on standard desktop fused filament fabrication (FFF) machines with a hardened nozzle. Tests have shown that users can run their printers at the same speeds as with unreinforced plastics, while achieving considerably better strength and toughness.


In order to prevent moisture pick up and contamination, supplied packaging should be kept closed and undamaged. For the same reason, partially used bags should be sealed before re-storage. Allow the material that has been stored elsewhere to adapt to the temperature in the processing room while keeping the bag closed.
