Hi,
I would like to use more resistant materials than ABS, I think to PC-ABS, or more preferably carbon filament. Does anyone here ever tried with Zortrax?
Thank you.

Well, i reply to myself Mr. Green
After some research it seems that the Zortrax temperature extrusion is not compatible with other filaments like PCABS... But looking at the new support Zortrax section, it seems that the Z-PCABS and others are still ahead (Z-ULTRAT, Z-PCABS, Z-NYLON.) We have to wait, hopefully not too long !
i am (i suppose we are) very intrigued to know the characteristics of the Z-ULTRAT...
Zortrax guys, if you read me, please think to carbon material, this is the ultimate component for real useful prototypes.

Check out this link. They print at 260C. Zortrax extruder is 260C.. http://www.protoparadigm.com/blog/2011/12/printing-polycarbonate/

Kyle, thank you so much for this link, this is very instructive. Okay
Unfortunately the sales for this PC filament were discontinued and the product is no longer available today.
But all this shows one thing : polycarbonate printing is possible with 260° extrusion. I have yet to find a supplier.

Sounds like 300° is necessary to print correctly this material, with 0.8mm extrusion width (http://forums.reprap.org/read.php?1,269881,page=2). Not good for Zortrax i suppose..  It's possible that it works all the same, but maybe it's wiser to wait a bit and see if Zortrax decided to market its own PC-ABS. If it is not the case in a few weeks, I would make a try. However, thank you for your help Kyle.

I've tried to print using every Taulman filament available and PC-ABS using the M200, it's impossible to obtain a decent print using none of both, temp is too high for Taulman Bridge and removing support material is impossible when printing with nylon, in a few days I will be trying the 3DXTech iOn filament, let's see what happens.
