Carbon Fiber 3D Printing

The Mark One claims to be the world’s first Carbon Fiber 3D Printer.  It would allow for design and creation of carbon fiber parts that are quickly and cleanly created in a desktop box.

It appears to allow for a new evolution in manufacturing of composite parts.  Several advantages are obvious, including cleanliness, speed, and losing the requirement for a mold.  Not needing a mold will be a big cost-saver for this process.  Post-mold trimming of parts will be an additional cost saver as well.

It will be interesting to see this technology develop.  There are several questions regarding its commercial application, but it should create new avenues for uses of carbon fiber in the world.
