Owning the earliest patents on 3D printing continuous fibers; our technology, Continuous Fiber 3D Printing (CF3D™), constitutes a fundamental shift in the manufacturing process of Advanced Composite Materials (ACM). Our technology leverages rapid curing resins paired with continuous fibers creating a moldless, Out of Autoclave (OOA) composite manufacturing process. CF3D™ can also embed functionality with fiber optics and copper wires creating a part that can sense and react to environmental stimuli.View our Tech
Composite materials with their low weight, exceptional versatility, and tailorable properties have been slowly revolutionizing high-performance industries for decades. We have combined these materials with the latest technology in 3D printing and robotics opening new design possibilities for manufacturers and consumers. Traditional 3D printing and the composites manufacturing industry are plagued with the limitation of only being able to stack 2D slices; our technology can discretely print fibers in response to loads oriented in all 3 dimensions.View our Tech
Our patented technology, Continuous Fiber 3D Printing (CF3D™), is the cornerstone for the next industrial revolution. Our intellectual property portfolio consists of over 200 patented and patent pending concepts and growing. We are seeking to develop and license our technology to industry participants in all sectors including aerospace, automotive, defense, construction, etc.
The latest news about Continuous Composites' pioneering tech.
Continuous Fiber 3D Printing (CF3D™) combines composite materials with a 3D printing process, creating a moldless out-of-autoclave process. The result is a drastic reduction in cost and lead times. CF3D™ technology is a finalist for the industry’s most prestigious JEC World Innovation Awards 2019 in the 3D Printing category.
Continuous Composites has been named as on the of the 30 finalists that have been selected by an international jury of experts from hundreds of applications for the JEC Innovation Awards.
The goal is to revolutionize the manufacturing industry with continuous fiber 3D printing, which uses robotics to print in free space. "It completely changes the way you can use composite materials," said Continuous Composites CEO Tyler Alvarado. And this groundbreaking technology is being developed at the company's facility in Coeur d'Alene...
