Continuous fiber 3D printing. This is a new technology begins with a continuous dry fiber that is impregnated in situ with a tailorable, snap curing thermosetting resin delivered by the end effector. The end effector is moved by a motion platform driven by proprietary software. Parts are printed with precision and optimized for the highest performance using continuous fibers.
CF3D® provided as One Solution includes the necessary hardware, materials, software, and motion platforms, bringing composites AM to the forefront. Continuous Composites concentrates on the user experience by presenting a comprehensive technology through a reliable product offering.
Human Machine Interface, usually a digital interface used to control a machine
A collection of connected lines, can be 2D or 3D
A connection between two vertices
A line with a stored direction
A single location in 3D space
Fof molecules interwoven to form a linear, string-like. They may be natural or made by humans. (e.g., carbon, glass, aramid)
Similar to structural fibers, functional fibers include components inside the fiber strands to provide a function to the printed piece. (e.g., optical, metallic)
