Composites 3D Printer

Staff only machine

3D printing is a form of additive manufacturing where a computer controlled extruder builds a model up layer by layer by selectively depositing material. This machine uses FDM and CFF as main technologies, laying down layers of molten Nylon filament and reinforcement fibers such as Carbon Fiber, Kevlar and Fiberglass.
