Dispelling the Carbon Fiber Myth: Chopped vs Continuous Fibers
Carbon fiber is perhaps the second most sought-after additive manufacturing material, after metal. Thanks to recent developments in the additive manufacturing space, carbon fiber materials are finally catching on across the industry. Whether it’s blended with PETG, PEEK, or nylon, printer and filament manufacturers alike boast of carbon fiber’s ability to enhance the surface finish, strength, and thermal properties of printed parts.
And for the most part, that’s true.
However, not all carbon fiber 3D printers are created equal — while microscopic chopped fibers can enhance the strength of printed parts to rival those of molded thermoplastics, only the Continuous Fiber Reinforcement process invented by Markforged can boost mechanical properties by an order of magnitude for true replacement of metal components.
We invite you to join our webinar as we take a deep dive into the role of carbon fiber in 3D printing. In this webinar, we will cover:
