Continuous Fiber Reinforcement.

Material Innovations Expands Production Applications.

Continuous Fiber Reinforcement.


Continuous fiber 3D printing is a spool of fiber is used to embed very long strands of fiber into parts as they are printed. Continuous fiber 3D printing provides substantially more strength and stiffness because it better mimics the manufacturing process of traditional carbon fiber parts where long strands of fiber are layered on top of another in a resin.

Markforged has several machines that can lay continuous fibers. Their systems rely on separate toolheads to deposit the different materials: one extrudes a thermoplastic matrix just like a normal 3D printer and the other lays down strands of fiber in select areas to increase tensile strength. They can work with carbon fiber, fiberglass, and kevlar.
