3D printing with high-performance carbon fiber

Feb. 28, 2017- 
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) researchers have become the first to 3D print aerospace-grade carbon fiber composites, opening the door to greater control and optimization of the lightweight, yet stronger than steel material. The research, published by the journal Scientific Reports online on March 6, represents a "significant advance" in the development of micro-extrusion 3D...
