Desktop Metal, the company committed to making 3D printing accessible to engineers and manufacturers, announces the world’s first desktop 3D printer to fabricate high-resolution parts with industrial-grade continuous fiber composite materials used in automated fiber placement (AFP) processes. Based on a new process called micro automated fiber replacement (μAFP), users can now print parts with a superior level of strength and stiffness, and in a broad range of materials, that traditionally required million-dollar AFP systems. This affordable new platform produces parts using materials that are two times stronger than steel at one-fifth the weight. Fiber 3D printers feature one of [...]
