Desktop Metal Introduces Fiber

Introducing Fiber

Introducing Fiber, the first 3D printer with AFP continuous carbon fiber reinforcement using high temperature resistant PEEK and PEKK, designed to deliver industrial fiber performance on the desktop

Introducing Fiber™. Starting at $3,495. Combining continuous fiber tape with industry-proven composites, Fiber™ makes it possible for every engineer to create parts with unrivaled strength and lightness, all from their desktop.

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 printers feature one of the largest build envelopes of any continuous fiber desktop printer and are designed to […]
