New 3D Printer By MarkForged Can Print With Carbon Fiber

 

 

 

” Gregory Mark co-owns Aeromotions, which builds computer-controlled racecar wings. To make those wings both strong and lightweight, they use carbon fiber. No surprise there—it’s the material of choice for many advanced motorsports parts. The problem is that making custom racecar parts out of carbon fiber is daunting. The only real method available is CNC machining, an expensive and difficult process that requires laying pieces by hand. ”  

 


 

” To improve the process, Mark looked to 3D printing. But nothing on the market could print the material, and no available materials could print pieces strong enough for his purposes. So Mark devised his own solution: the MarkForged Mark One, the world’s first carbon fiber 3D printer. 

  Mark debuted his Boston area-based startup MarkForged at SolidWorks World 2014 in San Diego with a working prototype. The Mark One can print in carbon fiber, fiberglass, nylon and PLA (a thermoplastic). “

The History of Big Game Fishing

 

Big Game 1896–1978

The “good old times”, great moments of the pioneers – we have always to think about the fact that the Big Gamer hadn´t (useful) mono-lines or fiber-glass-rods until the end of the 50’s. They fished hickory-, bamboo or steel rods -,; the lines were twisted natural fibers (cotton, silk …)
