Desktop Metal Fiber LT

Fiber™ is the only composite 3D printer to use Micro Automated Fiber Placement (μAFP) which allows for easy-to-use high-quality composite printing at a price point every engineer and designer can access. The Fiber LT offers desktop printing of high-strength, ESD-safe, nylon-based continuous fiber parts with exceptional mechanical properties.

Product Description

The Fiber printer uses with two printheads—one dedicated to a continuous fiber prepreg tape; one dedicated to chopped fiber-reinforced filament. This composite printing can create stronger, lighter-weight components that are over 75x stiffer and 60x stronger than standard ABS. Designed for versatility, the printer supports a wide range of both chopped fiber filament and continuous fiber composites to enable a broad set of applications from consumer electronics to automotive.
