Composites and 3D printing

In general, even concrete could be considered a composite because it is a material made up of multiple different materials.

 

However, the term is most often used from an engineering point of view, which means we are talking about a material that has been reinforced with fibers.

 

Even though fibers are very beneficial when combined with another material, they are almost exclusively used to be added to a matrix material in the form of short fibers or in the form of fiber reinforcement.

 

One of the most popular fibers in the 3D printing industry is carbon fiber because it has one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios.

VectorX uses specialized 3D printers to work with high quality composites.
