3D printed materials research opens up the possibilities of carbon fiber structures

A team of researchers in Russia have published a paper that uses 3D printing to unlock the potential of carbon fiber composite materials. The materials are commonly used in industry to make lightweight and durable parts. In the Russian space program Roscosmos, carbon-plastic is used to make the fairing of the Soyuz family of rockets. Carbon fiber is also used in components for Formula 1 cars. 1990 Exoto Formula 1 carbon fiber test car.
