Abstract

3D printed composites is a relatively new and untested market in the composites industry. 3D printing in general is becoming a widely used manufacturing method because of its ease, versatile capabilities, and consistency. Recent improvement in 3D printing enables 3D printing of composites fibers in any given direction. In this study, continuous carbon fiber onyx samples were manufactured using Markforged X7 3D printers. Samples with three different fiber orientations were manufactured to determine all elastic properties. The results show that while the properties are lower than high strength CFRPs, there is high potential for the use of 3D printed composites upon improving the matrix properties as well as the bonding between fiber and matrix.
