We are proud to operate a state of the art advanced composites manufacturing center, that produces very high quality 3D printed carbon fiber, 3D printed fiberglass, and 3D printed Kevlar.
As a UAV manufacturing company at heart, our main business is manufacturing high quality drones for customers in 100+ countries around the world. When we build a drone for NASA, it is vital that the 3D printed parts are manufactured to the highest possible quality while also being economical to print.
When we saw the extremely high quality work that our state of the art 3D printing lab was able to produce, we decided to offer it's services to external customers.
Generally the cost of 3D printing equipment for carbon fiber, kevlar, and fiberglass can be very expensive. We pride ourselves on running a very high volume, lean operation. That means you get very high quality prints, at a very affordable cost. We guarantee the lowest price for printing in these materials, and also offer the same very high quality we print our drone parts in that go to customers such as NASA, Uber, Lockheed Martin, and other prominent users.
We are so confident you will be satisfied, that we offer a 100% money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with your print. We ship worldwide, and can offer express printing for parts that are needed more urgently.
What Is Continuous Carbon Fiber?
Carbon fiber is a thin filament made up of carbon atoms organized into a crystalline structure. Because of its very high stiffness and strength it is widely used in the aerospace and automotive industries. The Continuous Carbon Fiber Filament we offer is unique because unlike traditional 3D printing, there is no layering. The carbon fiber threading is continuous throughout the whole print, making is extremely strong.
3D printed carbon fiber is 25x more rigid than ABS and 2x more rigid than any of our other fibers. Compared to 6061 aluminum, 3D printed carbon fiber has a 50% higher strength-to-weight ratio in flexure and 300% higher in tension.
What is Continuous Carbon Fiber Best For?
Carbon fiber material is strong enough to replace aluminum at half the weight; use it when you want superior stiffness and minimal deflection. It is our most popular print material due to its impressive properties, and ability to replace aluminum parts at a fraction of the weight, however it is also our most expensive. For many applications it may be overkill, and one of our other materials may be sufficient.

What Is Kevlar?
Kevlar is a synthetic fiber developed and produced by DuPont. Know for its light weight and toughness, it is traditionally used in products such as tires, sails, rope, and protective equipment. Kevlar is an excellent material for 3D printing.
In three-point bending, 3D printed Kevlar is 3x stronger than ABS and 6x stronger than nylon. 3D printed Kevlar is 12x more rigid than ABS and 30x more rigid than nylon.
What Is Kevlar Best For?
Kevlar is best utilized in parts that will see lots of physical use. Its low density and high durability make it a great option for applications involving a lot of motion or interfacing with production parts. As stiff as fiberglass and much more ductile, it can
be used for a wide variety of applications.

What Is HSHT Fiberglass?
HSHT stands for "High Strength High Temperature", which is the applications this material is best suited for. Extremely thin strands of glass bundled together into a fiber. Fiberglass is traditionally used in composites for boat, automobile, and aircraft manufacture.
HSHT fiberglass has a heat deflection temperature of 150° C (302° F). HSHT is 29x more impact resistant than ABS and more than 100x more impact resistant than PLA.
HSHT fiberglass has the ability to deflect nearly twice as much as carbon fiber and return to its original shape when unloaded.
What Is HSHT Fiberglass Best For?
With superior heat resistance and a flexural strength that is second only to carbon fiber, HSHT fiberglass is ideal for applications requiring high heat and impact resistance or high elasticity. Mold inserts or welding fixtures are a good use for HSHT Fiberglass. At high temperatures, the material will flex minimally compared to other materials that bend and lose their shape at high temperatures.
HSHT-reinforced Onyx, PLA, and ABS are each heated to 300 F. Unlike typical 3D printed parts, Onyx reinforced with HSHT fiberglass material retains its rigidity
What Is Fiberglass?
Extremely thin strands of glass bundled together into a fiber. Fiberglass is traditionally used in composites for boat, automobile, and aircraft manufacture.
In three-point bending 3D printed fiberglass is 3.5x stronger than ABS and 7x stronger than nylon
What Is Fiberglass Best For?
Use fiberglass composite material to print parts that are an order of magnitude stiffer than typical 3D printed objects at a very affordable price.

What Is Chopped Carbon Onyx?
Chopped Carbon Onyx is a mix of nylon mixed and chopped carbon fiber offering a high-strength thermoplastic with excellent heat resistance, surface finish, and chemical resistance.
What Is Chopped Carbon Onyx Best For?
Chopped Carbon is best for applications that do not need a lot of strength, but need
Use Chopped Carbon Onyx filament for anything from tooling and fixtures to end-use parts.
