3D printed aligned chopped fiber composites may provide a path to superior 3D printed plastics

Researchers at the University of Bristol recently announced that they had developed a method for 3D printing chopped glass fiber reinforced epoxy with aligned fibers. The method combines a standard photopolymer 3D printer with ultrasonic transducers. The ultrasound creates an acoustic standing wa...
