Owning the earliest patents on 3D printing continuous fibers; our technology, Continuous Fiber 3D Printing (CF3D™), constitutes a fundamental shift in the manufacturing process of Advanced Composite Materials (ACM). Our technology leverages rapid curing resins paired with continuous fibers creating a moldless, Out of Autoclave (OOA) composite manufacturing process. CF3D™ can also embed functionality with fiber optics and copper wires creating a part that can sense and react to environmental stimuli.View our Tech
Composite materials with their low weight, exceptional versatility, and tailorable properties have been slowly revolutionizing high-performance industries for decades. We have combined these materials with the latest technology in 3D printing and robotics opening new design possibilities for manufacturers and consumers. Traditional 3D printing and the composites manufacturing industry are plagued with the limitation of only being able to stack 2D slices; our technology can discretely print fibers in response to loads oriented in all 3 dimensions.View our Tech
Our patented technology, Continuous Fiber 3D Printing (CF3D™), is the cornerstone for the next industrial revolution. Our intellectual property portfolio consists of over 200 patented and patent pending concepts and growing. We are seeking to develop and license our technology to industry participants in all sectors including aerospace, automotive, defense, construction, etc.
The latest news about Continuous Composites' pioneering tech.
Continuous Composites got its start with a stab wound. When a strand of fiberglass punctured Ken Tyler’s skin, the North Idaho inventor started thinking about the strength of the lightweight material. “It’s an amazing technology, and it’s going to change how things are built,” said Tyler Alvarado, the company’s Chief Executive Officer.
Coeur d'Alene is widely known for its resort atmosphere, beautiful beaches, and outdoor living. However, less than one block from its historic and touristy main street, and a stone's throw from the lake, is something few would expect to see - Continuous Composites, one of the world's top innovators in Continuous Fiber 3D Printing (CF3D™)
As the state’s premier business innovation awards program, the Idaho Innovation Awards recognize groundbreaking accomplishments in five categories. Five winners and 10 finalists were recognized at the awards ceremony, a segment of the ITC’s ninth annual Hall of Fame celebration, held at Boise Centre.
