The entire technique as such will change soon.

It will happen thanks to you. Anyone can use this new method, even in their own garage, for a few bucks, although its advantages are far greater than what today's big industry has.

If you've ever been curious what is coming after 3D printing, it's worth reading:

I will be very grateful for any comments, suggestions and your help!

If you want exquisite metal items, follow this recipe below ...


Start by dreaming up a beautiful thing.


Then take some carbon fibers or graphite fibers. Create whatever you want with it.


These magic fibers will be the geometric precursor to your item. They will also guarantee superb endurance.

That carbon thing's gonna be metal if you throw it in a plating bath. Now the miracles will begin! :)

I understand most of the process, but it seems to me that the most difficult part is the outer casing to fill in the carbon fibres.

How did you get the green casing in the beginning?

  Are you sure? yes | no

It was 3d-printed on a resin printer. Casing is only for shape, you can make it from anything non-conductive. If you don't want to make casing, you could try making shapes from carbon-felt.

It's the easiest part. You just print it (DLP printer). However, it's only one of a few ways.

Ive been experimenting with same thing 6 months ago.

Really? Please, show your work! I am very interested. Thank you!

It failed, weak power supply. Definetly gonna try it in future after seing your results.

Did you removed coating from carbon fiber?

  Are you sure? yes | no

Michał wrote 10/09/2021 at 15:48 point

What kind of coating?

  Are you sure? yes | no

maxspeed11 wrote 10/09/2021 at 22:20 point

Usually thin layer of epoxy or polyester etc., the process is called sizing.

  Are you sure? yes | no

Fibers from recycling (after pyrolysis) were clean but I had problems with a new roving.

  Are you sure? yes | no

Wow, I've thought you will never tell anybody how it's done. Nice results, thank you!

> In what area and how would you use this method? Thank you in advance for your help!

I'll try to make better heat exchangers for my heat engine.

  Are you sure? yes | no

"I've thought you will never tell anybody how it's done."

Me too... ;)

Things like this don't happen often, and I can't get it all. However, from the beginning I was planning to release this information, it is too serious matter, it has to serve all people.

  Are you sure? yes | no
