    How does the Kevlar Print?

    Can someone with Mark Forged provide some details of how the printer will print out Kevlar. That's some super strong materials. Does it use fiber like carbon fiber, or is it a different method?

    Hi Vinnie,
    We will be releasing more details around Kevlar® soon. There is an image of a kevlar beam on our materials page:

    It is a continuous fiber that uses our patent pending CFF™ process. Kevlar has awesome abrasion resistance, but isn't as stiff as carbon. We are very excited about the possibilities and applications.

    Stay tuned for more info!

    How flexible are the Kevlar prints, do you have any data? Could it be used to 3D print shoe outsoles?
