Carbon fiber is a wonderful material, strong and lightweight. But building with it is both intimidatingly complex and prohibitively expensive-which is why Mark Forged has developed this new 3D printer which can build objects layer-by-layer using the stuff. Unveiled at SolidWorks World 2014 in San Diego, the Mark One can print in carbon fiber, fiberglass, nylon and PLA. And perhaps most...
