Making composite parts from 3D printed paper molds
Mcor Techologies is located in Dunleer, Ireland, about 60 km north of Dublin. It was founded in 2005 by brothers Dr. Conor MacCormack (CEO) and Fintan MacCormack (CTO), with the goal of developing 3D printers that would be so cheap and easy to use that the technology would become much more accessible. Though the cost of printers was coming down, the cost of materials was skyrocketing. As the brothers considered what printing material was eco-friendly, easy to work with and cheap, paper was the obvious answer. It could also be easily colored.
