California startup Mighty Buildings’ award-winning prefabricated building production process relies on large-format 3D printing, UV-curable resins, digital design and automation.
French technology platform expands access to composites beyond aerospace, while humm3 offers cost-effective dry fiber and thermoplastic tape placement in addition to CF/epoxy prepregs.
It used to be enough that AFP systems could precisely and quickly place and cut multiple tows to build complex aerostructures. Now, fabricators need those tows steered, and the tighter the radius, the better.

The new building demonstrates the company's patented Continuous Fiber 3D Printing (CF3D), and reflects the relationships it has built over the years with industry members.
Technical flange is designed to avoid resin waste up to 80%, improve surface finish and save on cost and production time.
Other composites innovations include recyclable CFRP connectors, interwoven Dynema/carbon fiber reinforcements and integrating damage sensors into the frame.
