AREVO’s new continuous-fiber composite printing process enables full-scale production of anisotropic carbon fiber frames as ride-tuneable as conventional unidirectional CF construction, with minimal tooling and hand labor, impact resistance and recyclability of thermoplastic, and customization on a per-part basis – for production, not prototypes!

Bill is bicycle design engineer, co-founder of StudioWest in Boulder, Colorado, USA, developing frames and components for 20+ years.  Specialty in carbon fiber form development for brands including Factor, Yeti, Electra, Cannondale, Niner, and Greg LeMond.
