Thule Embraces FDM Nylon 12 Carbon Fibre 

Track-Ready Prototypes Enable Functional Testing For Less Cost
 
Thule uses the strength of carbon fibre materials to take their design prototypes to the next level –performance testing. While this testing can be brutal, Thule engineers say 3D printed racks using Stratasys FDM Nylon 12 Carbon Fibre have the rigor to withstand the track. But it’s not only prototypes that get the carbon fiber treatment at Thule. They also 3D print jigs and fixtures with the high strength and stiffness capabilities of carbon fibre. 3D printing has saved Thule:

-Two weeks off every design cycle
-$45,000 in the first few months of use
-Time-to-market

Watch the video to see the strength of carbon fiber in action.
