It’s alive!

So the amazing team at Quorum Prosthetics took the Markforge 3D print that I had made with infused carbon and laminated it with carbon fiber weave using a vacuum bag. This idea was inspired by a coworker who did a presentation on surfboard design (foam inner with a fiberglass shell) When he presented that, I had this really cool 3D print that was strong, but I didn’t think it was strong enough to withstand the forces of mountain biking. The timing was perfect, so now it’s time to test.
