Introducing FRP3D

At FRP3D, we love new technology and high performance materials. We believe that for each product an optimum design, material and production process exist and we consider it our challenge to find these.

The world of 3D printing has seen enormous developments in the past decade. The range of applications for 3D printing is greatly expanded as the quality and size of printed products continue to increase.

FRP3D is now ready to take the next step by offering 3D printed composites. We have modified and combined various innovative processes to create our new FRP3D process. With this technique we are able to produce unique composite products in complex geometries, with low weight and with the high strength and stiffness that composites are known for.

  • Fast turn-around times

    We don’t need a mould to produce, hence production of the final part can start immediately.

  • Structural products

    Products are intended for use in structural applications, not just prototypes.

  • Freedom in geometry

    Our layer-wise production allows for a greater freedom of shapes.

  • Cost effective & durable

    We save materials and reduce production costs.

What is FRP3D

FRP3D is a newly developed method of creating high performance composite products, based on innovative 3D-printing technology.

Fiber Reinforced Plastics (FRP), or composites, are materials well-known for their high strength and stiffness and low mass. This makes these materials very suitable for high performance products. Current production methods for composites require a mould, which increases their cost and limits their possible complexity.

Our FRP3D process does not require an expensive mould hence more efficient products are now possible!

Relative strength and stiffness

Generic tensile strength (blue) and modulus (green) values, FDM = 100. This graph show the enormous gain in strength and stiffness of FRP3D products compared to other 3D printing techniques.


The four steps below describe the patent-pending FRP3D process. Click them to obtain more information.


Prepraring the 3D model

Any printed product starts with a 3D design. Generally our customers supply the design file in the format they generate.

We modify the design where required to fit to the parameters of our process.


Optimising print sequence and fibre layout

Fibres are strong and stiff in lengthwise direction, hence the main goal is to orient them as favourable as possible in the final product. Within the FRP3D process we are able to orient fibres in multiple directions and also generate layers as is common in normal composite products. This means that we don’t have weak layer-to-layer problems.


Creating the 3D reinforced product

This is where the actual forming of the product takes place. Using UV light and specially formulated resin systems, we are able to create the required product. The process allows us to use various fibres and resin combinations depending on the product requirements, e.g. glass, aramid, or carbon fibre reinforced composites are all possible.


Finalising the product

Products can be finished in accordance with our customers wishes. This can be as simple as a coating for eastethical purposes or more complex functional additions. Any product that leaves our facility is carfully checked in compliance with our quality procedure.

Our Team

We all have different backgrounds, but we share a passion for technology. We developed the FRP3D process from scratch, meaning that we understand and fully control each aspect of the process. We can talk about solutions straightaway, rather than having to go back and verify possibilities.

  • 3D Modelling and adjusting models for 3D process
  • Product development and engineering
  • Selecting fibres and resins to optimise product performance
  • Product realisation using FRP3D process
