This is very interesting and informative. Thanks for the reply. I didn't cite the post to prove the truth of the matter you're asserting, strong or not, but to shift the discussion away from the chopping up carbon statement to something more relevant, like the rest of what you posted. I should have been more clear.
Since it appears that you have some expertise in the matter at hand, what are your thoughts one the loss of laying the strands vertically for different vectors of rigidity? What I mean is, it looks like the current strands are laid down on the horizontal plane and just layered on top, losing the ability for strands to run lengthwise. Given that compromise, what kind of products would this printer be good at printing, which, not so good?
