Due to filaments in the epoxy resin carbon fiber sheets are not only exceedingly robust but they shine in a very special way. This is why front panels for car interiors or household appliances are made of carbon composite. Thus, even common instrument panels get an enormous upgroud.
Carbon fiber parts which have critical functions within the whole construction must be cut out accurately to fit. Carbon sheets are expensive because of the costly manufacturing. Wrong cuts and millings should be exceptional cases. Doing so you get much cleaner cutting edges than using a padsaw.
Due to the need for manufacturing functional carbon fiber parts precisely and wasting as few materials as possible, it makes sense to carbon fiber cut plotter with correctly calculated milling paths. In addition, you can make precise drill holes and cut-outs in the carbon sheet during the same operation. When the shapes to be cut out have roundings, it saves material to mill them out. Doing so you get much cleaner cutting edges than using a padsaw. After the cutting out the shapes the carbon parts you can even engrave the material on the same machine.
