TECHNOLOGY:  

Electrifi – Highly conductive 3D printing filament

AFFILIATION:   Multi3D, Cary, North Carolina, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

Track: Advanced Materials
Area: Advanced Manufacturing
Tech Readiness: TRL 8

Tech Brief: Electifi filament has a resistivity of 0.006 Ω cm, which is 100 times more conductive than any other 3D printing filament, and can turn your desktop 3D printer into a manufacturer of circuits, radio frequency (RF) filters, RF antennas, and other custom RF components.

Value Proposition: There are many circumstances where time and/or resources are scarce. For example, a broken cable connector or a damaged antenna needs to be replaced quickly however replacements can take weeks. Our technology offers an immediate solution to this situation that can happen and repeat. With the highly conductive Electrifi Filament, an antenna replacement can be quickly printed to substitute the defective one. A stock of Electrifi Filament and a 3D printer also allows us to significantly reduce the types and quantities of the electronic and RF/microwave components from the inventory.
