There have been a few requests for information on ongoing research activities
in the areas of layered manufacturing with fiber composites and elastomers.

1. We have had success in fabricating parts by fused deposition modeling
   using chopped high-aspect ratio fibers and continuous fibers.

2. We are also pursuing fused deposition modeling with soft elastomers
   (60-80 Shore A).

We expect to present specific results on both projects later this summer.
