Those technologies fascinate me… Look at the video of this giant 3d loom, created by Lexus to weave tubes of carbon fibers.
We had to invent a loom, a special type of weaving machine that didn’t exist before. It’s a circular loom. It’s maybe 2 meters across, about 6 feet across. It is able to weave, not a flat piece of fabric, but produces a circular weave that comes out of the end of the loom. And it has just the right thickness and just the right amount of carbon fiber threads at every point to give us all of the structural properties we need for that part of the LFA.
