The Multi‐Stage Filament Winding (MSFW) method is being developed to expand the geometrical possibilities of filament winding. The fabrication method enables the sustainable production of lightweight fibre composites with complex geometries. MSFW allows for great control of material parameters and laminate geometry.
The article explains the method and focuses on the geometry analysis and generation that is required to analyse components and generate the necessary temporary geometries for fabrication using MSFW.
