Printing in carbon fibre

What's weird is that the carbon fibre is in long strands. I wonder how they cut it after it's extruded.

And carbon fibre is usually embedded in epoxy or other resin, so I ask, Huh?

Some crazy plastic voodoo...

I imagine they do have to cut the strand ... probably multiple times during printing.

I'm guessing the "resin" is replaced by PLA or nylon with embedded fiber.
