Luke Skywalker's X-34 Landspeeder, seen in "A New Hope," as well as Rey's speeder- bike from "Še Force Awakens," were provided courtesy of the Sci-Fi Museum of Texas. Še speeders are comprised of West System 105 epoxy matrix with 'berglass and carbon 'ber reinforcements. A combination of triple layer wet layup, semi- closed mold and vacuum bagged layups were used.

"In addition, we are seeing more and more companies and attendees new to the composites market, which proves that CAMX is the place to be for composites and advanced materials information. We are working hard to keep CAMX relevant and exciting, and provide content that helps grow the industry and increase composites use across all end markets."
