1. A method of producing an interlaced composite comprising:
depositing onto a deposition surface a first set of one or more warp filaments in a first linear direction;
inserting, on top of the first set of warp filaments, a first set of one or more weft filaments in a second linear direction, where the second direction is in the same plane as the first set of warp filaments but is not parallel to the direction of the first set of warp filaments;
depositing, on top of the first set of weft filaments, a second set of one or more warp filaments in the first linear direction, where the second set of warp filaments are not collinear with the first set of warp filaments; and
inserting, on top of the second set of warp filaments, a second set of one or more weft filaments in the second direction;
wherein the interlaced composite is formed when at least one of said warp filaments passes over at least one of said weft filaments and passes under at least another of said weft filaments.
