No, you're not wrong.

Carbon fibre needs high temperature/pressure to set. You need to make a negative matrix, put the fibre inside (by hand or via a wire-pistol-cutter) and then put the matrix in a high-pressure injector (40 ton or maybe 60 ton will suffice) and then inject the resin.

Expect to throw away some like 60000 (sixty thousand!) USD to make a single Amiga case!
