3D Printers & Scanners

Get out in front of your new product design, packaging or tooling requirements, and deliver real parts – real time. Our 3D printers generate plastic models that are tough enough to be used as working parts. This enables you to perform testing for form, fit and function right from your office.

THE MARK X

Uncompromised Strength, Precision and Beauty

The Mark X is the most powerful 3D printer on the market. With industrial-scale printing of incredibly strong parts and first ever precision sensing systems, the Mark X is destined to be the must-have printer for every manufacturer.

This printer combines the benefits of Markforged’s unique fiber reinforcement for parts as strong as metal with advanced “build as designed” sensors and the beautiful surface finish of Onyx. The Mark X will empower you to take any design concept and make it a reality.

 

Large Prints, High-Resolution

The large build volume of the Mark X makes it ideal for robotics, automotive parts, functional prototypes and prosthetics. With 50 micron resolution layer height, your parts will come out of the printer with a beautiful surface finish approaching the look and feel of injection molding.

In-Process Inspection

The Mark X gives you breakthrough quality and precision in 3D printing. Scan your parts mid-print using our cloud-based Eiger software and a laser displacement sensor affixed to the print head. Ensure dimensional accuracy at the most critical tolerances at any point in your print.

The Mark Twomark forged 2

Industrial Strength 3D Printer

Have you ever 3D printed a part that wasn’t strong enough?

The revolutionary Mark Two prints with the strength of aluminum. Now you can have the dependability of CNC parts with the flexibility of 3D printing.

 

 

 easyHigh-Strength Printing

By reinforcing your parts with composite fiber while 3D printing them, The Mark Two achieves unparalleled strength, stiffness and durability in its printed parts.

 

 

materialsRange of Materials

In addition to printing Nylon, the Mark Two prints materials that no other 3D printer can, like Carbon Fiber, Fiberglass and Kevlar.

 

 

easyEasy-To-Use

We built our own 3D printing software that comes with The Mark Two. Printing a part to be flexible or strong is easy and intuitive.

 

 

 

 

Our newest material, Onyx is a step up from other 3D printing plastics

Combining nylon with micro-carbon fibers, we’ve created a filament that’s not only tougher than other 3D printing plastics— it’s also stiffer, more heat tolerant, and more dimensionally stable.

 

Engineered for engineersOnyx 2

With the toughness of nylon, stiffness of a fiber reinforced plastic, and a heat deflection temperature of 145C, Onyx is perfectly suited for all applications that demand a high-performance material.

The parts you design are the parts you get

Added micro-carbon reinforcing fiber makes for more stable parts, driving increased dimensional stability and print success rate.

Cut post-processing out of your process

Onyx delivers a stunning matte black finish perfect for end use parts, meaning your designs can be taken off the build plate and put right into action without chemical or mechanical finishing.

The Markforged Advantage

Onyx can be used alone, or further reinforced with embedded continuous carbon fiber, Kevlar, or fiberglass layers – parts truly transcending the limits of conventional 3D printed plastic.

METAL X

Based on our 4th generation composite 3D printing technology, the Metal X is a brand new kind of 3D printer. By printing metal powder bound in a plastic matrix, we’ve eliminated the safety risks associated with traditional metal 3D printing while enabling new features like closed-cell infill for reduced part weight and cost.

DESIGN

CAD your part, upload the STL, and select from a wide range of metals. The Eiger software does the rest making printing the right part easy.

PRINT

Metal powder bound in plastic is printed a layer at a time into the shape of your part. Parts are scaled up to compensate for shrinkage during the sintering process.

SINTER

Printed parts go through a washing stage to remove some of the binder. They are then sintered in a furnace and the metal powder fuses into solid metal.

PART

Pure metal and up to 99.7% dense, the final parts are ready for use. They can be processed and treated just like any other metal parts.

PRINT WITH STAINLESS STEEL

17-4 & 316L

17-4 stainless steel combines high strength, corrosion resistance, and hardness, making it widely used in aerospace, medical and petroleum industries. We use it for assembly fixtures and tooling on the Mark X.

Also known as marine grade stainless steel, 316L stainless steel exhibits very good corrosion resistance and excellent weldability.

PRINT WITH ALUMINUM BETA

6061 & 7075

As a general purpose aluminum, 6061 combines good machinability, strength, and weldability. It can additionally be anodized with a good finish. We use it for many of the machined components in the Mark X.

7075 Aluminum is one of the strongest aluminum alloys. With good fatigue strength and a high strength-to-weight ratio, this alloy is stronger than common structural steels (A36, 1018). We use it on the kinematic coupling in the bed of the Mark X. It’s also common in aerospace and automotive racing.

PRINT WITH TOOL STEEL BETA

A-2 & D-2

A-2 tool steel is air-hardened with excellent impact resistance. We use it for punches, dies, and form tooling on the Mark X.

The high carbon and chromium content of D-2 tool steel provides great hardness and abrasion resistance (but not as tough as A-2). D-2 is often used for cutting tools.

PRINT WITH INCONEL BETA

IN Alloy 625

Inconel’s strength combined with its impressive heat resistance makes it ideal for heat and pressure shielding applications. This Nickel-based superalloy is commonly used in jet engines and medical applications, and is very hard to machine.  It is also very chemically resistant.

PRINT WITH TITANIUMBETA

Ti-6Al-4V

Bearing the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal, Titanium 6-4 is ideal for lightweight applications and has both high tensile strength and fatigue resistance. This bio-compatible material is widely used in medical applications such as orthopedic joint replacements.
