INDUSTRIAL  3D PRINTING MATERIALS

Engineering-grade materials enable you to use 3D printing to make parts suitable for every stage in the manufacturing process.

ONYX

Already 40% stiffer than ABS, Onyx provides the foundation for Markforged’s 3D printed advanced composites materials. It can be printed on its own or reinforced with any of our four continuous fibers.

FIBER MATERIALS

Markforged is the first company to offer 3D printed continuous fibers, enabling composite parts robust enough to replace machined metal.

Continuous Filament Fabrication (CFF) is the method with which fiber reinforced composites are 3D printed. Continuous fibers are extruded layer-by-layer similarly to FFF processes.
