THE METAL X

A breakthrough in metal 3D printing – for the first time create robust metal parts using a method accessible to all engineers and manufacturers.

Markforged Metal 3D Printing Process

Design & Slice

CAD your part, upload the STL to Eiger, and select your material. The software slices your part, automatically generating supports where necessary.

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.

Wash

After printing, “green” parts are placed into the Wash-1, which uses a debinding fluid to dissolve most of the plastic binding material.

Sinter

Washed “brown” parts are placed in a Markforged furnace, where they are heated with a material-specific profile to burn away remaining binder and solidify metal powder.

Markforged metals

Markforged metal filaments combine the simplicity and safety of FFF printing with the superior properties of advanced metals, bringing metal 3D printing to your benchtop.

3D Printing Software – Eiger

Featuring an easy-to-use interface, automatic version control, real-time fleet management, and cloud-based collaboration, Markforged Eiger is the world’s most advanced 3D printing software. Eiger is available in three configurations: browser based, desktop application with local storage, and fully offline.
