Markforged 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.

Featuring a 4th generation, all-aluminum unibody and print system, Markforged sets the standard in build quality and industrial design. With a fully enclosed build chamber, ultra-quiet motion system and environmentally controlled material storage, our printers are equally at home whether in the office or on the factory floor.

PRINTED PART: Camshaft Sprocket

The strength and surface hardness of 17-4 PH stainless steel enables printing functional toothed parts, like this camshaft sprocket.

Typical Machined Cost = $279.06

Markforged Printed Cost = $12.56

Savings = 96%

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

Now comprised only of pure metal, the final parts are ready for use. They can be processed and treated just like any other metal parts.
