MarkForged has this week introduced its second generation of carbon fibre 3D printers building on the technology that was introduced in his first-generation systems launched just over two years ago at SolidWorks.
The unique design of the MarkForged 3D printers allows them to feed continuous carbon fibre into 3D printer components creating plastic designs that offer the strength of aluminium.
The Mark Two carbon fibre 3D printer has been developed using customer feedback and now provides a more reliable, 40% faster and more precise 3D printing system that can implement the carbon fibre filament into objects details 15 times smaller than before.
By reinforcing your parts with composite fiber while 3D printing them, The Mark Two achieves unparalleled strength, stiffness and durability in its printed parts. The Mark Two prints Carbon Fiber, Fiberglass, Kevlar and Nylon.
This allows you to take advantage of the non-scratch surface of Nylon and the strength of Carbon Fiber in the same part.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.
The MarkForged Mark Two Carbon fibre 3D printer is now available for customer demonstrations and is priced at $5,499 and is available through local resellers.
