A new 3D printing material called Onyx has been unveiled this week by Markforged which has been designed to provide a performance upgrade from other 3D printing materials currently on the market.
Lynx has been created by combining nylon with micro-carbon fibres two reducing material that is not only tougher than other 3D printing materials but also more tolerant to heat, dimensionally stable and also stiffer.
Markforged explain more :
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.
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. 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.
Added micro-carbon reinforcing fiber makes for more stable parts, driving increased dimensional stability and print success rate. 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.
