Markforged X3 Composite 3D Printers

Markforged products transcend the realm of 3D printing prototypes and trinkets. Using unique technology to print amazing carbon fiber parts that can be reinforced for metal-strength, we break down the barriers between idea and reality for every designer, engineer and manufacturer.

The Markforged X3 carbon fiber printer produces strictly engineering grade functional plastic parts with strength and stiffness suitable for tooling. The X3 printer delivers unparalleled reliability with state-of-the-art sensors to meet tight part requirements. The X3 is ideal for robotic components, automotive parts, high strength prototypes and prosthetics.

Industrial grade performance starts with an all-aluminum uni-body enclosure built around an ultra-flat gantry system.  Add a machined aluminum stage with kinematic bed coupling, and a precision ground print platform. Then close the loop with software – instrumenting each machine with a full sensor suite including motor encoders and a calibration laser so accurate it can compensate for single digit changes in room temperature.
