Industrial-grade materials enable you to use 3D printing to make parts suitable for every stage in the manufacturing process beyond prototypes & toys. To be sure, Flexmech has conducted our own hardness test, time & time again to be sure that our customers are truly satisfied with Markforged.
Base Plastic Material
Nylon mixed with chopped carbon fiber offers a high-strength thermoplastic with excellent surface finish, and chemical resistance inclusive of a heat deflection temperature of 145°C.
ONYX FR FILAMENT
Certified UL 94 V-0 rated flame-retardant nylon filled with chopped carbon fiber.Onyx FR should be used to print parts that need high-strength, low-weight, and flame-retardant properties. Reinforce Onyx FR with continuous carbon fiber to be as strong as 6061 aluminium at half the weight.
* Only available on Industrial printers
NYLON WHITE FILAMENT
Nylon white in its purest, it is stronger, stiffer and more reliable than our original Nylon material. The material exhibits a smooth, non-abrasive surface finish, and is reinforceable with any of our continuous fiber material options.
FIBER GLASS REINFORCEMENT
Inexpensive but 11x stiffer than ABS and 26x more rigid than nylon, fiberglass is the perfect entry-level fiber for 3D printing.
Use fiberglass composite material to print parts with reinforcement at an affordable price.
CARBON FIBER REINFORCEMENT
Markforged’s strongest fiber with the highest strength-to-weight ratio. In three-point bending, our 3D printed carbon fiber is 8x stronger than ABS and 20% stronger than the yield strength of aluminium. Consider Carbon Fiber when you need superior stiffness & minimal deflection.
Kevlar® is tough, lightweight material, and can bend further than any other fiber, making it ideal for 3D printing. It is 8x more impact resistant than ABS while remaining 15–20% lighter than our other reinforcement fibers. Kevlar is best utilized in parts that will take a beating. Its low density and high durability make it a great option for applications involving a lot of motion or interfacing with production parts.
A2 TOOL STEEL
General purpose tool steel for cold working applications. Markforged printed and heat-treated A2 Tool Steel effectively matches conventional heat-treated A2 in hardness (HRC 60 compared to HRC 54).
D2 TOOL STEEL
High-compression, wear-resistant tool steel for cold-working applications.
Markforged printed and heat-treated D2 Tool Steel effectively matches heat-treated D2 in hardness (HRC 60 compared to HRC 54).
H13 TOOL STEEL
Tool steel optimized for high temperature and high wear applications. Markforged printed and heat-treated H13 Tool Steel effectively matches wrought heat-treated H13 tool steel in strength and hardness, achieving 1420 MPa compared to heat treatment 1500 MPa.
Nickel-chromium-based superalloy that is highly resistant to corrosion and high temperatures.
Parts printed in Inconel 625 are significantly easier to produce than with traditional manufacturing methods, allowing you to easily create functional prototypes and end-use parts for harsh environments.
Pure copper possesses excellent thermal and electrical conductivity. Copper is notoriously difficult, time consuming, and expensive to fabricate using traditional methods.
3D printing enables you to print geometrically complex copper parts with a simple workflow.
Markforged offers pure copper — 99.8% Cu by weight.
