This Markforged Desktop Series Plastic Extruder is a genuine replacement part. It is compatible with the Onyx One, Onyx Pro and Mark Two as well as the previous Mark Two Standard, Professional and Enterprise models.
What does the plastic extruder do?
The plastic extruder is what the onyx passes through when printing is in progress. For printers except the Onyx One, this is in tandem with the fibre extruder to add even more strength and durability to your parts. The Onyx One cannot print with additional fibre, but onyx has chopped carbon fibre inbuilt so parts printed on this are still incredibly strong compared to ABS and Nylon.
When should I replace the plastic extruder?
You will need to replace your plastic extruder if your existing one fails, or if the performance of the extruder starts to degrade. Markforged 3D printers are actually very reliable and dependable machines, however part breakdowns do happen. Markforged offers a very good 1-year warranty on parts with the Desktop Series, however if your plastic extruder breaks down not as a result of a manufacturing defect, you will not be covered by the standard warranty.
Buying a replacement plastic extruder is a quick and easy process. Simply add it to your shopping cart, go to checkout and complete your purchase. Or, if you need any help with choosing the right part for your 3D printer, phone us on 01765 540 115 or contact us here.

Markforged 3D printers are built to last. They have industrial-grade mechatronics and extruders, as well as hardy nozzles designed to cope with the abrasiveness of composites, which as they extrude, wear down regular nozzles.
You may need to replace your extruder with a spare part (like-for-like replacement) if it develops a fault over time, or if you damage the unit accidentally. With good care, your extruder will last for thousands of print cycles but if you use it extensively this will reduce its lifespan, as with all mechanical components.
Levelling shims are another Markforged spare part we sell quite regularly. These exist to eliminate flatness issues when calibrating the print bed. They aid alignment and levelling to ensure the bed clicks into place right and are compatible with all Desktop series 3D printers and may be suitable for others (please ask).
Please only use genuine spare parts with your Markforged 3D printer and beware unofficial parts for they do not offer the same quality or performance. We are an authorised Markforged reseller, so all our spare parts are genuine.
