New for 2017, the Markforged X5 offers you the strength you need for manufacturing functional parts. Print parts faster and cheaper than machining, and utilise the X5’s ability to print Onyx with Fibreglass reinforcement. Parts printed with Continuous Filament Fabrication are up to 20x stiffer and 30x stronger than ABS.

Markforged X5

Precise and Accurate 3D Printing

Designed for accuracy, reliability and unbeatable precision, the Markforged X5 offers a truly first-class 3D printing experience. Offering a 330-mm x 270 mm x 200 mm build volume, the Markforged X5 gives you the space you need to manufacture all manner of parts. It prints with a 50um layer resolution, and offers both cloud-based and local storage software solutions. It’s highly secure too, with single sign-on and two-factor authentication to prevent unauthorised use.

Print Parts Up To 30x Stronger than ABS

The Markforged X5’s core filament is Onyx, a jet-black material that’s part engineering-grade nylon, part chopped carbon fibre. On its own, this material is 20 per cent stronger and 40 per cent stiffer than ABS, but you can go one step further with the X5 by reinforcing Onyx parts with Fibreglass to suit any mechanical end-use application.

Brake Lever in Eiger

When reinforced with Fibreglass, Onyx parts can be stronger than 60 61-T6 aluminium (depending on infill). This makes the X5 the ideal industrial-grade 3D printer for replacing costly machining processes. You can reinforce parts with Fibreglass to benefit from a high strength-to-cost ratio. Fibreglass CFF is robust, lightweight and extremely strong.

What People Say

“Our first Markforged printer paid itself off in less than 1.5 months and saved us over 81% versus machining.”
– Bill Hollingsworth, Dixon Valve

“The X5 has the additional ability to reinforce the Onyx part with continuous fiber-glass. As a result, it can make composites 9X stronger and 10X stiffer than standard thermoplastics.”
– Rawal Ahmed, 3D Printing

Many 3D printers lay claim to being ‘industrial-grade’ but when you delve into their material list, rarely do you find anything more durable than nylon.

That’s where Markforged 3D printers differ. In the case of the Desktop and Industrial series 3D printers, these use nylon or Onyx as the base material (Onyx is a proprietary filament made by Markforged, it’s part nylon, part chopped carbon fibre). You can then reinforce prints with continuous strands of a stronger composite - carbon fibre, fibreglass, or Kevlar - to create truly industrial-grade prototypes and end-use parts.

For example, parts printed in carbon fibre are stronger than 6061-T6 aluminium. The Desktop series includes the Mark Two, Onyx One and Onyx Pro, and the Industrial series the X7, X5, and X3. There’s a printer for every application.

Then there’s the Metal X, Markforged’s greatest machine yet. This 3D printer utilises a process called ADAM (Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing) to print parts in powdered metal surrounded by a plastic support. The parts are then sintered in a furnace externally to become solid. This enables you to manufacture metal parts with geometries and details that would be impossible with subtractive manufacturing processes.
