For a full breakdown of available materials for Markforged 3D Printers, please download this datasheet.

Onyx (Composite Base)

Micro carbon fibre filled nylon that forms the foundation of Markforged composite parts.

Onyx, our flagship Composite Base material, is a micro carbon fibre filled nylon that yields accurate parts with impeccable surface finish. Few materials have the versatility of Onyx; it offers high strength, toughness, and chemical resistance when printed alone, and can be reinforced with Continuous Fibres to yield aluminium-strength parts. Today, there are more than a million Onyx parts in the field transforming manufacturing.

Works with: Markforged X7, X5, X3, Mark Two, Onyx Pro, Onyx One.

Onyx FR (Composite Base)

Certified UL 94 V-0 rated flame-retardant micro carbon fibre filled nylon.

Onyx FR is a flame-resistant variant of Onyx designed for use in applications where parts must be non-flammable. The material earned a UL Blue Card, and is considered V-0 (self extinguishing) at thicknesses greater than or equal to 3mm. It can be reinforced with any Continuous Fibre and is compatible with industrial composite 3D Printers.

Works with: Markforged X7, X5, X3.

Onyx ESD (Composite Base)

Stronger, stiffer, and ESD resistant Onyx variant for industrial applications.

Onyx ESD is the most advanced polymer we’ve ever developed. It’s precision engineered to possess an extremely tight range of surface resistance – meeting ESD-safe requirements of the most stringent manufacturers – while offering the same industry leading benefits that Onyx offers. In fact, it’s actually stronger and stiffer than Onyx with similarly impeccable surface finish, making it the go-to material for advanced applications.

Works with: Markforged X7, X5, X3.

Nylon (Composite Base)

Smooth engineering thermoplastic that can be easily painted or dyed.

Nylon is an unfilled thermoplastic. It’s a non-abrasive material that is great for ergonomic surfaces and workholding for pieces that are easily marred. It can be painted or dyed.

Works with: Markforged X7, Mark Two.

Carbon Fibre (Continuous Fibre)

The backbone of aluminium-strength composite parts.

Carbon Fibre is Markforged’s unique, ultra-high-strength Continuous Fibre, which – when laid into a Composite Base material like Onyx – can yield parts as strong as 6061-T6 Aluminium. It’s extremely stiff and strong, and can be automatically laid down in a wide variety of geometries by Markforged 3D printers.

Works with: Markforged X7, Mark Two.

Aramid Fibre (Kevlar® Continuous Fibre)

Tough, highly compliant Continuous Fiber for high-impact applications made with Dupont™ Kevlar® Fibre.

Aramid Fibre is a Kevlar® based, specialised Continuous Fibre known for its energy absorption and extreme toughness. When laid into Onyx or another Composite Base material, it yields extremely impact-resistant parts that are nearly immune to catastrophic failure (fracture). It’s perfect for use in parts that are in demanding environments or are subject to repetitive loading.

Works with: Markforged X7, Mark Two.

HSHT Fibreglass (Continuous Fibre)

Thermally resistant Continuous Fibre for strong parts in high-temperature environments.

High Strength High Temperature (HSHT) Fiberglass is defined by two characteristics: high strength (nearly equal to 6061-T6 Aluminium) and strength in high temperatures. Though not as stiff as Continuous Carbon Fibre, Onyx parts reinforced with HSHT are strong at both low and high temperatures. As a result, HSHT reinforcement is best used for parts in high-temperature environments like  moulds, autoclaves, and others.

Works with: Markforged X7, Mark Two.

Fibreglass (Continuous Fibre)

Entry-level Continuous Fibre for industrial applications.

Fibreglass is Markforged’s entry-level Continuous Fibre —a material capable of yielding parts 10x stronger than ABS when laid into a Composite Base material like Onyx. Fiberglass is the flagship material of the Onyx Pro and X5 and printable on the Mark Two and X7, providing a more affordable alternative to Carbon Fibre.

Works with: Markforged X7, X5, Mark Two. Onyx Pro.

Applications for your Markforged 3D Printer.

Jigs, fixtures & tooling

Jigs, fixtures & tooling

When you add a Markforged 3D Printer to your manufacturing facility you’ll be decreasing lead times and lowering your manufacturing costs. These amazing machines can be used to create everything from alignment jigs for welding tasks to soft jaws for work-holding, the only limit is your imagination.



Markforged 3D Printers use unique materials that are both strong and aesthetically pleasing. This means that, straight off the print bed, your prototype can be fully tested for form, fit and function without any further processing. This results in shortened development cycles, lower material waste and vastly decreased costs.

Finished parts

Finished parts

Every Markforged 3D Printer produces exceptionally strong parts with high accuracy and a fantastic surface finish, offering you a true alternative to traditionally manufactured low volume parts. It’s an extremely effective way to lower manufacturing costs to improve your company’s bottom line.

Case study: How Wärtsilä created the first CE-Certified lifting tool.

Wärtsilä is a global leader in smart technologies and complete lifecycle solutions for the marine and energy markets, with a portfolio of products that spans from engines to propulsion and renewable solutions.

The Finnish factory in Vaasa and Italian factory in Trieste oversee the manufacturing of large engines that power a third of the world’s largest cargo ships. The teams often need to fabricate tools to solve problems and optimise the efficiency of both the field and factories, and usually have to rely on third-party suppliers to manufacture them, but not anymore as this case study shows…

This 3D Printed tool is being used to lift engine pistons.
