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.

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.

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.

Aramid Fiber (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.

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.

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.

Markforged Industrial vs. Desktop Composite 3D Printers. What's the difference?

As you can see the Industrial Series 3D Printer range from Markforged offers a large build envelope with superior accuracy, resolution and speed across a wide range of materials.

The Desktop Series, on the other hand provides users with a fantastic way to get started with professional quality parts, with a good surface finish using standard materials.

Take a look at this datasheet for a full comparison between the full range of Desktop and Industrial printers to see what each type of 3D Printer is capable of.

Case study: Markforged Industrial 3D Printers at the Siemens Innovation Centre.

The Siemens Innovation Centre is a one-of-a-kind facility which offers a unique pairing of design with manufacturing, implementing robotics, rapid prototyping, scanning, digital tools, and on-site additive manufacturing. It was opened by Siemens Energy to provide rapid problem-solving in support of its energy operations.

Engineers at the Siemens Innovation Centre were tasked to improve turbine maintenance by reducing off-site repairs and costly downtime. The team designed and 3D printed a circular saw-inspired cutback tool using their fleet of Markforged X7 printers within 4 weeks.

When they realised that the Markforged carbon fibre material was actually robust enough to withstand field use, they started to put the tool into production! Watch the video to find out more…
