Written by Adam Stegeman, 3D Printing Specialist
Markforged entered the market with a splash by launching the worlds first carbon fiber 3D printer in 2014. This was a revolutionary technology that is still leading the industry for high strength 3D printed parts. Now after more than two years, the technology has been recognized for its accomplishments. The Markforged Mark Two 3D printer received one of the highest accolades in the industry by 3D Printing Industry when it was awarded Enterprise 3D Printer of the Year (FFF/FDM). The 3D Printing Industry received more than 4,000 nominations for the various awards across 20 categories. Read the Press Release here.
The Mark Two touts many features that printers twice the cost do not offer. In a platform that fits on a desktop and has no special power or environmental requirements even the most novice individual can operate the system. The technology prints parts that are up to 20 times stronger than other plastic 3d printers by printing composite parts with continuous strands of carbon fiber. The Mark Two is also capable of printing in Kevlar, fiberglass or high strength fiberglass when additional property and part characteristics are desired. “In just one year, our Mark Two has become the de facto workhorse printer for professionals who want to quickly, cost-effectively print tools and functional parts.” said Greg Mark, CEO, Markforged. “It’s an honor to be recognized by the 3D printing community.”
In addition to the great results the printer can provide, the award winning printer is easy to interface with its proprietary Eiger software. Eiger lets engineers convert any STL file into a printable, fiber-reinforded model in seconds. With one click you can add fiber to the part and it will auto route for optimal strength based on the default settings. Now anyone can take the software for a spin to see how easy it is for themselves by signing up here to try out the software.
