Need to make strong parts?
Radically reduce the time from prototype to market
Markforged desktop printers are great addition to any makerspace for producing strong and high quality parts. Markforged printers use Onyx which is 1.4 times stronger and stiffer than ABS and if you need your parts even stronger continuous carbon fiber can be printed in long strands, creating composite parts many times stronger and stiffer than Onyx.

What our experts recommend
What is a makerspace?
A makerspace is a collaborative work space inside a school, library or separate public/private facility for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools.
Who would use a makerspace?
Makerspaces can be used by anyone but typically creative business’s, students, entrepreneurs and school children for making, collaborating, learning and sharing.
What makes a space a makerspace?
If a makerspace sounds to you like a co-working space or a tech incubator, they’re similar, but not quite the same. A makerspace is about more than just being in the same space with other creators. It’s about having access to the specialised tools and talent required to build the thing you want to create — and then taking advantage of those tools and talent to actually do it.
How are Makerspaces being used for start-ups?
Should you need a 3D printer to build a prototype? You’re likely to find one at a local makerspace.
Looking for an engineer to draw up plans for your new idea? There’s probably one right down the hall from you there.
