Laser Inspection

 

The Markforged X7, using its inbuilt lasers is capable of scanning the print bed to an accuracy of 1µm. When completed, this scan is used to generate a map of print bed which can be used to calibrate nozzle height and active topography. This is one of the ways that Markforged 3D printers ensure that your prints are exactly how you’d like them.

Prototypes

 

With the new functionality of the Markforged printers, it is now possible to immediately test your printed parts for fit & function, using materials that not only look good, but are strong too.

This means that prototypes have lower failure rates and your development cycles will be reduced greatly, saving you money, materials and time. See some examples below.

Jigs, Toolings & Fixtures

 

The applications for Markforged 3D printers are endless. Due to this, you can improve many of the tasks carried out during the processes of fabrication & manufacturing with custom parts.

You can expect to experience reduced costs of such processes alongside shorter lead times and increased machine bandwidth. This makes purchasing a Markforged 3D printer a very cost-effective decision.

End Use Parts

 

With the use of 3D printing, you can now manufacture end use parts as a viable alternative to manufacturing via traditional, more expensive methods.

Compared to the low volume techniques used previously, 3D printing is incredibly cost effective and will still produce strong, superbly finished parts ready for End Use. This will subsequently reduce your overall manufacturing costs.

Our store is a one-stop-shop for all of your 3D printing needs, including printers, materials like nylon and onyx, and even training courses. If you’re not sure a 3D printer is for you, we can send you 3D printed samples for your evaluation, completely free of charge.What’s more, we do our best to make our items as affordable as possible by offering discounts on select products. We also offer excellent finance plans that let you pay for your 3D printer in manageable instalments.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

How much does an industrial 3D printer cost?

The average price of an Industrial 3D printing machine can range from £16,000 – £150,000 and depends on build volume, materials and required finish.

3D Printing Metal can cost from £100,000 – £500,000 and again is very dependant upon the metal you want to use and the size of your prints.

Can you make money from 3D printing?

Commercial 3D printing can be a great way to make money. With a 3D printer, you can offer commercial 3D printing services and sell the models you create.

You can list 3D printing as a service on many websites and take orders online for the products that you print. If you do this, you can easily make back the Markforged 3D printer cost of your hardware when offering carbon fibre parts that outperform Aluminium.

Is a 3D printer worth it?

If you only want to print 3D models from time-to-time, it’s probably more cost-effective to use a 3D printing service instead. This way, you can get beautiful 3D printed items without having to buy a three-dimensional printer of your own.

However, buying a Markforged 3D printer isn’t a bad investment if you plan to use it regularly. Nowadays, 3D printers are more popular than ever before. You can easily get a high-quality one to use in your home at a reasonable Markforged 3D printer price.

How is metal 3D printed?

There are 2 main ways Metal is 3D Printed. The first involves using a traditional FDM process whereby the filament is 20% plastic and 80% metal. The part is printed and is usually 20% bigger than the finished item. The part is the but through a chemical wash called a de-binder and finally baked in a furnace where the parts shrink to the intended size and becomes solid.

The second method involves laying down layers of metal powder. A powerful laser then briefly melts & fuses these particles together to form a solid layer. More powder is then laid on top and the process is repeated until you end up with your solid part.

The different types of 3D printers

If you’re a beginner to 3D printing, you may be confused by the wide-ranging prices. To help you understand, here are the differences between 3D printers and the purposes that they serve:

  • Hobbyist 3D Printers

Hobbyist 3D printers are on the lower end of the price range. They are best suited for users who want to 3D print toys and prototypes for larger projects and are using them at home.

With a hobbyist printer, you will have a smaller-sized print bed and be limited to certain materials.

  • Professional 3D Printers

Designed with higher performance in mind, a professional three dimensional printer can create large, high-quality parts that a hobbyist printer simply can’t get close to with better surface resolution and a larger selection of materials.

  • Industrial 3D Printers

Industrial 3D printers can print large parts at very high quality, and they can do this quite at a rapid speed.

How much is a three dimensional printer with industrial level specs? You can expect to pay from £30,000 to £150,000 for one of these.

The Markforged 3 dimensional printer family

Markforged’s first 3D printer was the Mark One, which is considered the very first carbon fibre 3D printer in the world. Markforged 3D printing was then taken to the next level with the superior Mark Two.

The company has also released two specialised 3D printers in its Onyx series, which are designed to make use of the fantastic Onyx material.

As for industrial printers, Markforged is setting high standards with their Markforged X3 3d printer and others in their product line.

If you are keen on getting one of these Markforged printers for yourself or your company, look no further than Solid Print3D. We provide incredible deals on our Markforged carbon fiber 3D printer and other products.
