Fire Resistant and Expert Performance
Carbon Fiber FR-A is a flame retardant fiber that is used to reinforce and strengthen parts printed on the Markforged X7. It has been specially designed to be used in aerospace engineering, it has improved durability and usability in the printing process allows parts to experience greater strains resulting from atmospheric pressures changes.
The Carbon Fiber FR-A is only compatible with the Onyx Fr-A.
The workflow of using the material and printing with it has had careful consideration. Designs are easy to alter and upload to the Markforged printers due to the usability of the online slicing software, Eiger. Implementing highly precise quality control methods can now be done through an AI software, Markforged Blacksmith. The software completes real-time quality checks and alters the printers settings accordingly.
