The Best 3D Printer For Working Prototypes and End-Use Parts

Buying a 3D Printer requires thorough decision making, as each machine has its own capabilities and limitations. Before buying one, you should ask yourself about the mechanical properties that are required for your project.

People usually use 3D printed parts for aesthetic purposes. However, if you want to print low volume production parts, prototypes, or jigs and fixtures, you should be careful in choosing a 3D printer.

When creating working prototypes and end-use parts, the Markforged Mark Two 3D printer is ideal. This is an FDM printer suitable for 3D printing a wide variety of objects, allowing you to 3D Print parts that outperform Aluminium.

Just ensure that you follow the settings and guide provided by the  manufacturer properly when using such equipment.

It is also important that you know the different kinds of filaments used for 3D printing, as well as the capacity of the machine to handle such materials. For instance, choosing cheap 3D printers will only melt plastic filaments.

The Markforged Mark 2 uses specialist filament as it’s base materials produced in-house by Markforged to ensure seamless 3D printing. You can choose from a Nylon which emphasizes durability or Onyx (a Carbon Fibre particle infused Nylon) which adds some stiffness.

Where Markforged differ however it the addition of a Continuous Fibre between the layers of Nylon or Onyx. This can increase the strength of your part by 14x.

With Markforged Mark Two produces carbon fibre parts, which are much lighter, cheaper, and stronger than aluminium materials.

Major Things To Know About Markforged Mark Two

Markforged Mk2, the second generation of the Markforged Mark One printer, is an improved 3D printer for powerful materials like carbon fibre and fibreglass. This new machine was born out of customer feedback since the launching of its first-generation 3D printer.

The Markforged Two printer can lay down fibre reinforcement materials 15 times smaller and work 40% faster than before, with incremental improvements in its software and hardware.

For the 3D printing process, this machine uses two print heads: one that builds the matrix material, nylon, and a second one which lays those parts with fibreglass or carbon fibre.

Its print bed allows you to pause printing whenever necessary, remove the bed and put in more components, then click the bed back in. This way, you can continue with the process, all while the print stays in the exact position.

The printer also comes with Eiger, a Markforged browser-based 3D printing software. Thanks to this software, its strength can be optimised by putting the reinforcement material in the best position.

3D printing machines are truly a powerful tool that can be used for new inventions, not to mention, the Markforged Mark 2 price is truly reasonable for any type of business. This new technology will greatly benefit a lot of important industries, particularly robotics and healthcare.

The Use Of Markforged Mark Two 3D Printer In The Robotics Industry

The robotics industry is constantly changing, and it is always needed in all kinds of fieldwork. For instance, media and arts need creative RoboThespians and Socibots. Museums and other world-class attractions also need innovative robotic solutions.

The methodologies for creating such robots don’t need to be stagnant, no matter how effective the current process is. For the betterment of the robotics industry, some engineers have invested in 3D printing.

By using the Markforged Mark Two three dimensional printer, engineers can take advantage of its ‘Fused Deposition Modelling’ or FDM, a method that involves a fancy hot glue gun to print layers of melted materials.

FDM allows engineers to change the properties of the parts easily by using additives like carbon fibre, kevlar, or fibreglass to the basic nylons. Thanks to this, the parts can withstand extreme environments and various elements.

3D Printing In The Healthcare Industry – How Does It Save Lives?

3D printing has paved its way into the field of medical research and will help in the creation of artificial tissues and organs.

While there are a lot of labs producing artificial tissues, it is hard for them to keep the cells alive as they need oxygen and nutrients to survive. Because of this, engineers and other professionals choose to design customised multi-vascular structures of 3D printed organs.

By using a 3D printing machine, along with efficient cell-culturing techniques and bioengineering, professionals have successfully created multi-vascular structures that were materialised in soft hydrogels.

These hydrogels can serve as lung-like networks, with entangled vessel networks that allow blood and airflow through and helping the living tissues to survive.
