Markforged's Metal X 3D Printer Post-processing Equipment
Markforged Sinter - 1
A high performing, high value, medium-sized furnace, the Markforged Sinter-1 effortlessly converts brown (washed) parts into their near fully dense final metallic form. At 4,760 cubic cm of working volume, the Sinter-1 is ideal for small batch production.
Markforged Sinter - 2
A large furnace with a huge active hot-zone (19,644 cubic cm, 1,199 cubic in), the Markforged Sinter-2 is ideal for significant parts or batch production. Sinter a full range of commercial-grade metals from their washed state into dense metal parts.
Markforged Wash - 1
This washing station immerses the green part in a specialized fluid which removes the primary binding material, leaving the part semi-porous so the remaining binder can easily burn off during sintering. This debinding step purifies the final metal part and helps keep your sintering furnace clean.

Markforged 3D Printer Materials
3D Printer Composites
Markforged offers four reinforcement fibers: carbon fiber, fiberglass, HSHT fiberglass, and Kevlar. Composites are parts made up of more than one material that, when combined, have synergistic properties different from the original materials.
Carbon Fiber Filament
The strongest and stiffest fiber with the highest strength-to-weight ratio. Carbon fiber filament can replace aluminum at half the weight. Utilize this material when you want exceptional stiffness and minimal deflection.
Markforged Onyx FR
Achieves V-0 rating on the UL94 flammability test while possessing similar mechanical properties to Onyx. It’s best for 3D Printer applications in which flame retardancy, lightweight, and strength are required.
Markforged HSHT Fiberglass Filament
With the highest impact resistance and a flexural strength only second to carbon fiber, Markforged HSHT Fiberglass is ideal for 3D Printer applications requiring high heat resistance such as welding fixtures or thermoset molds.
Markforged Onyx Filament
Best in class for surface finish, chemical resistivity, and heat tolerance. Print Onyx alone or reinforce it with one of our continuous fibers to give strength comparable to aluminum.
Fiberglass is the perfect entry-level fiber for a Markforged 3D printer. It's low cost and 26x more rigid than nylon. Print parts that are an order of magnitude stiffer than typical 3D printed objects and produce functional prototypes, fixtures, jigs, and much more.
As stiff as fiberglass and much more malleable, Kevlar possesses excellent durability, making it optimal for parts that experience repeated and sudden loading. An excellent option for a wide range of applications such as end effectors, cradles, soft jaws, and end-use parts.
Markforged 3D Printer Metals
3D print easily and affordably with the superior properties of Markforged 3D Printers and advanced metals.
H13 Tool Steel
This steel works excellently in high temperature and can withstand extreme cooling. H13 tool steel also offers superior abrasion resistance and machinability that makes it ideal for molds and wear resistant pieces.
A2 Tool Steel
Regarded as a "universal" cold work steel that offers a combination of excellent wear resistance (between O1 and D2) and toughness.
Copper is a soft, malleable metal valued for its electrical and thermal conductivity. Ideally used for projects that require high conductivity, copper is the perfect material for heat sinks and heat exchangers, power distribution components, manufacturing equipment, and much more.
17-4 PH Stainless Steel
A high-strength, high-hardness metal with excellent corrosion resistance, this versatile steel excels in manufacturing, aerospace, petroleum, and medical industries. If heat treated, 17-4 PH Stainless Steel has an ultimate tensile strength of 1250 MPa and a Rockwell Hardness of 36 HRC.
Not only is this metal easy to print, but it is also extremely resistant to corrosion and is durable at high temperatures. Therefore, Inconel 625 is perfect for prototypes and end-use parts that are designed to sustain harsher environments.
