Markforged Metal X5 3D Printer Capabilities
Power your production cycle with the X5. The X5 delivers the capability to replace costly and time-consuming machining processes in a low-cost manner. The difference between the two industrial printers is with the print materials they are capable of using. While the X3 can only print Onyx, the X5 can additionally print with fiberglass. If your parts require exceptional durability, then fiberglass is the perfect material for you. Fiberglass creates parts 26 times stiffer than nylon and 11 times more rigid than ABS. As an ideal entry-level 3D printing material, fiberglass is a low-cost option that can surpass strength levels of 6061 aluminum.
Markforged Metal X5 3D Printer Features
The standard options available for the X3 are also available for the X5. With the same build volume as the X3 of 330 x 270 x 200mm, the X5 is perfect for a production floor environment. Cloud-connected software and a 4.3” touchscreen come standard with every Markforged printer. With automatic version control, real-time fleet management, and cloud-based collaboration, Markforged's own 3D printing software, Eiger, is one of the best software platforms of its type on the market. Additionally, laser bed leveling is supplied, allowing precision to just 1 micron in the z axis, and an advanced sensor suite provides unparalleled reliability. Add to that an ultra-flat gantry system and a machined aluminum stage with kinematic bed coupling, the X5 nails the sweet spot of strength and affordability.
Onyx ESD is a static-dissipative chopped carbon fiber nylon material, precision-engineered for a tight range of surface resistance. Onyx ESD meets ESD-safe requirements while offering the same industry-leading print quality of Onyx.
Fiberglass reinforced Onyx composites are as strong as metal and 20x stiffer than typical 3D printed parts. Onyx FR should be used to print parts that require high-strength, low-weight, and flame-retardant properties.
Precise PLA is our easy-to-print plastic for precision concept modeling and validation. Precise PLA 3D prints without warping and comes in a variety of colors. Best of all, it’s affordable.
SMOOTH TPU 95A
Smooth TPU 95A is a rubber-like material that when used with Markforged composite printers offers product developers and manufacturers the ability to create flexible, impact-absorbent parts on demand.
Continuous Fiber Compatibility
Fiberglass is the perfect entry-level fiber for 3D printing. 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.
Additive Manufacturing Savings
Use your CNC resources for only the most critical machining operations. Increase machining bandwidth by 3D printing composite-reinforced soft jaws and custom work-holding tools with the strength necessary for heavy duty machining operations.
Typical Machined Cost: $ 721.70
Markforged 3D Printed Cost: $ 116.04
Print better locating fixtures for complex welding operations. Reinforcing fibers distribute clamping forces evenly across custom geometries, making these fixtures more effective than general use solutions and more affordable than custom machined setups.
