  • 5 inch colour touchscreen
  • Heated print chamber
  • Closed cell infill reduces part weight and cost
  • Dual nozzles – print both metal material and ceramic release material
  • Up to 10x less expensive than alternative metal additive manufacturing technologies
  • Safer and more accessible than traditional machining or metal casting
  • Components are designed to be easily replaceable and swappable – easy to interchange nozzles, print sheets and brushes
  • 17-4 PH Stainless Steel
  • H13 Tool Steel
  • A2 and D2 Tool Steel
  • Inconel 625
  • Copper
  • Release material: ceramic (becomes powder during Sintering Process)

Following the metal printing process, parts must be washed using a solvent based debinding system and then sintered in a tube furnace to remove the ceramic release material. Markforged has developed the Wash-1 and Sinter-1/Sinter-2 machines for metal print post-processing.

  • Eiger Cloud (Slicer, Part/Build Management)
  • Security (Two-Factor Authentication/Single Sign-On)
