3D printed shock absorber using Onyx as the print material

As you’ve seen from a few of our previous posts, every Friday we see what interesting things our creative employees have made at Part of the Week. Since the recent launch of our new Onyx filament, our applications team has been testing the limits of this industrial strength 3D printing material and discovering new ways to [...]

3D printed and carbon fibre reinforced backpack mount

One of the best parts about working for an industrial strength 3D printing company is that you always have access to create strong and functional parts whenever an idea strikes. Over the past two years, there’s been a sharp rise in the prevalence of functional 3D printed parts showing up in our employees’ lives – [...]

3D Printed Spare Parts for a Go Kart

Today, we embark on a new challenge: re-imagining this go-kart in 3D printed carbon fibre. This adventure is designed to push the limits of 3D printing. From the steering wheel to the steering knuckles, we will be removing individual components from the kart, modeling them in CAD, printing them on our Mark Two 3D printers, [...]

3D printing of a carbon fibre drone Part 1

There’s more than a few quadcopter and drone enthusiasts at Markforged, which is why we’re excited to share an internal application we’ve been building for the last month. We’re upgrading an IRIS+ quadcopter from 3DRobotics with carbon fibre-reinforced 3D printed components that are both lighter and stronger than the original parts, to see how high [...]

3D printed and Kevlar reinforced abrasion protection for Skateboards

Skateboarding is a rough sport, on both the rider and the board. Both longboards (a subset of longer skateboards) and street skateboards (the type you’re probably used to seeing) suffer from edges splitting on impact as well as a phenomenon called “razor tail.” Razor tail happens because the kick tails (the two ends of the [...]

How to reinforce a 3D printed saw using Carbon Fibre

Let’s “Cut to the chase” – the Markforged Mark Two 3D printer can print incredibly strong carbon fibre parts. Whether it is for space applications, search and rescue, or simply a need for tools and fixtures, this lightweight, carbon fibre hacksaw is a testament to what can be accomplished on the Mark Two. At Markforged [...]

How to reinforce thin walls with fibre

Markforged composite filaments, such as carbon fibre, have incredible properties, and can add high strength and stiffness to many 3D printed parts. Like all manufacturing processes, however, composite-reinforced 3D printing is better suited for certain applications which can leverage the advantages of the specific process. In CNC machining operations, for example, a square end mill [...]
