Manufacturing reinvented

Manufacturing reinvented Capitalising on the benefits of 3D printing technology can drive down costs in manufacturing. With potentially limitless applications for plastic and metal printers modern manufacturing companies aren’t short of places to start. Throughout time, manufacturing companies have needed to adapt to survive and the 2020s are set to [...]

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 Carbon Fibre Drone Components Part 2

Writer’s Note: Last week we introduced the 3DR Iris+ drone upgrade project we were working on. This week, we’re diving into some of the modifications we had to make to the electrical system that make the upgrade with high strength 3D printed replacement parts possible. Follow along as our 3D printed carbon fibre drone becomes [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
