Aerospace and Defence Division

A team dedicated to supporting the Aerospace and Defence industries whilst they evaluate and adopt the Digital Forge from Markforged


Experts predict the 3D printing marketing in Aerospace and Defence will increase 6 fold by 2030. Whilst this growth is impressive, we believe there are still many challenges facing adopters. Mark3D can help with choice of materials, fibre routing, part verification and testing. Mark3D also offer fully deployable 3D printing solutions to the UK MOD.
Mark3D Aerospace and Defence division has been specially set up to research, understand, and support these industries in overcoming adoption challenges.

The iAero Centre

Offering a unique environment in which talent, creativity, entrepreneurship and innovation within SMEs can flourish, the iAero Centre in Yeovil has proven to be the perfect setting for a new five-way collaboration between industry, education and local government.

The announcement of a 5 year joint funded agreement sees the team behind the £10m iAero project, led by Somerset County Council, bring together Leonardo UK, Markforged Inc, Yeovil College and Mark3D UK Limited to open and fully support a state-of-the-art additive manufacturing centre.

Austin Chick, Head of iAero, explains “one of the main aims of iAero is to provide an environment where new products and high value design and engineering solutions can be developed in collaboration with key industrial partners. Engineers from all over the West of England will be able to use this first-class facility to further develop ground breaking ideas and turn them into reality.”

Deployable 3D Printing

Take a look below to learn more about the NOMAD® Series, and the Field Edition Series from Markforged. See how they can help your organization exploit a digital supply chain. Prototyping and production of temporary spare parts has the potential of increasing your operability, as well as improving your existing product portfolio through rapid innovation.

These micro-factory’s in a box are developed to be operated at the most forward line of your daily operations. It’s now possible to perform low to medium volume production of polymer and composite components through industrial grade FDM printers.

Markforged X7 Field Edition

The X7 Field Edition is a ruggedized, field-deployable industrial 3D printer for tactical response to inventory challenges in remote locations. Increase supply chain resilience by printing tools, adapters, and replacement parts for equipment at the point of need. Recover faster when parts break, operate with less on-hand inventory, and minimize equipment downtime with flexible manufacturing. Enable engineers and operators to solve problems from the field, at a fraction of the cost, time,
and effort of having parts expedited from the other side
of the world.

Fieldmade NOMAD® LW

The NOMAD® LW Series enables in-field additive manufacturing of spare parts or technical components in real time. The NOMAD® Modules are transportable by air, sea and land, and operate fully self-sustained in extreme conditions. The Nomad® LW we see today is being used across many different applications and continues to be refined. It now includes specially configured sustainment packs that include enough materials and consumables to print for 3 months, along with all major spares. When units are returned to base the sustainment packs are replenished and made ready for the next trip.
