Affordable Metal 3D Printing
The Metal X is up to 10x less expensive than alternative metal additive manufacturing technologies — and up to a 100x less than traditional fabrication technologies like machining or casting.
Manufacturing Made Easy
Our cloud-based printer management software, built-in touchscreen interface and automatic material tracking make the Metal X system the simplest way to manufacture metal parts.

hardware

metal x

Based on our 4th generation composite 3D printing technology, the Metal X is a brand new kind of 3D printer. By printing metal powder bound in a plastic matrix, we've eliminated the safety risks associated with traditional metal 3D printing while enabling new features like closed-cell infill for reduced part weight and cost.

Design
CAD your part, upload the STL, and select from a wide range of metals. The Eiger software does the rest making printing the right part easy.
Print
Metal powder bound in plastic is printed a layer at a time into the shape of your part. Parts are scaled up to compensate for shrinkage during the sintering process.
Sinter
Printed parts go through a washing stage to remove some of the binder. They are then sintered in a furnace and the metal powder fuses into solid metal.
Part
Pure metal and up to 99.7% dense, the final parts are ready for use. They can be processed and treated just like any other metal parts.

Stainless Steel

17-4 & 316L

17-4 stainless steel combines high strength, corrosion resistance, and hardness, making it widely used in aerospace, medical and petroleum industries. We use it for assembly fixtures and tooling on the Mark X.

Also known as marine grade stainless steel, 316L stainless steel exhibits very good corrosion resistance and excellent weldability.

Aluminum beta

6061 & 7075

As a general purpose aluminum, 6061 combines good machinability, strength, and weldability. It can additionally be anodized with a good finish. We use it for many of the machined components in the Mark X.

7075 Aluminum is one of the strongest aluminum alloys. With good fatigue strength and a high strength-to-weight ratio, this alloy is stronger than common structural steels (A36, 1018). We use it on the kinematic coupling in the bed of the Mark X. It's also common in aerospace and automotive racing.

Tool Steelbeta

A-2 & D-2

A-2 tool steel is air-hardened with excellent impact resistance. We use it for punches, dies, and form tooling on the Mark X. 

The high carbon and chromium content of D-2 tool steel provides great hardness and abrasion resistance (but not as tough as A-2). D-2 is often used for cutting tools.

Inconelbeta

IN Alloy 625

Inconel's strength combined with its impressive heat resistance makes it ideal for heat and pressure shielding applications. This Nickel-based superalloy is commonly used in jet engines and medical applications, and is very hard to machine.  It is also very chemically resistant.

print with

Titaniumbeta

Ti-6Al-4V

Bearing the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal, Titanium 6-4 is ideal for lightweight applications and has both high tensile strength and fatigue resistance. This bio-compatible material is widely used in medical applications such as orthopedic joint replacements.

furnace

sinter-1

The Markforged Sinter-1 is a high performing, high value furnace - it’s affordable, sizable, and reliable. Featuring 4760 cubic cm of working volume, The Sinter-1 effortlessly converts brown (washed) parts into their near fully dense final metallic form. Built on 30 years of Metal Injection Molding (MIM) technology, it is ideal for sintering medium sized parts and small batch production.

furnace

sinter-2

With a huge active hot-zone (22,283 cubic cm), the Sinter-2 fits the full build volume of the Metal X. It’s the perfect solution for larger parts or batch production. This workhorse furnace sinters the full range of commercial grade metals from their green (as-printed) state into fully dense metal parts.

Furnace Dimensions

washing station

Wash-1

The Wash-1 immerses the green part in a specialized fluid which removes the primary binding material, leaving the part semi-porous so the remaining binder can easily burn off during sintering. This debinding step purifies the final metal part and helps keep your sintering furnace clean.
