Markforged Metal X
An accessible end-to-end metal 3D printing solution designed to yield functional metal parts.
Based on Markforged’s 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, Markforged has eliminated the safety risks associated with traditional metal 3D printing while enabling new features like closed-cell infill for reduced part weight and cost.
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.
Your 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.
Now that they are comprised only of pure metal, your final parts are ready for their end use. They can be processed and treated just like any other metal parts.
A2 Tool Steel – Available Now
General purpose tool steel for cold-working applications.
D2 Tool Steel – Coming Soon
Impressive Hardness & Abrasion Resistance
D2 is a high carbon, high chromium, air-hardening tool steel. It was formulated to combine excellent abrasion resistance and air-hardening characteristics and has become the tool and die standard against which other tool steels are measured.
D2 tool steel is commonly used for long run tooling applications, where wear resistance is important, such as blanking or forming dies and thread rolling dies.
H13 Tool Steel – Available Now
Optimized for high temperature and wear
H-13 is a chromium, molybdenum, vanadium hot work tool steel which is characterized by high hardenability and excellent toughness. H-13 offers an excellent combination of shock and abrasion resistance, is capable of withstanding rapid cooling and resists premature heat checking.
Common applications include injection molds, dies and punches, forming tooling, and wear resistant inserts.
17-4PH Stainless Steel – Available Now
3D print metal more affordably than ever before
17-4PH Stainless Steel offers a valuable combination of high strength, good corrosion resistance and toughness in both base metals and welds gives designers opportunities to add reliability to their products while simplifying fabrication and often reducing costs.
Common applications include complex geometries, replacement parts, and corrosion resistant parts.
316L Stainless Steel – Coming Soon
Marine Grade Stainless Steel
Common applications include oil and petroleum refining equipment, aerospace structures and food processing equipment.
Titanium Ti-6Al-4V – Coming Soon
Ideal for light-weight applications
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. It is widely used in aerospace applications such as airframe components and turbine blades.
Inconel 625 – Coming Soon
Strong & Heat Resistant
Inconel’s strength combined with its impressive heat resistance makes it ideal for heat and pressure shielding applications. This Nickel-based super-alloy is commonly used in jet engines and medical applications, and is very hard to machine. It is also very chemically resistant.
Copper – Available Now!
Excellent Thermal & Electrical Conductivity
Known for its high thermal and electrical conductivity, ductility, and machinability, copper is widely used in heat exchanges and electrical and construction applications.
