The adaptive manufacturing platform that connects part design, production, and inspection with a powerful AI.

Blacksmith Launch Video
Blacksmith for X7


Blacksmith for X7 establishes and streamlines the quality
control process for additively manufactured parts. Get to
market faster with confidence in your parts. By scanning
parts while they print, the X7 is the only industrial-grade
FFF 3D printer with in-process part verification.

Breakthrough adaptive manufacturing technology will massively cut waste and accelerate time to market.

The Future of


Closed Loop

Blacksmith will enable Markforged 3D printers to account for all variables that can affect a part through closed-loop processing - changing how future parts are printed based on scans of previous prints.


Adaptive manufacturing technology will expand beyond the X7, enabling corrective actions from Metal and Composite printers.

Fleet Insights in
Every print

As Blacksmith leverages federated learning with the world’s largest fleet of connected 3D printers. Manufacturers will be able to print the right part every time bringing resiliency and agility to their supply chains.

How It


1. Calibrate Machine

The onboard laser micrometer scans an OEM certified artifact to field calibrate the X7, enabling unparalleled printer consistency and scan accuracy.

2. Print and Scan Part

As you slice a part, Eiger’s patented intelligent scanning algorithm creates an integrated scan toolpath. The X7 scans the part while printing and creates a point cloud of dimensional data.

3. Analyze Data

Blacksmith compares the point cloud measured during printing to the design file, generating a detailed error field for the part and overlaying it on the initial STL.

4. Generate Report

Eiger presents this error field in an easily parsable online report. Using these tools, you can set tolerance limits, compare different prints of the same part, and browse a centralized scan library of print quality data.
