Markforged previously used the term “Success Plan” to refer to full product support, accidental damage coverage, and access to common consumable items.  Advanced software solutions or access to Markforged University required a separate purchase, potentially with a different renewal date, making it necessary to justify each of the critical resources individually.  Digital Forge Subscriptions bundle the success plan with advanced software capabilities and Markforged University to make billing easier and to provide all users with everything needed to be successful.

MLC CAD Systems provides Unbeatable Service for software, hardware, and materials from our team of experts.  This includes, including:

  • Expert diagnosis and troubleshooting from a team of experienced technicians, to save you time if there are questions.
  • Fast turnaround for replacement of wear and tear parts to safeguard the productivity of your machine
  • An annual visit for machine calibration (Industrial series only) which will ensure smooth operation throughout the life of your hardware.

If you have questions regarding how MLC CAD Systems delivers Unbeatable service, please contact your local MLC representative.
