Metal 3D Printing Fundamentals
When metal 3D printing first rose in prominence it didn’t show enough value for most businesses to invest in the technology, but that has changed with recent innovations in additive technologies. Today, metal 3D printing is proving to be accessible, scalable, and robust. In this report, we’ll give you insights and break down the benefits of metal 3D printing. This paper will help you to get started on your metal additive manufacturing journey.

Our unique process
The X7 prints Composite Base filaments like a conventional FFF thermoplastic. Bases can be printed alone or reinforced with any of our composite reinforcement materials, including Carbon Fiber. Composite base materials are plastic based and can contain some volume of chopped carbon fiber.
Continuous Fiber Reinforcement
Only Markforged printers can lay down Continuous Fiber Reinforcement inside of parts through a second nozzle. These fibers cannot be printed alone and are used to reinforce parts printed out of a composite base material like Onyx.
