Featuring the unique dual nozzle print system, the X5 unlocks the ability to weave a strand of Continuous Fiberglass throughout a part to make it as strong as metal. Add that to the all-aluminum unibody enclosure, ultra-flat gantry system, machined aluminum stage with kinematic bed coupling, motor encoders and calibration laser, and tie it all together with software.
The Markforged X5 leverages fiberglass reinforced thermoplastic to create parts 10x as strong as standard printing plastics. Easily upgradable to the X7, the X5 is a laser assisted, durably built large format machine designed to reliably produce high strength parts in any environment at an affordable price point.
ultimate tensile strength
Internal Part Geometry
Nylon mixed with chopped carbon fiber offers a high-strength thermoplastic
Designed to combine the toughness and durability of Nylon with the dimensional stability and strength of composites, Onyx is the world’s most capable 3D printing plastic.
ONYX FR (Flame Retardant)
V-0 rated nylon filled with chopped carbon fiber designed for strong, lightweight, flame-retardant parts
Onyx FR should be used to print parts that need high-strength, low-weight, and flame-retardant properties. Such applications include: aerospace, automotive parts, and electronic housings.
Inexpensive and 11 times stiffer than ABS
Fiberglass reinforced Onyx composites are as strong as metal – 20x stiffer and stronger than typical 3D printed parts. Fiberglass is traditionally used in composites for boat, automobile, and aircraft manufacture.
