3D printing of light and durable, strong and geometrically precise composites is capable of replacing the lengthy production of aluminum machining in certain cases. Classic desktop FDM printing offers an affordable solution for the realization of your ideas. One of the many advantages is the wide range of material types. From flexible to materials with additives such as wood, bronze and others.
On the Markforge X7 3D printer, it is possible to insert various types of fiber as reinforcement into the applied Onyx solid material Matrix. Tough Onyx can be reinforced with carbon, Kevlar or fiberglass. Markforge X7 offers an alternative approach to the production of machined parts from aluminum alloys, especially in the form of less time-consuming production and less weight of prototypes.
