Part 1 of 3: How To Get Started with MarkedForge Mark One 3D Printer 0

You have a vision. You have a Mark One 3D printer. You created a CAD model of your design. Now what?

Eiger is MarkForged’s web-based printing software that lets you upload, clone and manipulate your STL files before wirelessly sending them to your printer. All your designs live in a secure, cloud-based digital library so your work is available anytime, anywhere. The lightweight slicing software allows you to group designs together to print entire projects with ease or share and edit your work with colleagues.

See the Mark One in Action at the Design-2-Part Trade Show 0

Like a fine wine, the Design-2-Part show keeps getting better with age. For over 40 years, this manufacturing and engineering trade show has brought industry leaders together to innovate and create. And this year, we’ll be there. On June 10-11, top-tier manufacturers and suppliers will convene at the Minneapolis Convention Center for the largest industry tradeshow in America. Our team will show off the MarkForged Mark One’s revolutionary, new Composite Filament Fabrication ™ (CFF™) 3D printing process.

MarkForged Composite Filament Fabrication: The 3D Printer for Perfectionists 0

What do space shuttles, rockets, and Formula 1 cars all have in common aside from being incredibly fast and cool? Yup – you got it. They’re all reinforced with long strands of composite fibers like those used in the revolutionary Composite Filament Fabrication™ (CFF™) 3D printing process.

The MarkForged Mark One: 3D Printing the World’s Strongest Parts 0

In today’s blog post, we want to talk about synthetics, strength and savings, and specifically, about some of the newest, most advanced materials used in modern manufacturing: carbon fiber, Kevlar, fiberglass, and nylon filaments used to create fiber-reinforced composite parts.

For years now, we’ve been hearing that once 3D printing technology matures, once it’s more capable, more flexible, more affordable, it will be a brave new world that will revolutionize whole spheres of economic activity and daily life, from education to manufacturing to entertainment.  And so we’ve waited, and waited – and the technology has steadily, if not spectacularly, grown up. It has achieved its milestones in margins, rather than leaps and bounds, and it appears that its promised effect on how we live and do business will unfold in the same dogged, piecemeal fashion.  If anything, 3D printing this is an incremental revolution, with progress persistently carved from the technology’s pure potential.
