Markforged is excited to announce its next generation of industrial-level printers. The FX10 is designed to be a machine that iterates and improves on what made the X7 such a capable turnkey 3D solution.

The mission statement of Hawk Ridge Systems has always been to discover and deliver world-class solutions for our customers. From digital design and simulation to full-scale manufacturing via 3D printing, each of our partners provides a comprehensive suite of tools that can help with many of the pain points involved in a product development cycle. Today, Hawk Ridge Systems is excited to announce a new partnership with Formlabs, an industry leader in both SLA (Stereolithography) and SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) Additive Manufacturing hardware.
In this blog post, we will delve into the Formlabs printers, materials, and software that are currently available
Even though FEA tools are a huge part of the product development cycle, they are very rarely used in conjunction with 3D printed parts. Variables such as layer heights, sparse infill geometries, and multiple-material builds make it extremely difficult or time-consuming to obtain accurate results using traditional simulation software.
This all changes today with the announcement of Markforged Simulation, a built-in FEA tool that can validate any Onyx or Carbon Fiber reinforced Onyx part uploaded to the Eiger slicing software.
At its core, the field of additive manufacturing is built around sustainability and lowering carbon footprint. 3D printed parts are typically created using only the media that is necessary to form geometry and printers such as the HP Multi Jet Fusion 5200 are even designed to print using mostly recycled material. With supply chain issues becoming increasingly prevalent, being efficient and sustainable is one of the top goals for many organizations. To assist with this, AMT has announced their FDA-approved and completely plant-based vapor smoothing solution, PostPro Pure.
Just like with any manufacturing process, there is no 3D printing material that fits the requirements for every single application. For example, some parts will require extreme strength to succeed in their application while others need high heat resistance. Further still, some parts may require the ability to bend and flex while maintaining chemical resistance to accomplish their intended function. To help with applications such as these, Markforged has added the new Smooth TPU 95A material to their Digital Forge. In this post, we will look at some properties of this new material and how you can use it to further take control of your supply chain.
