With Markforged being most widely known for their hardware and range of printable materials, it can be easy to forget that they are also heavily software-focused as a company. After all, their cloud-based Eiger slicing software is easy to use, scalable and is the only 3D printing slicer to obtain ISO/IEC 27001 security certification.
Over the past few years, Markforged has aimed to develop materials that open doors to new applications for their users. One such example is Onyx FR, a material capable of self-extinguishing at thicknesses of 3mm or greater.
Have you ever been curious about how to efficiently route fiber into Markforged 3D printed composite parts? In a previous blog called "How to Select the Correct Fiber for Your Markforged Application," we reviewed some real-world applications which make use of continuous fibers that Markforged printers can inlay into plastic parts. Today, we’ll be taking a look at some techniques that can be used to create more efficient and stronger fiber layouts.
Have you ever wanted to securely embed hardware and components inside your 3D printed parts? In some of our previous content, We’ve touched on how Markforged composite 3D printers allow users to pause their prints in progress in our previous blog, "6 Threading Options for Your Markforged 3D Printed Parts." In today's blog, we’ll be taking a deeper dive into this functionality and how you can use it to enhance your 3D prints!
