Robust Production of High-Strength, Lightweight 3D Printed Parts
The FX20 brings you a new class of industrial printing systems capable of high-temperature materials – such as Ultem – at larger build volumes and higher accuracies than ever before. Parts you build on this system can withstand high heat, flame, and harsh chemicals found in the most demanding applications. The FX20 also uses the Continuous Fiber Reinforcement (CFR) printing technique unique to Markforged to dramatically increase part strength, providing metal-like strength straight off your machine.
The FX20 is the largest printer available from Markforged. With a print volume 5x larger than any other printer, you can bring the high strength of CFR 3D printing to your largest parts.
The Markforged FX20 is expected to be ready for shipment in the first half of 2022.
KEY FEATURES & MATERIALS
Continuous Fiber Reinforcement
Create parts with aluminum-like strength by reinforcing plastic parts with
High Temperature Thermoplastics
200°C temperature capabilities open the door for high-temperature
thermoplastics like Ultem.
Large Industrial Print Spools
3200CC print spools are available for longer, larger prints compared to
800CC spools in other Markforged printing systems.
Heated Build Chamber
The printer build chamber is heated to accommodate high-temperature
Integrated Material Storage
Store and use multiple spools in the materials cabinet.

ULTEM 9085 and ULTEM Support
This production-grade thermoplastic material is flame retardant. It’s high
strength-to-weight ratio and FST rating make it ideal for aerospace,
automotive, medical, and military applications.
This flexible, soft material that has a less abrasive finish, ideal for
non-marring work holding applications. This material also can be
reinforced with fiber for high-strength applications. Nylon is white in
Onyx is a nylon / chopped carbon fiber mix material that is stronger than
standard nylon with a black color and excellent surface finish.
This flame-retardant version of Onyx is UL94 V-0 rated
(self-extinguishing) and great for applications requiring non-flammable
parts. Onyx FR is black in color.
This electrostatic dissipative material is perfect for protecting
electronics. This material is also the strongest plastic that Markforged
has to offer. Onyx ESD is black in color.
The most affordable fiber that will reinforce your parts and still achieve
significant rigidity improvements.
This strong fiber has the highest heat deflection temperature of any
Markforged fiber, making it perfect for high-temperature applications.
Create parts stronger than aluminum utilizing the highest tensile strength
fiber that Markforged has to offer.
This impact-resistant fiber with a higher elongation to break is perfect
for applications with sudden high loads.

TOP-RANKED SUPPORT, COMMITTED TO YOUR SUCCESS
When your system needs a little TLC, we offer both online or on-site technical support. Our certified Technicians and Applications Engineers are available to help troubleshoot and work with you on challenging parts.
You will need to keep the printer clean, and you will occasionally need to
tension the belts, change the upper and lower feed tubes, and change the
Are there different infill patterns
that can be selected?
Yes, you can choose between triangular, gyroid, and solid infill.
Does the Metal X require
The Metal X printer itself does not require ventilation, but the other two
machines in the system, the Wash-1 and Sinter-1 or Sinter-2 all require
What is the difference between the
Sinter-1 and Sinter-2
The Sinter-1 is smaller, and does not have stackable seter plates, both of
which limit the part size and number of parts you can fit in each run. The
Sinter-2, aside from being much larger, also has the ability to do express
runs for producing smaller volumes of parts in an expedited timeframe
What is included in the Metal X
The Metal X system includes the Metal X 3D printer, the Wash-1, and either
the Sinter-1 or Sinter-2.
How long does the wash and sinter
While this will vary based on print settings, part geometry, and material,
the wash process takes around 12 hours, the drying process takes around 4
hours, and the sintering process takes around 27 hours. Keep in mind that
multiple parts can be processed per cycle in that time frame.
Is the bed or chamber heated on the
Yes. To ensure that the bound metal material is printable, both the
chamber and the bed of the Metal X are heated.
Do the Sinter-1 and Sinter-2 have
Yes, both furnaces will consume ultra-high purity argon gas from either a
CLC/Dewar or a cylinder multi pack, hydrogen/argon mix gas from cylinders,
exhaust filters, and gas supply filters.
Are the metal materials dangerous?
No. Unlike other powder-based metal 3d printers, the Metal X uses a
polymer and wax bound metal powder which eliminates any hazard that this
material might pose.
