Quality Assurance Software for the Markforged Industrial Series

Seamlessly integrated into the production process, Inspection enables laser scanning while parts print, streamlining part design, production, and quality control. Included in the Digital Forge Complete Advanced Plan, Inspection offers rapid quality control via automated scanning and inspection as parts print, allowing immediate usage.

Compatible with X3™, X5™, and X7™ Industrial printers, Inspection ensures precise, compliant parts are delivered quickly, eliminating the need for expensive and time-consuming post-print inspections. With detailed process control data, users can track the printing process, including who printed the parts when they were printed, and which printer/software version was used, enhancing transparency and accountability.

Key Features & Benefits

Point Cloud Accuracy Verification

Compare printed geometries to CAD data with an interactive point cloud verification tool which allows for filtering based on dimensional accuracy thresholds and scan resolution settings.

In-Depth Part Inspection

Understand feature relationships including perpendicularity, hole size, planar deviation, hole centerline distances, and much more.

Scan Reports

Download scan reports containing build details including print settings, machine information, part data, and scan point distribution information. This feature adds traceability to the scan process.

Scan History

View previous print scans of a part file and track improvements to accuracy over time.

Enhanced Part Performance

Utilizing advanced AI-powered algorithms to analyze and optimize part designs automatically.

Reduced Material Waste

This not only helps to minimize costs but also contributes to sustainability efforts by conserving resources and reducing environmental impact.

Revolutionizing Dragsters With Markforged

In the high-speed, high-stakes world of jet engine drag racing, manufacturing quality parts is a matter of life and death. Just ask Josette Roach, one of only five female jet dragster drivers in the entire world.

Josette Roach and Brian Tocci of Larsen Motorsports saw the need to create a custom steering wheel for Josette’s jet car that would fit her hands exactly. Enter Markforged, and our Simulation software, which allowed the team at Larsen to build this part with top-end accuracy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Inspection increase the accuracy of my machine?

Not at this time. Inspection is currently a verification tool that will provide an accuracy report.

What should I expect in the future from Inspection?

Inspection is designed for Adaptive Manufacturing which will use AI to improve printer accuracy for specific part geometries based on scan data.

How can I purchase and install Inspection on my machine?

Inspection can only be enabled on Industrial machines after the system has been calibrated using an external calibration board artifact. Reach out to Hawk Ridge Systems to order a calibration board and sign up for a subscription.

What is the print workflow when using Inspection?

After your machine has been calibrated, you are able to turn on Inspection for individual part files within Eiger. As the part is being printed, the machine will scan layer by layer, creating a point cloud that will be compared to your original STL data. Lastly, you will receive a notification once your part and scan report are complete and ready for download.

Can I do custom inspections with the scan data?

Yes. Inspection allows for closer inspection of scan data, filtering based on accuracy thresholds, and comparative analysis from different surfaces and planes.

Which machines can I install Inspection on?

Inspection is only available on the Markforged industrial line of printers.
