Markforged X5 3D Printer
Now you can 3D print fiberglass parts faster and cheaper than machining. For load-bearing applications that require real strength, these parts make the grade.
20x Stronger Parts
20x stronger and 10x stiffer than ABS. For applications where weak doesn’t cut it, these parts are perfect for a wide variety of tooling, fixtures, and functional prototypes.
Fast & Affordable
Replace mission critical machined aluminum with fiberglass 3D printed composite parts at 1/20th the cost. These tough parts nail the sweet spot of strength and affordability.
Keep your production line running at full speed. Reduce lead time and cost on end effectors by printing on-site same day tooling. Print new tools and functional replacements for old parts. Save time and money with carbon fiber 3D printing.
Use your CNC resources for only the most critical machining operations. Increase machining bandwidth by 3D printing composite-reinforced soft jaws and custom work-holding tools with the strength necessary for heavy duty machining operations.
Print better locating fixtures for complex welding operations. Reinforcing fibers distribute clamping forces evenly across custom geometries, making these fixtures more effective than general use solutions and more affordable than custom machined setups.
3D print custom fixturing for your QA rooms. Print standalone workholding to eliminate the need for complicated setups. Certify more parts in less time with cost effective, minimal effort fixtures.

Markforged X5 – Tech Specs
Featuring the unique dual nozzle print system, the X5 unlocks the ability to weave a strand of continuous fiberglass throughout a part to make it as strong as metal. Add that to the all-aluminum unibody enclosure, ultra-flat gantry system, machined aluminum stage with kinematic bed coupling, motor encoders and calibration laser, and tie it all together with software.

FFF & CFF
Designed to combine the toughness and durability of Nylon with the dimensional stability and strength of composites, Onyx is the world’s most capable 3D printing plastic.
Fiberglass reinforced Onyx composites are as strong as metal — 20x stiffer and stronger than typical 3D printed parts. The Markforged X5 is a 3D fiberglass printer that combines unparalleled material strength, amazing production speed and optimized efficiency into a unique solution that saves our customers money.
Continuous Filament Fabrication
Formed from the combination of two materials, composite parts are incredibly strong and versatile. Our unique fabrication process enables you to print parts that are an order of magnitude stiffer and stronger than typical 3D printed objects.
CAD your part, upload the STL, and select from composite materials such as Carbon Fiber, Fiberglass or Kevlar. The cloud-based software does the rest making printing the right part easy.
The dual material system crafts the composite part one layer at a time. The first nozzle builds the plastic matrix and the second winds the fiber throughout.
As strong as aircraft grade aluminum and over 40% lighter, Markforged CFF parts are more than capable of replacing machined metal tools, fixtures and prototypes.
With a built-in laser micrometer, the X5 3D plastic printer automatically scans the print bed with 1µm accuracy to generate a contour map of its surface. By calibrating its measurements with extrusion readings to perfectly set nozzle height and active topography adjustment, the X5 ensures your prints come out exactly how you want them.
Cloud-connected software and a 4.3” touchscreen comes standard with every printer, washer and furnace. Regular over-the-air updates mean that your Markforged products keep getting better. Material usage tracking and out-of-material detection help monitor your printers and reduce waste. Just a few of the ways we’re working to reduce the distance from design to part.

Thermally resistant Continuous Fiber for strong parts in high-temperature environments
High Strength High Temperature (HSHT) Fiberglass is defined by two characteristics: high strength (nearly equal to 6061-T6 Aluminum) and strength in high temperatures. Though not as stiff as Continuous Carbon Fiber, Onyx parts reinforced with HSHT are strong at both low and high temperatures. As a result, HSHT reinforcement is best used for parts in high-temperature environments like molds, autoclaves, and others.
