In case you missed it, Markforged has updated its 3D Printing Design Guides for both Carbon Fiber and Metal printing applications. They are packed with great information to help plan for your next 3D printing project with either metal or carbon fiber materials.
Make your manufacturing and product development operations run more efficiently with metal 3D printing. Metal 3D printing introduces a unique and groundbreaking method to additively manufacture metal parts. Until recently, the technology was too immature to broadly utilize in manufacturing — however, advancement in the last five years has transformed metal 3D printing into a scalable, robust solution. Implementing this technology effectively can transform your business.
Due to its newness and the excitement surrounding it, metal 3D printing is a complex field with many
misconceptions and a wide variety of technologies. In this guide, we’ll help you cut through the noise by
detailing why metal 3D printing is valuable, what technologies and materials are out there, and how you can take the first steps in adopting metal 3D printing in your own facility.
In this guide, you’ll learn about:
• The business benefits and technical advantages of using metal 3D printers.
• Types of printers and groups of printable materials available today.
• The four key application spaces of metal 3D printing.
• How to calculate ROI for a metal 3D printer, both financially and through process improvement.
• Three ways to adapt your business to be successful with metal 3D printers.
While carbon fiber 3D printing has been around for the better part of a decade, it has rapidly risen to prominence in the last few years. Today, many incumbent 3D printer manufacturers are rushing to capitalize on the term “carbon fiber 3D printing” but not all carbon fiber is created equal. This white paper covers the basics of carbon fiber in the 3D printing space — where we’ll define the different
types, examine the challenges, benefits, implementation considerations, and more. Within carbon fiber printing, we’ll take a deep dive into the benefits of Carbon Fiber Reinforcement (CFR) from Markforged.
