The Markforged Onyx Pro is an FDM professional 3D printer. It is the advanced version of the original Onyx One. Like its precursor, the Onyx Pro is optimized to print with the branded Onyx material. It adopts a Continuous Filament Fabrication system to produce fiberglass-reinforced Nylon composite filament on the fly. You can produce house-printed, same-day durable parts without the need for outsourced production. This gives you more control over the print quality and lets you cut lead time and cost. Maximizing your productivity is now quick and simple. The Onyx Pro is both fast and reliable. Its well-built, unibody case is entirely made of aluminum. The stiff structure allows for uncanny accuracy. It employs an ultra-flat gantry system, machined aluminum stage, a kinematic bed coupling, and a precision print platform. It’s successfully used in prototyping and small-scale manufacturing. Read the review for further details.
For example, it was used by Rent the Sky films to produce custom cable adapters for a 15 lb, handheld 3D camera. The engineering-grade of the Onyx Pro’s outputs ensured high dimensional stability and extreme accuracy, which are prerequisites for this kind of advanced application.

The Markforged Onyx Pro fiberglass 3D printer can print layers at 100 microns. The surface finish is not as smooth as you get with the more expensive printers, but is more than enough for prototyping and household use. The device is equipped with top-grade components and a series of smart sensors, including a high-precision scanner, which ensures extreme accuracy. It combines industrial quality with affordability. The advanced hardware and the functional yet simple-to-use software delivers quality results ideal for industrial use.
The Markforged Onyx Pro has two nozzles of 0.4 and 0.9 mm in diameter, giving you the best balance between speed and detail.

The print head runs on rods with linear bearings, making the design more simple, lightweight and effective, all characteristics that are desirable in a 3D printer.
Markforged Onyx Pro is engineered to print with fiberglass reinforced Onyx, a branded material made of nylon and short carbon fibers. The CFF two-nozzle system gives life to a high-performance composite material tougher, stronger, and more heat resistant than ABS. It grants high dimensional stability and near 100% print success rate. It delivers smooth and clean surfaces without the need for mechanical or chemical post-processing.
The extruder comes with a fan. By cooling the model down, it reduces warping, stringing and, generally, makes for higher quality prints.
Unlike many FDM printers, the Markforged Onyx Pro has a heated print bed and closed print chamber, which means it can reliably print with ABS-type materials.
The Markforged Onyx Pro only works with own-brand, chipped filament cartridges. This ensures quality, as all the branded materials go through a strict quality assurance process.
The build area of 12.6 x 5.2 x 6.1 inches (320 x 132 x 154 mm) lets you print just about anything.
The printer is controlled both via PC and integrated touchscreen. The user-friendly interface makes it easy to connect to wifi, start prints and manage the device.
3D models can be printed from computer via WiFi, Ethernet, and USB Drive.
The Onix Pro features the in-house Makerforged’s Eiger software. This easy-to-use, free, cloud-based program offers a variety of advanced features to streamline the printing process. It enables you to import and then slice the printing models directly online from a web browser. It adopts automatic version control, real-time fleet management, and cloud-based collaboration. The advanced control mode lets you have full control over your prints. Eiger runs on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux.

Markforged Onyx Pro is available in gray. Its stylish look makes it ideal for industrial use.
The printer dimensions are 23 x 13 x 14 inches (584 x 330 x 355 mm). It weighs 35 lb (16 kg). The spool holder is mounted inside.
The price of the Markforged Onyx Pro is $7,999.00, which is reasonable considering its functionality and cost/performance ratio.
