The Markforged X7 is an FDM professional 3D printer. It’s successfully used in prototyping, performance engineering, and small-scale manufacturing. It adopts a CFF dual-nozzle print system to integrate continuous carbon fiber, fiberglass, and Kevlar reinforcement into Makerforged’s nylon filaments. It switches between the two nozzles during a print, creating a fiber-reinforced plastic, which is extremely strong, wear-resistant and cost-effective. This means you can produce parts stronger than aluminum yet more lightweight, which are ready to use just after printing. These 3D printed components are ideal for producing equipment, tooling, and end-use, functional parts. In-house, same-day manufacturing lets you cut lead time and cost. The printer employs a laser 3D scanner, which checks the 3D models mid-print to grant extreme dimensional accuracy. Read on to learn more.
Let's have some examples to get a sense of what it is capable of doing. Haddington Dynamics uses 3D printing to produce its Dexter’s robot arms. It has been able to reduce the number of parts for each piece from 800 to less than 70. We are talking about high-performance equipment supplied to NASA, GoogleX, and Toshiba.
This is how they look like once assembled. It is amazing, isn’t it?
Look at this adjustable wrench. It is accurate and smooth. The extreme dimensional accuracy of each component makes it work seamlessly.
The Markforged X7 is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 50 microns. This way you can produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces. The X7 adopts high-grade, quality components to ensure optimal performances and extreme printing accuracy. All the printed parts are ready to use just after printing. They don’t need to be post-processed.
The Markforged X7 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 X7 prints with Onyx, Tough Nylon, Carbon Fiber, Fiberglass, Kevlar, High Strength/High Temp Fiberglass and other materials. These high-performance materials are tougher, stronger, and more heat resistant than Aluminum, ABS, and more. They have designed to produce strong parts employed in higher temperature environments. They grant high dimensional stability and near 100% print success rate. After printing, you will get smooth and clean surfaces without the need for mechanical or chemical post-processing.
The extruder is equipped with a cooling fan for reducing warping and stringing. It generally makes for higher quality prints.
Unlike many FDM printers, the Markforged X7 has a heated print bed and closed print chamber, which means it can reliably print with high-performance, high-temperature materials.
The Markforged X7 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 13 x 10.6 x 7.9 inches (330 x 270 x 200 mm) lets you print end-use, professional parts with ease.
The printer is controlled either online and offline via PC, Wi-Fi, and integrated touchscreen.
3D models can be printed from computer via WiFi, Ethernet, and USB Drive.
The printer works with 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.
