Professional printers are incredible “technology accelerators”. Organizations use them to accelerate their production workflow by first increasing productivity on their current infrastructure, both labor and capital. They can also be used to displace or enhance current production workflows in many ways such as reduced turnaround times, lower input costs, customization, etc. This category of 3D Printers includes the widest variety of platforms, and produces some of the highest value results. We love 3D printing with these machines!
MarkforgedMarkforged products transcend the realm of 3D printing prototypes and trinkets. Using unique technology to print amazing carbon fiber parts that can be reinforced for metal-strength, they break down the barriers between idea and reality for every designer, engineer and manufacturer.
