Professional printers are generally targeted to business users who make use of 3D printing as a “technology accelerator”, either for themselves, or in support of other businesses. By incorporating 3D print, they enhance their workflow and production in commercially viable ways, and generate tangible Returns on Investment. This category of 3D Printer includes the widest variety of platforms, and it produces some of the highest value results.
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.
