The Metal X is designed to be safe to use and accessible for all fabricators. It costs up to 10x less expensive than alternative metal additive manufacturing technologies — and up to a 100x less than traditional fabrication technologies like machining or casting.
The Metal X is the most intuitive, simple to use metal 3D printer available today. Print a wide range of materials from stainless steels to copper with minimal training on a closed workflow.
The Metal X is purpose-built for great part quality and a seamless user experience. Markforged combines best-in-class software, materials research, and an advanced motion system to deliver industrial-grade parts reliably.
The Metal X 3D printer is based on the Markforged’s renowned composite 3D printing technology, but instead of using composite material, the printer uses the metal powder that is bound in a plastic matrix. It reduces the safety risks associated with other forms of metal 3D printing. For 3D printing metal parts, Markforged Metal X uses groundbreaking Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing (ADAM) technology that allows the user to create cost-effective and high-quality metal parts. This process involves using a bound metal powder rod enclosed inside a plastic filament. Just like the other 3D printing technologies like FDM, the metal parts are built up layer by layer. This metal 3D printing process helps create light parts that don’t sacrifice on the part strength. Currently, the Metal X is able to print 17-4 Stainless Steel, Inconel 625, H13 Tool Steel, A2 Tool Steel, D2 Tool Steel and Copper. There are other materials such as 316 Stainless Steel and Titanium that is under testing and will be released in the near future.
CAD your part, upload the STL, and select from a wide range of metals. The Eiger software does the rest making printing the right part easy
Metal powder bound in plastic is printed a layer at a time into the shape of your part. Parts are scaled up to compensate for shrinkage during the sintering process.
Printed parts go through a washing stage to remove some of the binder. They are then sintered in a furnace and the metal powder fuses into solid metal.
Now comprised only of pure metal, the final parts are ready for use. They can be processed and treated just like any other metal parts.
