Bridging the Skills Gap

As 3D printing rapidly becomes more integrated into the workplace, organizations are increasingly facing challenges in bridging the additive manufacturing skills gap.

For Educators, Research and Labs

  • Special pricing for use in classrooms, research labs, fab labs and non-profits
  • Access to Markforged Additive Manufacturing University free online resources, such as design guides, tips and tricks, videos and more.
  • First Robotics and SAE sponsorship opportunities

What is the Metal X?

The Metal X introduces a unique and groundbreaking method to additively manufacture metal parts. When paired with carbon fiber printers, you get a best-in-class way to go from design to functional part. Don’t take it from us though — here’s what Denis Cormier, director of the AM Print Center at RIT, had to say:

“One of the great things about the Markforged printers is they’re bulletproof– I love that about them. You send a part there, it prints, you know, it’s going to come out. It’s, it’s a very, very rare occurrence that anything goes wrong.” -Denis Cormier, Professor and Director, RIT AMPRINT Center

These FIVE universities created additive manufacturing innovation centers built with state-of-the-art Markforged technology

  • Purdue University
  • Rochester Institute of Technology
  • University of Technology Sydney
  • Oklahoma State University
  • Saskatchewan Polytechnic

Safe, Accessible and Easy to Use

The Metal X system can be installed in any shop or lab. There are no lasers or loose powders to manage, and system fail-safes insure that students and faculty can safely operate the machine.

Materials Portfolio

Print with stainless steels, tool steels, copper and inconel on the Metal X system. Material changeover is as easy as conventional FFF machines and each material has a custom sintering profile.

Affordable to Buy and Maintain

The Metal X system costs up to 10 times less than traditional metal 3D printers and can be effectively maintained for a fraction of the cost. No dedicated machine operator required.
