MarkForged Mark One 3D printer.
The specialist 3D printer retailer has introduced the Mark One to its growing product line to provide engineering customers with the ability to manufacture functional nylon parts with reinforced fibres in Carbon Fibre, Kevlar or Fibreglass.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be adding the Mark One 3D printer to our existing line-up of high quality desktop 3D printers," Simon Chandler, Managing Director of CREAT3D explained. "As the UK’s supplier of MarkForged products, this printer offers an unparalleled ability to really push product design and development for both our Business and Higher- Education customers. With the ability to print in Nylon with fibre reinforcements, it provides the opportunity to create not only advanced prototypes, but high quality end- use parts. No other desktop 3D printer in the market today offers the same combination of high-strength functional prints, and low purchase and operating costs."
Matt Katzman, Director of Sales at MarkForged added: “ MarkForged is thrilled to partner with CREAT3D. CREAT3D’s wealth of knowledge about the desktop 3D printing market makes them a true value added reseller, providing superior pre-and-post sales support. We look forward to working together to expand use of the Mark One in the UK.”
￼With the Mark One, you can also pause a print and add components before continuing the print, allowing you to embed sensors, electronics, hard mounting points and more into the 3D printed part. The printer uses engineering grade nylon to evenly fill contours and curves with close- packed reinforcement, switching between two nozzles during a print, to create fibre-reinforced plastic parts with a strength-to-weight ratio better than aluminium.
Greg Mark, Founder and CEO of MarkForged, explains “We're making the most mechanically robust desktop 3D printer. No other printer can match the printing repeatability and print head accuracy at this price. On top of that, we've commercialised the best method for printing usable parts with fibre reinforcement to enable faster design cycles, more meaningful prototype testing and will change the way that products are developed for years to come.”
The Mark One is priced at £4,000.00 excl. VAT with 6 day a week Technical Support from CREAT3D.
