Innovation through Miniaturization
- Feb 1, 2016
As some of you may know, I recently purchased a Markforged Mark Two 3D printer to meet KMPKT Design's prototyping and production needs. Having put the printer through its paces, I would now like to offer printing services to the smallformfactor.net community. This unit prints extremely high quality and high durability parts in both Markforged's proprietary Onyx material (chopped carbon fibre infused nylon) as well as Nylon. It also has the capabilities to inlay carbon fibre, kevlar, fiberglass or high-strength high-temperature fiberglass (useful for injection molding parts) to create incredibly light weight and strong composites. Specifications are as follows:
320 mm x 132 mm x 154 mm
HSHT Fiberglass (High-Strength High-Temperature Fiberglass)
Z LAYER RESOLUTION
If you want to know more about the machine, there is a great review from Thomas Sandlanderer here:
You can learn more about Onyx here:
We are currently planning to offer printing in Onyx for 0.75 USD per CM3 plus shipping. There may also be a nominal service fee that is as yet undetermined to account for time and labour requirement in running the machine. If you wish to use Carbon Fibre, Kevlar, of Fiberglass, I am happy to give pricing for composite parts on a case by case basis.
While I live in Canada, I have my unit residing with @Josh | NFC in the USA. As such, all printed parts will ship from inside the states which will hopefully be beneficial for a large number of our members. If you are interested in using my services, please PM me directly and we can chat about specifics. I will update this thread as needed with FAQ and other pertinent information.
