Markforged Wins 3D Printing Industry Award for Enterprise 3D Printer of the Year

Markforged, inventor of the world’s first carbon-fiber and breakthrough Metal X 3D printers, announced that the Mark Two won 3D Printing Industry’s first annual Award Enterprise 3D Printer of the Year (FFF/FDM).


The publication launched the awards earlier this year with the goal of highlighting achievements in the 3D printing industry.


3D Printing Industry received more than 4,000 nominations for the awards, which had 20 categories. After the judges determined the finalists, voting was opened up to readers online. 3D Printing Industry is a global media company providing a dedicated resource on news and trends in the 3D printing and scanning industries.


“At Markforged, our core mission remains to provide significant bottom-line results for our customers through strong parts that withstand challenging environments and to ultimately provide bottom-line results for our customers. In just one year, our Mark Two has become the de facto workhorse printer for professionals who want to quickly, cost-effectively print tools and functional parts,” said Greg Mark, CEO, Markforged.


“It’s an honor to be recognized by the 3D printing community.”


Markforged’s Mark Two sits on a desktop, is a fraction of the cost of most industrial 3D printers, and delivers 20 times the strength of other plastics by printing a composite with continuous strands of carbon fiber. Users can also opt for reinforcement with Kevlar™ or high-temperature fiberglass for a range of properties.


With the Mark Two, users have enjoyed a payback on their printer within two weeks in many cases, an average part cost savings of 95% and time savings of 80% over traditional processes to create tooling, fixtures and working prototypes.


The Markforged benefit scales to unlock significant efficiency gains and faster time to market for manufacturers using multiple printers.
