Markforged Onyx One
With the Markforged Onyx Series of printers, you can also pause the print to embed components or sensors into the part during the printing process.
Onyx is a Nylon embedded with micro carbon-fibres, producing parts with a greater stiffness and higher temperature resistance as well as a smart matte black finish, ideal for creating functional parts, components and prototypes. Onyx has a strength up to twice as strong as ABS and is temperature resistant up to 145°C.
The Onyx One has been professionally engineered using high quality components. It has good connectivity via Wi-Fi, Ethernet or USB stick and uses advanced cloud based print software Eiger. The Onyx Series of 3D printers also benefit from a new feature called Turbo Print. Combining innovations in material delivery and software, Turbo Print prints Onyx parts faster, with no loss of surface quality or resolution.
Whilst the Onyx One only uses Onyx its sibling, the Onyx Pro, has the option to add continuous fibreglass for even stronger composite prints.
Designed for Engineers
The Onyx One 3D printer has been designed from the ground up to 3D print carbon fibre, which is an incredibly abrasive material. Carbon fibre wears down brass nozzles very quickly, so it can’t be printed consistency with a regular 3D printer. No other 3D printer on the market has been designed with the sole intention to print carbon fibre. Engineers can use their Onyx One 3D printer to create parts that are dependable and robust, for a wide variety of applications, from robotic tooling to consumer electronics.
Crucially, parts printed with Onyx have a perfect matte finish fresh from the print bed, so they can go straight to work, with no post-processing necessary.
Print Products with an Outstanding Finish
The mineral black onyx is well-known for its surface finish, and that’s why Onyx filament has been named as such. It doesn’t actually contain any onyx mineral, but parts that are 3D printed with Onyx filament are flawless, with excellent hardness and stiffness. And, since Onyx is part nylon and part chopped carbon fibre, you get the stiffness and resilience of carbon fibre, and the engineering toughness and wear resistance of nylon. Onyx filament also has excellent dimensional stability, meaning you can 3D print parts that are true to your CAD design, without having to worry about warping or splitting.
