MarkForged Metal X review

The MarkForged Metal X is a professional metal 3D printer made by MarkForged, a manufacturer based in the US.  This metal 3D printer offers an enclosed and heated build chamber. For quality control, the MarkForged Metal X integrates a 3D scanning unit capable of reaching 1-micron measurement accuracy and 50-micron 3D scanning resolution.

MarkForged Metal X 3D printing technology


MarkForged developed a proprietary 3D printing technology called ADAM (Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing). This metal printing process is based on the extrusion technology. The ADAM 3D printing process creates 3D parts using a bound metal powder rod embedded inside a plastic filament. A heating module allows the removal of the plastic and the sintering of the metal powder into a strong and dense part.

MarkForged describes ADAM as “an end-to-end process that starts with metal powder, captures it in a plastic binder and then forms it into the part shape, one layer at a time”. The ADAM metal 3D printing process is cost-effective and allows the Mark X to churn out high-quality metal parts.

MarkForged Metal X 3D printing materials

The MarkForged Metal X’s default metal 3D printing material is l 17-4 PH stainless steel. Other compatible materials also include tooling steel, Titanium, Inconel, copper, and aluminum.

Markforged Metal X vs Desktop Metal

In March 2017, metal 3D printer startup Desktop Metal filed a lawsuit against MarkForged for several patent infringements and other trade violations. MarkForged was then cleared of IP infringement in a trial and both companies reached an agreement in October 2018 regarding all outstanding issues between the two metal 3D printing giants.
