Markforged X3 overview

The Markforged X3 is an industrial 3D printer made by Markforged, a US manufacturer based in Boston. The X5 and X7 are part of the same series.

Markforged X3 Onyx material

The X3 3D prints with Onyx, a proprietary filament made of Nylon reinforced with carbon fiber. This material is strong (20% stronger than ABS) and can withstand high temperatures. Onyx enables professionals to 3D print engineering-grade parts at a fraction of the cost of traditional manufacturing.

Markforged X3 main features

  • Material usage detection: the X3 offers material usage detection and informs users when the filament is about to run out.
  • High-precision calibration: thanks to a built-in laser, the 3D printer scans the print bed to provide accurate bed leveling. The laser also acts as a fail-safe in case of a power outage, by scanning and determining where the 3D print stopped.
  • 4.3-inch touchscreen: offers a friendly user interface.
  • Elger software: this proprietary software enables users to 3D print from their browser and control their fleet of 3D printers.
