It must be recognized that Markforged has known how to do its job very well, not in vain we are talking about a company that was founded a little more than three years ago and, in this time, its leaders have managed to position it as one of the most powerful, strong and relevant in the world of 3D printing thanks, among other things, to the high quality of its machines and its large catalog, which has just been updated with the inclusion of two new models, the X3 and the X5.
Before continuing, let me tell you that these two new models designed and manufactured by the Markforged company have been oriented to the professional sector, which means not only that their characteristics can be simply impressive, but that their price makes them very little accessible. to anyone who wants to use them in a domestic environment, even so, according to the company, these printers are designed to be used in local businesses.
Markforged X3 and X5, two new professional 3D printers have just hit the market
As commented Greg Mark, founder and current CEO of Markforged:
For 30 years, 3D printing customers have been forced to compromise between strength, time, and affordability, without the opportunity to benefit from all three. With the complete Industrial Series, the new Metal X printer, these trade-offs no longer exist.
Customers can now easily print parts the same day that optimize strength and affordability for their specific needs.
Regarding the technical characteristics of both models, it should be noted that the X3 It is a machine that can work with Onyx, a material that uses carbon fiber nylon capable of withstanding high temperatures. The price of this particular model is U.S. dollar 36.990.
If we go to Markforged X5 We are facing a model that can also work with Onyx although it adds certain extra features that exceed those of the small X3. Due to this the price of this particular machine rises up to U.S. dollar 49.900.
