World’s first 3D printer capable of printing carbon fiber (VIDEO)

Designed and manufactured by MarkForged, the Mark One can print to a maximum size of 305 x 160 x 160 mm (12 x 6.25 x 6.25 in). In addition to CF, it can also print in fiberglass, nylon and polylactic acid (PLA) – although it only prints one material at a time through its dual extrusion print head. And since it’s vital to be able to remove and replace the print tray in exactly the same place between layer runs, the Mark One’s removable platform clips back in with 10-micron accuracy.
