Inexpensive and 11 time stiffer than ABS, Fiberglass is the perfect entry-level Continous Fiber for 3D printing functional parts.
About the Onyx Pro
The Onyx Pro is an advanced professional 3D printer – built around the Continuous Fiber Reinforcement (CFR) process to reliably produce strong parts for you. It’s built around an aluminum unibody frame that delivers high accuracy and repeatability. A hardened extrusion system enables the Onyx Pro to print Onyx — a micro carbon fiber filled nylon filament that destroys traditional extrusion systems — reliably over thousands of print hours. The machine is built to be easy to operate and maintain — from easy-to-reach wear components (like nozzles and feed tubes) to usability focused features like the print bed, which can be removed and replaced with 10 μm repeatability.
In addition to more common FFF features, the Onyx has a 2nd-generation fiber reinforcement system that enables you to lay down continuous Fiberglass into parts. Markforged composite printers are capable of printing continuous fiber reinforced parts, which can replace machined aluminum parts in application.
