Mark Forged Mark II
The Markforged Mark 2 3D printer:
Prints proprietary carbon fibre filled nylon (called ONYX)
Patented second nozzle system can deposit additional fibre between layers
Other plastics and fibres possible, but not in scope of the current training:
The prints are more expensive than prints in PLA/ABS on the Ultimaker, but they promise much higher physical properties. Think of being able to replace aluminium parts with these prints.
Slicing and fibre placement uses cloud hosted software
