Fused Filament Fabrication

FFF or composite 3D printing utilises an extrusion process and highly durable, production-grade thermoplastic resins. FFF delivers parts with mechanical stability, high heat resistance, and in some instances, excellent flammability scores.

FFF is suitable for one off functional prototypes, hard-wearing tooling, and low volume functional parts. Parts are ready for use straight off the printer.

Thermoplastic Resins

Fiberglass

Printer: MarkForged Mk II

An entry-level fibre, 3D printed Fiberglass is 11 times more rigid than ABS and 26 times more rigid than nylon.

Carbon Fibre

Printer: MarkForged Mk II

Carbon Fibre is the strongest of all MarkForged Resins, with a yield strength 20% greater than that of aluminium.

Kevlar

Printer: MarkForged Mk II

Kevlar® is a tough, chemical resistant, lightweight, combustion protection material. Its flexibility is greater than any other fibre, making it ideal for 3D printing.

HSHT Fibreglass

Printer: MarkForged Mk II

HSHT Fiberglass material delivers on high impact resistance and high heat deflection temperature.
