Straight ACE for the Mark One
Saturday, 25 October 2014

MarkForged has received an Award for Composites Excellence (ACE) from the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA), for its development of the first 3D printer that can continuously accommodate carbon fibre, Kevlar and glass.?

Designed to print with parts with the strength of metal, the Mark One printer employs a patent pending composite filament fabrication (CFF) print head alongside an FFF (fused filament fabrication) printhead, to allow functional parts to be created by combining a proprietary nylon with continuous fibre filaments.
