3D Printing Composites With the Mark One
So what’s the big deal? Carbon Fiber is up to 20 times more rigid than ABS Plastic and can support up to 5 times the stress (weight), giving you the ability to fabricate higher quality, higher strength parts. Carbon Fiber contains many strands of Carbon close together giving the overall part its incredible strength while also providing the benefit of being light weight. Carbon Fiber is used extensively in high performance precision machines such as Formula 1 race cars and NASA Space shuttles. Though unique in every right, the Mark One 3D Printer is not a , “why spend the money for a specialty 3D Printer that can do one thing really well but nothing else”, machine; the Mark One also 3D Prints with Fiberglass, Nylon, and PLA Filaments also! The Mark One 3D Printer itself is constructed out of high-strength Aluminum ensuring no warping of the Frame during Printing.
Mark One has a Build Volume of 12″ x 6.25″ x 6.25″, a FDM Print Resolution of up to 100 Microns and a CFF Print Resolution of up to 200 microns. It is a dual Extruder 3D Printer that accepts the MF4 CFF Filament size and the newer 1.75mm Filament size for your FFF/FDM Printing. Mark One benefits from superior temperature regulation by having a fully enclosed Frame and has enhanced accuracy through its auto-calibrating Kinematic-coupled Print Bed. The Mark One 3D Printer also has various connectivity options; it has a standard USB connection as well as advanced connections such as local network connection via WiFi and internet connection via the Cloud which allows you to operate your Mark One from your web browser.
