The Metal X System is the most accessible way to fabricate complex metal parts in the widest variety of advanced metals.

The Markforged Metal X is a new kind of metal printer. By printing metal powder bound in a plastic matrix, Markforged has become the first company to eliminate the safety risks associated with traditional metal 3D printers. That means no loose powder, no lasers, and none of the traditional safety precautions. It’s safe to use in a shop environment with minimal facility upgrades.

Metal Printing Solution Metal X

A high-resolution compact 3D printer

The Metal X is the most intuitive, simple to use metal 3D printer available today. Print a wide range of materials from stainless steel to copper with minimal training on a closed workflow.

The Metal X is designed to be safe to use and accessible for all fabricators. It costs 5-10 times less than DMLS metal 3D printing systems and requires no dedicated operator, no powder management system, and minimal PPE.

The Metal X is purpose-built for great part quality and a seamless user experience. Markforged combines best-in-class software, materials research, and an advanced motion system to deliver industrial-grade parts reliably.
