Seriously. Great review Tom! December 10, 2017 Reply john hopkins Nope… sticking with my local cnc shop… December 13, 2017 Reply Max de Feijter Are you a pilot? December 25, 2017 Reply Dee Bee So they use open source/patent free technology as the main platform of operation yet hold the patent for the fiber extrusion head and won't let it out ? Ridiculous. …Markforged is a company that is less then to be desired after finding out they are holding back humanity's ability to thrive in this arena. January 17, 2018 Reply Sonic Alchemy: A maker space Nice use of the word dingleberry. January 18, 2018 Reply Bobster986 I don’t necessarily like the online based slicer, if you loose connection your done, they should also provide a hard drive base software too. January 28, 2018 Reply Pete Brown The overall design and cloud slicer for this look a LOT like it was based on the failed Zeepro Zim. They have a Boston-area area code, so I assume they're not related to the French company. But the resemblance of hardware and software is uncanny. Anyway, after that company, I wouldn't buy any 3D printer that required a cloud slicer. Eventually, they'll eventually go out of business, or stop supporting it, and you're stuck with a $14,000 paper weight. Or they'll put limits on personal resale of the device, and you won't be able to unload it later to get something else. February 9, 2018 Reply Dave L I see a $1,350.00 printer not 13,500.00 lol February 15, 2018 Reply m3chanist Dingleberry! lol, first time I've heard a beautiful Pelican case referred to as a dingleberry but, in context, an accurate assessment. Also, 10 points for your ethical stance re patent application and use of open source. You have something of the Stallman of 3d printing about you, a very good thing. February 24, 2018 Reply Solve Everything How about 3d printing in more exotic materials? Such as titanium or gold? March 26, 2018 Reply chemykl Did they patent encasing fiber in filament and then smooshing it onto the print? I feel like a lot of startups in the 3D printing space are patenting common sense stuff. March 28, 2018 Reply John Smith well done, just subscribed March 31, 2018 Reply MortarRiding It's reviews like this Thomas, that assure me that you are one of the most open, and ethical 3D printing YouTube commentators. You're handed what appears to be an incredible tool, I'm sure with the hope that you'll do them favours, and while you don't tear them to shreds, you specifically comment about their failure to note the open source development that led to their designs, and you complain about their patents, which are potentially holding back further innovation. You do your research, and criticise specifically where it's fair to do so. April 13, 2018 Reply Kevin Miedema 13.000 dollars for a desktop machine that prints carbon and Kevlar reinforced parts is kind of amazing. April 29, 2018 Reply lost+found Damn, would have loved to see torture tests on prints 🙂 May 3, 2018 Reply Benny Flaco If the filament is hygroscopic, the printed object will be aswell… ??? May 10, 2018 Reply Heath Nielsen Have compared this to form 2. They have materials that compare. May 16, 2018 Reply ffxme but you can't have fibers along z… June 10, 2018 Reply joe giacona This was a great review. Very balanced with the pros and cons without completely bashing the product or praising it. June 12, 2018 Reply STALKER Kevlar and bonded nylon thread seem quite cheap, It would be nice to see this on low end fdm printers. July 25, 2018 Reply Zastavan I would rather have lathes, drill presses, and mills than this. August 27, 2018 Reply CustomSmith MFG I own 2 Onyx Pro's and one Mark 2- totally love them- I use them for printing parts that I design and sell. Great video. August 28, 2018 Reply Choy Sum Markforged needs to get mushroom slapped. October 16, 2018 Reply Parker Russell it makes more since to get carbon fiber sheets and print around the carbon, it takes more thought put into design but if you want quality product this machine doesn't makes sense to me. cut your carbon skeleton print half ur object, lay the carbon in and finish the object. it's complicated but it's going to be stronger than what this offers. November 8, 2018 Reply okamu ubaku fuck patents , fuck copyrights , fuck all the thieves who claim that intellectual property should be protected (because they only mean THEIR one) November 9, 2018 Reply Shawn Tootill as a owner of the Markforged Mark Two I am VERY disappointed with the Layer interface Surface quality. November 26, 2018 Reply Giacomo Quercioli Is It possible to print only fiber filament without using any Onyx/Nylon core? December 2, 2018 Reply AnticommentWarrior I got the two samples from markforged and I'm blown away by how strong the carbon fiber is, I could not break it even with pliers.. this is my dream February 15, 2019 Reply Kah Zhoy Low Wow, i wonder what size is the fiberglass filaments? Can i use it on my printer? April 23, 2019 Reply Ankit Bhat too expensive and very limited to Markedforged products for my liking. I though Ulitmaker was the Apple of 3D printing. I think this one takes that title, and I ain't an Apple fan no more July 8, 2019 Reply Add a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
