Hundreds of universities in over 30 countries have incorporated a Markforged printer as a key addition to their mechanical engineering and material science curriculum, or to their print lab due to strength and durability of Markforged’s parts.
Students from high school level to universities have already leveraged the power of 3D design and 3D printing, clearly improving their engineering and STEM skills. And with a Markforged 3D printer, you can print what used to be machined to improve speed and save up to 95% of the cost.
Below are just a few examples of what can be achieved by students using a Markforged Mark Two, a Markforged X series, or a Metal X metal 3D printer.
3D Printed Rocket Motor
Onyx + Fiberglass: MIT students make the first composite 3D printed rocket motor. Printed on a Markforged printer it sustained over 5 MPa and 3000k.
Structural Motor Mount
Nylon + Fiberglass: Supporting engineering education, Markforged printers are integrated into a PLTW Applied Technology curriculum.
Research Drone Landing Gear
Nylon + Kevlar: High impact resistant landing gear supported the demands of an Olin College whale research project.
Battle Bot Electronics Housing
Onyx + Kevlar: A battle bot with a fiber-reinforced electronics enclosure is victorious – again.
