Nylon mixed with chopped carbon fiber offers a high-strength thermoplastic with excellent heat resistance, surface finish, and chemical resistance.
When To 3D Print With Onyx Material
Onyx serves as a thermoplastic matrix for Markforged’s composite parts. It can be printed alone or reinforced with one of our continuous fibers to give strength comparable to aluminum. Use Onyx filament for anything from tooling and fixtures to end-use parts.
Certified UL 94 V-0 rated nylon filled with chopped carbon fiber. Reinforce Onyx FR with continuous carbon fiber to be as strong as 6061 aluminum at half the weight.
When to 3D Print with Onyx FR Material
Onyx FR should be used to print parts that need high-strength, low-weight, and flame-retardant properties.

HSHT Fiberglass Filament
HSHT fiberglass material delivers the highest impact resistance and heat deflection temperature of our continuous fibers.
When To 3D Print With HSHT Fiberglass Material
With superior heat resistance and a flexural strength that is second only to carbon fiber, HSHT fiberglass is ideal for applications requiring high heat and impact resistance or high elasticity.

Carbon Fiber Filament
Our stiffest, strongest fiber with the highest strength-to-weight ratio.
When To 3D Print With Carbon Fiber
Carbon fiber material is strong enough to replace aluminum at half the weight; use it when you want superior stiffness and minimal deflection.

Inexpensive and 11 times stiffer than ABS, fiberglass is the perfect entry-level fiber for 3D printing.
When To 3D Print With Fiberglass Material
Use fiberglass composite material to print parts that are an order of magnitude stiffer than typical 3D printed objects at the most affordable price.

Kevlar® is tough, lightweight material, and can bend further than any other fiber, making it ideal for 3D printing.
When To 3D Print With Kevlar Material
Kevlar is best utilized in parts that will take a beating. Its low density and high durability make it a great option for applications involving a lot of motion or interfacing with production parts.

Nylon White is stronger, stiffer and more reliable than Markforged’s original Nylon material. The material exhibits a smooth, non-abrasive surface finish, and is reinforceable with any continuous fiber material options.
When To 3D Print With White Nylon
It can be reinforced with any continuous fiber, is far stronger than PLA, and nearly as strong as ABS.
