Nickel-chromium-based superalloy that is highly resistant to corrosion and high temperatures
When to Print with Inconel 625
Parts printed in Inconel 625 are significantly easier to produce than with traditional manufacturing methods, allowing you to easily create functional prototypes and end-use parts for harsh environments.
D2 Tool Steel
High-compression, wear-resistant tool steel for cold-working applications
When to Print with D2 Tool Steel
D2 Tool Steel offers excellent wear resistance and is widely used in cold-work applications that require high compressive strength, sharp edges, and abrasion resistance.

A2 Tool Steel
Markforged printed and heat treated A2 Tool Steel effectively matches wrought heat-treated A2 tool steel in hardness.
When to Print with A2 Tool Steel
A2 Tool Steel is a highly versatile air-hardening tool steel often regarded as a “universal” cold-work steel. It offers a combination of good wear resistance (between O1 and D2) and toughness.

Copper is a soft, ductile metal used primarily for its electrical and thermal conductivity.
When to Print with Copper
The ability to print pure copper using Metal X enables geometrically optimized parts that were previously expensive, time consuming, or impossible to make.
