Services provided by the Research Machine Shop include the fast fabrication of a physical parts, using the Mark Two fiber composite 3D printer.
The Mark Two is the award winning professional carbon fiber composite 3D printer - built around the Continuous Fiber Reinforcement (CFR) process to reliably produce strong parts. It's built around an aluminum unibody frame that delivers high accuracy and repeatability. A hardened extrusion system enables the Mark Two to print Onyx - a micro carbon fiber filled nylon filament that destroys traditional extrusion systems - reliably over thousands of print hours. The machine is built to be easy to operate and maintain - from easy-to-reach wear components (like nozzles and feed tubes) to usability focused features like the print bed, which can be removed and replaced with 10 μm repeatability.
