CREAT3D feature the revolutionary Mark One Composite 3D Printer at Falmouth 3D Printing Week.
CREAT3D will be showcasing the latest development in 3D printing equipment over 2 days during the Falmouth/Penryn 3D Printing Demonstration Week on Thursday 25th and Friday 26th September, in Falmouth, Cornwall this September.
The Mark One Composite 3D Printer by MarkForged, ideal for Marine applications, produces Nylon based parts that can be reinforced with Carbon Fibre, Fibreglass or Kevlar, creating very high strength, functional 3D printed parts, for working prototypes or jig & fixtures. The printer can also be used to embed other components such as sensors and electronics into the object during the print process.
The material combinations available with the Mark One 3D Printer provides a number of applications for jigs and fixtures, end-use parts, moulds, components (with embedded technologies and parts) through to prototypes for product design & innovation.
For example, a chain link printed on the Mark One with reinforced Carbon Fibre by the Olin College of Engineering supported approximately 10 tonnes before failing.
Our team of experts will be available on Thursday 24th and Friday 25th September at the Falmouth 3D Printing Demonstration Week from 10am to 5pm. The event is taking place at the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society. We invite visitors to bring examples of parts they may wish to 3D print and will be offering free consultations to discuss the feasibility of incorporating desktop 3D printing into existing processes.
