Since it debuted on the market, the Mark One 3D printer has been redefining what people expect from 3D printed objects. The MarkForged machine prints plastic parts, which can be reinforced with three types of material: carbon fiber, Kevlar, and fiberglass. This allows users to create working prototypes and high-quality end-use products – a huge milestone in the quest to streamline the design process.

These frequently asked questions shed light on Mark One software called Eiger, its ease of use, and how it enables designers and engineers to create products that push the envelope.

Is the software included for free when I purchase a Mark One printer?

Yes, access to Eiger is included with the purchase of a Mark One™.

Can I use 3rd party software with the Mark One?

No. The CFF™ printhead in the Mark One™ requires special software to operate correctly. Eiger also includes advanced path planning algorithms to reduce your print time, and maximize part strength for every print.

What kind of files can be imported into the MarkForged software?

Eiger can import .STL and .OBJ models.

Can the orientation of the fibers be controlled?

Yes. Eiger can automatically choose the orientation of fibers, or you can specify the orientation on a layer-by-layer basis. Our software was specifically designed to give users total control over fiber orientation in each layer and thus, directional strength. 

Where can I obtain models to print on my Mark One?

Models can either be created using any CAD or 3D modeling programs that are capable of exporting a model in one of the supported formats.  Alternatively, models can also be downloaded from the various sources on the Internet.

Do I need a separate model file for each material like some other multi-material printers?

Only one model is required for each part.
