Check out Anderson Labs' new 3D printer!


The CSE Anderson Student Innovation Labs recently installed a new high-strength Markforged Mark Two 3D printer.

The Mark Two machine combines traditional 3D printing technology with continuous fiber reinforcement to create lightweight composite parts as strong as aluminum, making it the perfect option for making functional prototypes without the hassle of machining parts out of metal.

Parts created by this machine are very light and rigid compared to other printing methods. Material options are onyx filament, carbon fiber continuous fiber, Kevlar continuous fiber, and HSHT fiberglass continuous fiber.

Submit your files online and Anderson Labs staff will print them out for you. Pricing and additional information are included on the submission form.
