FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Dec. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Becoming 3D, a leading provider of 3D printing design-to-manufacturing solutions, today announced it has become a MarkForged Flagship Reseller Partner for the state of Florida.
MarkForged produces the Mark One, the world's first and only composite 3D Printer. The Mark One enables a user to reinforce 3D-printed parts with continuous strand Carbon Fiber, Kevlar and Fiberglass. Now, functional parts can be printed with a higher strength-to-weight than aluminum, at the desktop.
Using a patented process of a Composite Filament Fabrication (CFF) print head, alongside a FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication) print head, the Mark One enables engineers to print end-use parts, brackets tooling and fixtures that traditionally are made from metals.
In addition the Mark One allows a user to pause a print, and add components before continuing the print, allowing the ability to embed sensors, electronics, hard mounting points and more into the 3D printed part.
"We are extremely excited to partner with MarkForged," said Becoming 3D founder Grant Sadowski. "Their innovative technology and unique product offerings using nylon, fiberglass, carbon fiber and Kevlar positions us uniquely in the marketplace for success. We have experienced tremendous response from our customers since partnering with them."
Unlike traditional 3D printing manufacturers, Becoming3D's comprehensive assessment and solution approach includes a financing program, training, supplies and servicing - critical elements for schools and businesses that are normally not included in the purchase of 3D printers.
