Markforged was founded on the belief that there’s a better way to make things. Manufacturing innovation has stagnated over the last century and the original wave driven by additive manufacturing fell short of all its promise. The initial forays into additive technology cost too much, took too long, or used materials that yielded parts too fragile and short-lived to make an impact in the production environment.
Markforged is transforming manufacturing by addressing 3D printing as a holistic problem. Our process innovations are only possible by a combined effort in advanced cloud computing, cutting-edge materials science, and industrial design. During our first five years, we’ve consistently pushed the boundaries of additive manufacturing – 3D printing with new materials, developing novel platforms, and constantly iterating on technology. Our vision is to increase manufacturing system efficiency through better and faster ways of making functional prototypes, tools and fixtures, and end-use parts, at scale.
