About Markforged

Markforged is a privately-held additive manufacturing company that designs, develops, and manufactures a smart industrial platform of 3D printers, software and materials that empowers manufacturers to print strong parts at the point-of-need. The company is headquartered in Watertown, Massachusetts in the Greater Boston Area. Markforged was founded by Chief Executive Officer Gregory Mark and Chief Technology Officer David Benhaim in 2013. It produced the first 3D printers capable of printing continuous carbon fiber reinforcement and pure copper and utilizes a cloud architecture that makes the platform better each part it prints., The company debuted as a start-up at "SolidWorks World 2014" in San Francisco with a working prototype of the "Mark One" printer, capable of printing in continuous carbon fiber , fiberglass, nylon and polylactic acid . Production machines can also print kevlar. In 2020, the company became the first to market a 3D-printer system capable of printing pure copper, a version of the company's "Metal X" system; the methodology had been in development for some time and involves the use of plastic-encapsulated copper pellets as the raw material. This has been referred to as ADAM technology., In March 2018, Markforged was sued by a rival 3D-printer manufacturer, Desktop Metal, which claimed intellectual property theft and patent infringement in regard to methods patented by Desktop Metal involving "adding layers of an easily removed material to a printed metal product". A finding in favor of Markforged was rendered in the patent infringement case in July 2018., January 2019 saw the publication of a new UL Standard, 2904, "ANSI/CAN/UL Standard Method for Testing and Assessing Particle and Chemical Emissions from 3D Printers". Markforged noted in October 2019 that it was pursuing certification against this new standard, claiming that they "use a plastic compound that generates lower emissions than many competing machines.", In July 2013, Markforged raised $1.1 million in seed funding from North Bridge Venture Partners and Matrix Partners, and in May 2014, the company raised $8.5 million in series A funding. By 2017, Markforged has secured investments from Microsoft Ventures, Porsche SE, Tinity Ventures and Siemens-backed Next47 amounting to US$57 million. By 2017, venture capital firms Matrix Partners, Trinity Ventures and Northbridge Venture Partners had contributed funding as well. By March 2019, Markforged reached funding of US$136.8 million since its founding after raising $82 million in series D funding led by Summit Partners., The business model of Markforged is based on the sale of industrial 3D printers to replace traditional metal manufacturing methods, with the prediction that companies will find parallel printing across many machines continuously to be attractive. The company's closest competitor is Desktop Metal.
