Markforged Onyx One 3D Printer

Has anybody used the Markforged One 3D Printer for FRC applications? Additionally, has anybody used their Onyx filament for FRC applications? What were your experiences? I'm considering buying one, but before shelling out that much money I'd like to hear what people think!

Re: Markforged Onyx One 3D Printer

Would highly recommend, I'm not a 3d printer fan but this one just rocks. For me its easy to use and "Just works". People might complain about the cost of filament but TBH for the quality of parts I get out of it IDC.

We used it heavily during our offseason bot and want to purchase 1-2 more.

Markforged Onyx One 3D Printer

We (read: I) wanted to get one, but I recieved immense pushback, mainly because of the pricetag. "Why would we get this when a Prusa I3 is only $700" was a big one. So maybe my question is why should we get one? Is the benefit of it so incredibly more than a $1K or below printer?

Just looking for a way to frame it so the expenditure is justified.

We have one at work and one at robotics. The parts are great, and most of all the printer "just works". We did a lot of set up to get other printers working nice and staying that way. On the flip side, the Markforged is as close to "plug and play" as I've experienced in the additive manufacturing market.

I would highly recommend the printer. We've made pulleys, electronics brackets, enclosures, shifter plates for our custom 2-speed, etc for FRC, and also some pretty advanced mechanisms at work that would be nearly impossible to make via other manufacturing methods. The filament is amazing and the parts can really take a beating if designed correctly.

The cloud printing interface is a huge plus as well, very easy to use.

10/10 would recommend.

-Mike

I think if you are going to buy a Markforged printer you should also have a reliable PLA printer. There will be times when you want to print parts that do not justify $200/kg Onyx.

Re: Markforged Onyx One 3D Printer

We have one also and very happy with it.
Well worth the price/cost for FRC applications.

Re: Markforged Onyx One 3D Printer

Markforged makes hands down the best printers Iíve ever used. We havenít gotten the chance to use it for FRC applications yet since we just got access to one at work this year, but can use it for some small FRC parts in downtime. Iím really excited to make some parts and see how they do.

Re: Markforged Onyx One 3D Printer

For those with the Onyx One, what is the total weight of the machine + accessories?

Had a search online but have seen a few different numbers, just want a ballpark amount.
