How is Markforged transforming manufacturing processes in Illinois?

At GSC, we've witnessed the transformative impact of Markforged on the manufacturing industry here in Illinois. Traditional manufacturing has its challenges, particularly in regards to speed and adaptability. Markforged has revolutionized this with their 3D printing technology, enabling the creation of complex parts in a fraction of the time. What used to take weeks, can now be done overnight, which is especially critical when it comes to prototyping and custom manufacturing. The agility that Markforged brings to the table empowers companies to iterate quickly, stay competitive, and bring products to market at an unprecedented pace. With Markforged, we're not just fast-tracking production–we're reimagining the entire process from design to fabrication.

Isn't 3D printing only suitable for prototyping because the parts aren't strong enough for end-use?

That's a common misconception we encounter. Many initially believe that the products of 3D printing are more for form than function–suitable only for prototypes. However, Markforged stands out for its dedication to creating strong, durable parts that rival traditionally manufactured components. The materials we use with Markforged printers, such as aerospace-grade metals and carbon fiber, result in parts that not only meet but often exceed the high standards of strength and durability required in sectors like automotive, aerospace, and healthcare. It's gratifying to debunk this myth and showcase that with Markforged, it's entirely possible, and increasingly common, to print end-use parts for a wide array of applications.

How does Eiger software enhance the 3D printing workflow?

Eiger is much more than just slicing software for 3D printing; it's a comprehensive platform that streamlines the design-to-print process. This cloud-based system is a game-changer because it allows for seamless collaboration among teams. An engineer in Chicago can tweak a design, and moments later, a colleague in Peoria can begin printing the revised part. The real beauty of Eiger, though, lies in its user-friendly interface and secure environment. The synergy between Markforged printers and Eiger software creates an ecosystem where the physical and digital seamlessly converge, providing an unmatched level of control and flexibility in manufacturing workflows.
