The attached document (linked at the bottom of this article) goes over design considerations and constraints which should be taken into account when printing parts for the Markforged Metal X. All credit for the creation and dispersal of this design guide goes to Markforged.
Major topics that will be reviewed in this particular design guide include:
- Minimum and maximum part dimensions when working with all currently released Metal X hardware.
- Minimum feature dimensions.
- How to optimize parts for printing with the Metal X.
- Recommendations for post-processing and optimizing parts.
