From Monday 5th February 2024, there will be a small adjustment in the price of our Onyx material from $325 to $350 per spool. This is the first change since starting to supply Onyx in 2018, & is prompted by increasing shipping and administration costs, along with exchange rate fluctuations. We appreciate your understanding and continued trust in our commitment to delivering quality products. Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact email@example.com. Customers with an active Digital Forge Subscription will still be eligible for the “10 for 9” discount (available here: https://store.coreadditive.au/collections/onyx/products/onyx-spool-pack-10-spools)
Onyx is Nylon mixed with chopped carbon fiber offers a high-strength thermoplastic with excellent heat resistance, surface finish, and chemical resistance. Onyx serves as a thermoplastic matrix for Markforged’s composite parts. It can be printed alone or reinforced with one of our continuous fibers to give strength comparable to aluminum. Use Onyx for anything from tooling and fixtures to end-use parts.
How strong is Onyx?
What is the difference between chopped carbon fiber and continuous carbon fiber?
Chopped carbon fiber is what is mixed into Onyx filament giving it high stiffness and strength. Continuous carbon fiber is a reinforcement fiber that can be printed in long strands, creating composite parts up to 20 times stronger and stiffer than Onyx.
