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 aluminium. Use Onyx for anything from tooling and fixtures to end-use parts.

What is the difference between chopped carbon fiber and continuous carbon fiber?
