3D PRINTER COMPARISON:
FUSION3 EDGE VS. MARKFORGED X3
Both the Markforged and the Fusion3 are USA companies that focus on commercial-grade 3D printers to build strong, durable parts for commercial users using engineering-grade plastics via Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM).
As the comparison below shows, the Fusion3 EDGE is a much better choice than the Markforged X3, offering a larger print area and the ability to print many materials, not just Carbon Fiber Nylon or Fiberglass Nylon, while saving MORE THAN $30,000.
EDGE has many features that the Markforged X3 does not include, such as automatic mesh bed leveling, a heated print bed, and air filtration. The Fusion3 EDGE includes a two-year warranty, along with free lifetime tech support, compared to the Markforged X3 3D printer’s one-year warranty.
At a much lower price of $6,999 to Markforged’s $36,990, we believe EDGE includes the necessary capabilities that the Markforged X3 lacks. With our attentive customer service and value-added features, EDGE is the right choice for customers who require a commercial 3D printer at an affordable price.
