As companies seek out new ways to create and innovate, they are constantly faced with unique demands each industry requires. This calls for a true variety of materials that can fit the job, no matter what challenge or stresses the produced parts run into!

The development of 3D printing technology has enabled the production and distribution of custom manufactured goods at an affordable price. Parts now have the capability to be customized to fit their end use with diverse materials including plastics, composites, and metals. Now, many industries using additive manufacturing in product development procceses to aid in rapid prototyping and even creating end-use products!

For instance, the redesigning for additive manufacturing of an antenna support arm for space satellite performed by OptiStruct and Altair Product Design teams at Altair Engineering showed a weight reduction of 50% using the correct suited material! Additive Manufacturing has been proven to be the best approach for optimizing the development and performance of a succesful part or product.


The good news is that we are proven experts and authorized distrubutors/partners of these materials and 3D Printers! Our job is to make it easier for companies and users to adopt this next-level technology. Here are some key materials that we use daily to solve industrial product development and prototyping challenges:


Onyx material is at the core of all Markforged printers starting with the Onyx One. It is a beautiful black filament made from combining tough nylon with micro-carbon reinforcement. Onyx gives you stiff and dimensionally stable engineering grade parts, with twice the strength of other 3D printed plastics. Onyx parts have a high quality surface finish and high heat tolerance.

Purchase your genuine Markforged Onyx Filament Material from Advantage 3D Solutions, a certified Markforged professional reseller.

Markforged Compatible 3D Printers: Onyx One, Onyx Pro, Mark Two, X3, X5, X7

High-strength thermoplastic with excellent heat resistance, surface finish, and chemical resistance.

Pro HT is a general-use bio performance material for open-environment 3D printing. With a softening resistance up to 115 °C, it has a significant increase in temperature resistance compared to the average PLA; making it ideal for practical, end-use applications. With increased temperature resistance, minimal warping and shrinking, Pro HT is an ideal PLA alternative and the choice material for wearable devices or any general-purpose product that may face higher than average temperatures.
