We just doubled the print speed of our Mark Two and Onyx Pro Gen 2 printers.

Mark Two and Onyx Pro Turbo Print is a new 250 µm layer height print mode for Gen 2 Mark Two and Onyx Pro printers that results in print speed increases of up to 2x compared to 200 µm print settings. Print speeds up to two times faster means parts are delivered quicker, printer throughput is increased, and design iterations are completed sooner, resulting in more value and increased ROI.

Turbo Print is especially valuable if you have high printer utilization, operate a print farm, need to produce MRO parts or respond quickly to line changeovers on the factory floor, or if you print design iterations.

And to top it off, parts printed at 250 µm maintain the same surface finish quality as parts printed at 200 µm.

Print time and surface finish comparisons between 200 µm and 250 µm layer heights.

Printing faster has several benefits. Up to 2x faster printing means:

  • Parts get made faster right when you need them.
  • Product development is accelerated and timelines are reduced.
  • Factory floors get on-demand MRO and line changeover parts made faster.
  • Job shops are more productive and can accept more jobs.

Increased production rates for a typical part with Turbo Print.

How to Get Turbo Print

Mark Two and Onyx Pro Turbo Print is compatible with Gen 2 devices, supports our Onyx filament, and requires no hardware changes. Compatible Mark Two and Onyx Pro online printers require a firmware update. Offline Eiger users with active licenses will receive this feature packaged in a future quarterly software update.

Due to hardware limitations, Turbo Print is not compatible with Gen 1 desktops or Gen 2 Onyx Ones:

  • Gen 1 Onyx One, Gen 1 Onyx Pro, and Gen 1 Mark Two printers are incompatible because the Gen 1 extruder does not have sufficient filament push-force and the wiring in the printer does not support the Gen 2 extruder so an extruder swap is not possible.

  • Gen 2 Onyx One printers lack a fiber heater, which is required to generate the heat necessary to melt plastic fast enough for 250 µm printing.

  • It is easy to figure out if your printer is a Gen 1 or Gen 2. Simply look at the product label on the back of the device.

  • While we stopped selling Gen 1 desktops in 2019, they will continue to receive support through December 31, 2026, if covered by an active support plan or under warranty. Read this bulletin for more details.

Like our other printers, Mark Two and Onyx Ones print strong, functional parts, are operated by secure and intuitive software, are proven and reliable, and are easy to use. And now, they are twice as fast.
