3D-Printing with Fibers

The Markforged Mark Two printer can print with contiues and discontiues fibers.

You can't get physical access to the Markforged Mark Two printer. You can however get your specimens printed on the printer.

The print material is very expensive, so you need to have your arguments in place for why you need to make your prints using this printer.
