Safety First


Congratulations on your X5 purchase!

Please take a moment to review the following safety guidelines.

The following notes indicate potential safety hazards that should be recognized when operating a MarkForged X5 3D Printer.

Before beginning use, the X5 must be plugged into a power outlet that is close to the printer and easily accessible. In case of an emergency, disconnect the X5 immediately from the power outlet.



The X5 generates high temperatures.

Tip: Always allow the X5 to cool down before opening the visor or lid, or before reaching inside the printer. Always take extra care when working near the print head. 



The X5 has many moving parts that could cause injury.

Tip: While the X5 is in operation never reach inside it, or open the visor or the lid.



There is risk of electric shock while the printer is in use.

Tip: Please consult with MarkForged or an Authorized Dealer for service. Do NOT use materials that have not been approved by MarkForged for use with the printer. The X5 is designed to work only with MarkForged's proprietary materials and consumables.



The X5 melts thermoplastics and emits thermoplastic odors during printing.

Tip: Make sure to operate the X5 in a well-ventilated area.



The scraper provided with MarkForged printers is sharp and can cause injury if used incorrectly.

Tip: Always scrape away from yourself. Rest the bed in a vertical position, against a sturdy level surface when removing a part. Always use short, ramming motions to remove a part from the print bed. Always keep fingers or other body parts out of the path of the scraper when removing a part from the print bed. Keep the angle between the scraper and the print bed small while you are removing your part.
