Onyx One, Onyx Pro, Mark Two, X3, X5, X7

 

Question:
What is the shelf life of Markforged plastics and fibers?

Answer:
Onyx and nylon should have a shelf life of over 2 years, as long as the packaging remains sealed (to prevent exposure to moisture). Any of the fibers stored in their sealed packaging (to prevent exposure to contaminants) should have a shelf life of approximately 3 years.

NOTE: Onyx and nylon must be protected from moisture in a drybox after removal from its packaging. The original desiccant pack(s) must be included as well. For more information, see this support article.
