A3016 and A3648 Plastic Extruders

The photos in the Industrial Series support articles depict both the original A3016 (below left) and the updated A3648 extruders (below right). The A3648 is installed in all Gen 2 Industrial Series printers by default (see Note on Hardware Differences, below). It can also be installed in Gen 1 Industrial Series printers, a process which requires some minor rewiring. Differences in service procedures are noted in the text.



Note on Hardware Differences

Markforged Gen 2 composite printers can be identified by the large updated product label on the back panel.
