MakerBot METHOD Special Features

  • Heated Chamber Delivers Stronger Manufacturing Parts:
    • A Heated Chamber produces stronger parts than a heated build plate;
    • Achieve consistent strength in three axis with recirculating heat on every layer;
    • Print real ABS, ASA, and PC-ABS with superior mechanical and thermal properties than modified desktop 3D printer formulations.
  • Open Platform for Advanced Engineering Materials:
    • Print with official MakerBot materials including Nylon Carbon Fiber, ABS, Nylon, PC-ABS and SR-30 – each carefully tested for thousands of hours to achieve engineering standards of printed part dimensional accuracy and strength.
    • Access unlimited materials with an Open Materials Platform enabled by MakerBot LABS. Print advanced materials, such as ABS Carbon, TPE (flexible), PETG ESD, and PC.
  • Guaranteed Part Accuracy and SR-30 Soluble Support:
    • Complex geometries that are impossible to print with advanced materials on a desktop 3D printer – Enabled by Stratasys SR-30 soluble supports;
    • The only printer in its class to guarantee finished part dimensional accuracy ± 0.2mm (± 0.007in);
    • Print complex assemblies that fit with tight tolerances – every time.
  • Save Engineering Time with an Automated Workflow and CAD Integration:
    • Put an end to tinkering and time-consuming printer upkeep with the most streamlined workflow in the industry, including automated material handling, build plate leveling, and extruder calibration.

Further Information

MakerBot METHOD bridges the gap between industrial and desktop 3D printing. It was developed from the ground up leveraging industry-leading Stratasys® patents including a heated build chamber, precision dissolvable supports, and dry-sealed material bays.
Engineers and designers use METHOD to create prototypes, jigs and fixtures, and end-use parts.
