The METHOD X is compatible with a range of engineering-grade materials, including ABS, Nylon, PC-ABS, and more, allowing you to create strong and durable parts that meet your exact specifications.

The printer is easy to use, thanks to its intuitive touchscreen interface and remote monitoring capabilities. With the MakerBot Print software, you can easily prepare your 3D models for printing and remotely monitor your printer's progress from anywhere.

Overall, the MakerBot METHOD X 3D Printer is a powerful and versatile tool that is perfect for a wide range of industrial applications, from prototyping to manufacturing.

MakerBot METHOD X Special Features

  • Circulating Heated Chamber: At the heart of the MakerBot METHOD platform is the circulated heated build chamber, exclusive to MakerBot and powered by Stratasys, the world-wide leader in Industrial 3D printing. The heated build chamber helps you to achieve dimensional accuracy and high strength manufacturing grade parts; METHOD X can reach up to 100°C.
    • A heated chamber produces stronger and more durable parts than a heated build plate.
    • Produces consistent strength in 3 axis with recirculating heat on every layer.
    • Achieves better mechanical and thermal properties than modified desktop 3D printer formulations.
  • Manufacturing Grade Parts: The MakerBot METHOD platform can print with a wide variety of advanced engineering materials. The open platform allows you to access unlimited materials with MakerBot Labs.
    • Print with official MakerBot materials including Nylon Carbon Fibre, 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.
  • Dimensional Accuracy: A key feature of MakerBot METHOD 3D Printers is the finished part's dimensional accuracy. This allows METHOD to print complex geometries that are impossible to print with advanced materials on a regular desktop 3D printer.
    • Enabled by Stratasys SR-30 soluble supports.
    • The only printer in its class to guarantee finished part dimensional accuracy ±0.2mm.
    • Print complex assemblies that fit with tight tolerances - every time.
  • Dual Performance Extruders: The MakerBot METHOD dual-performance extruder system is built from the ground up to accelerate print times while providing dimensional accuracy.
    • Smart Sensors for material management and print protection.
    • Greater Torque with a 19:1 dual-drive gear ratio.
    • Lengthened thermal core with less than 60 seconds of heat-up time.
  • Wireless Printing & Monitoring: MakerBot Print + MakerBot Cloud work hard so you don't have to. With over 25 supported native CAD file types, you can focus on your next design rather than messing around with plugins and conversions. You can also remotely print, monitor, and control your device from anywhere in the world.
  • Automated & Tinker Free: MakerBot boast the most streamlined workflow in the industry saving you time and putting an end to tinkering.
    • Automated material handling, build plate leveling, and extruder calibration.
    • Keep your projects moving and enjoy peace of mind with MakerBot's leading in-house customer support plus a local Australian warranty.
    • Seamless CAD integration with AUTODESK INVENTOR, AUTODESK FUSION 360. Onshape, and Solidworks.

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.
