MakerBot Method is designed to carefully control every aspect of the 3D print environment, resulting in repeatable and consistent parts at a level of precision previously limited to only industrial-grade 3D printers. Method leverages technologies and expertise from Stratasys and combines it with the accessibility and ease of use you’ve come to expect from MakerBot.
Industrial technologies on the MakerBot Method 3D printer series include a circulating heated chamber, ultra-rigid metal frame and dry-sealed material bays. MakerBot Print software integrates with several of the most popular CAD programs, including SOLIDWORKS, to allow designers and engineers to design in their preferred platform and workspace. Method’s built-in onboard camera also allows users to monitor their print progress remotely with the MakerBot Print software or the MakerBot Mobile app.
The dual extrusion system found in Method combined with water-soluble PVA provides a superior FDM surface finish and enables unrestricted geometries like complex overhangs. Includes a wide range of performance materials including PLA, PETG and MakerBot TOUGH making it ideal for quick prototypes, fit tests and concept iterations.
MakerBot METHOD X
An enhanced heater chamber and extrusion system allow for the added ability to print production-grade ABS plastics. The Method X is capable of withstanding temperatures 15°C higher than other modified desktop 3D printer ABS material formulations resulting in better Z-layer bonding which provides higher strength and surface finish without warping and curling. This additional material range makes the Method X ideal for production of end-use parts, manufacturing tools and functional prototypes.
