MakerBot LABS Open Materials Platform Program

UNLIMITED MATERIALS
WITH OPEN MATERIALS PLATFORM

Explore Advanced 3D Printing Applications

Tap your innovative spirit with the Open Materials Platform by using pre-qualified materials from leading filament companies such as KIMYA, JABIL, Mitsubishi Chemicals, Polymaker, with many more to come.

EXPERIMENTAL EXTRUDER FOR METHOD

The MakerBot LABS Experimental Extruder easily swaps into the model material slot of the MakerBot METHOD X 3D Printer for unlimited material testing options and optimization.

Built on the same industrial architecture as the Performance Extruder for METHOD X, the Experimental Extruder brings power and precision with the added benefit of interchangeable nozzle assemblies.

FEATURED PARTNERS

A growing list of partners has worked to qualify filament for use with the Experimental Extruder.

ABS CARBON FIBER from KIMYA
An ABS composite material with 30% chopped carbon fiber for improved stiffness and lower weight.

PETG ESD from JABIL
An easy processing, Electrostatic Dissipative (ESD) product for printing parts that meet sensitive electronics and could be damaged by electrostatic discharge.

DURABIO™ from Mitsubishi Chemical
Bio-based, BPA free resin. It combines PMMA’s transparency with a higher chemical and scratch resistance compared to polycarbonate (PC).

PC-FR from Polymaker PolyMax™
A flame retardant polycarbonate (PC) filament (UL94V-0/1.5 mm) displaying excellent toughness, strength, and heat resistance.

FEATURED APPLICATIONS

1 Dual Gripper Mount for Manufacturing Robot Arm by All Axis Robotics

Check out MakerBot Materials that have been carefully tested for thousands of hours to achieve engineering standards of printed part dimensional accuracy and strength, for use with METHOD X.
