METHOD’s newly introduced heated chamber annealing feature allows you to print complex part geometries with internal cavities, with MakerBot’s PVA soluble support material that anneals the final part for extra strength.
PRINT STRONG AND HEAT-RESISTANT METAL REPLACEMENT PARTS
Optimized for high strength, stiffness, and heat resistance, Nylon Carbon Fiber is ideal for structural applications and metal replacements.
ACHIEVE SUPERIOR NYLON CARBON FIBER PARTS
Produces parts with superior three-dimensional strength, accuracy, and pristine surface finish with the METHOD’s unique industrial-leading feature set.
110°C Circulating Heated Chamber Delivers Stronger Manufacturing-Grade Parts
Open Platform for 3rd Party Advanced Engineering Materials
Guaranteed Part Accuracy ± 0.2mm and Stratasys SR-30 Soluble Support
Save precious Engineering Time with an Automated Workflow and CAD Integration
Nylon Carbon Fiber offers an ideal lightweight alternative to metal for structural applications such as vehicular brackets and inspection gauges, manufacturing tools such as robotic end effectors, and under-hood applications, across the manufacturing, automotive, and aerospace industries.
Nylon Carbon Fiber Edition also supports materials available for the METHOD platform and MakerBot Labs.
Get industrial 3D printing performance with the MakerBot METHOD X – the next-generation desktop 3D printing platform.
Leveraging on industry-leading Stratasys® patents including high-quality components like a 110°C circulating heated chamber, precision dissolvable supports, and more, print dimensionally-accurate production-grade end-use parts at a fraction of traditional manufacturing costs.
Control the temperature and quality of every layer – not just the first. While heated build plates are effective at reducing warping, Method takes this further with full active heat immersion during the entire duration of the print.
Achieve uncompromised layer adhesion and part strength.
The Dual Performance Extruder system is built from the ground up to accelerate print times and provide dimensional accuracy across every part.
1) Smart sensors for material management and print protection
Leveraging industrial DNA, each Performance Extruder contains a suite of sensors that monitor when the material is running low and allows for active jam detection during the entire print duration.
It’s like autonomous protection for your print—and your printer.
2) Greater torque with a 19:1 dual-drive gear ratio
From great strength comes great performance. The 19:1 dual-drive gear ratio keeps material loaded and ready for reliable material extrusion at every layer.
3) Lengthened thermal core with less than 60-second heat up time
A lengthened thermal core and a fast start-up time ensure that materials are ready to go when your ideas are.
DRY-SEALED MATERIAL BAYS
Form a near-perfect seal with the Dry-Sealed Material Bays found in METHOD X to keep your material free of damaging humidity.
A suite of built-in sensors provides that your material is stored in its optimal environment – a feature only found in industrial 3D printers.
ULTRA-RIGID METAL FRAME CONSTRUCTION
A structurally-optimized metal frame runs the full length of the body to offset flexing. Less flexing means more consistent prints with better part accuracy and fewer failures.
DISSOLVABLE SUPPORT SYSTEM
Superior surface finish and unrestricted geometric freedom are paramount to delivering high quality printed parts. MakerBot Water-Soluble PVA ensures fast and effortless support removal without compromising part design or dimensional accuracy.
Key benefits include unrestricted geometric freedom (large overhangs, cavities, etc.) as well as superior print quality and surface finish.
You can now unlock your METHOD with unlimited materials.
The MakerBot Materials Program allows filament suppliers to qualify their 3D printing materials for the MakerBot METHOD platform. Explore new 3D printing applications with 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 for METHOD easily swaps into the model material slot of METHOD and METHOD X for unlimited material testing options and optimization.
Built on the same industrial architecture as the Performance Extruder for METHOD, the Experimental Extruder brings power and precision with the added benefit of interchangeable nozzle assemblies.
