METHOD X FEATURES
110° CIRCULATING HEATED CHAMBER
Control the temperature and quality of every layer – not just the first. Heated build plates are effective at reducing warping, but METHOD takes this further with full active heat immersion during the entire print duration.
Achieve consistent strength in three axis with recirculating heat on every layer with a heated chamber to produce stronger parts than with a heated build plate.
DUAL PERFORMANCE EXTRUDERS
The Dual Performance Extruder system is built from the ground up to accelerate print times and provide dimensional accuracy across every part.
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.
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.
<60 SECONDS HEAT UP TIME
A lengthened thermal core and a fast start-up time ensure that materials are ready to go when your ideas are.
Access unlimited materials with an Open Materials Platform enabled by MakerBot LABS. Print with advanced 3rd-party materials such as ABS Carbon, TPE (flexible), PETG ESD, and PC on an industrial 3D printing platform.
Tap your innovative spirit and explore new 3D printing applications with pre-qualified materials from leading filament companies to realize your ideas.
3D PRINT METAL ON METHOD
A whole new way to create solid metal parts that can withstand high temperatures and heavy loads with MakerBot METHOD platform and MakerBot LABS Gen 2 Experimental Extruder.
BASF Ultrafuse 316L Stainless Steel parts combine next level strength, rigidity, and durability needed for end-use parts and manufacturing tools.
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.
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.
Stratasys® SR-30 dissolvable support material 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.
CLEAN AIR SYSTEM
Keep your learning environment pristine when 3D printing engineering materials on METHOD X systems. The smart HEPA filter removes up to 95% of Ultra Fine Particles (UFPs) and keeps emissions to less than a laserjet printer.
Compatible with METHOD X and METHOD X Carbon Fiber Edition.
