MakerBot METHOD X

Print Real ABS with a 100°C Heated Chamber.

The METHOD X 3D Printer from MakerBot leverages on industry-leading Stratasys® patents including high-quality components like a 100°C heated build chamber, precision dissolvable supports, and dry-sealed material bays.

Print dimensionally-accurate, production-grade, real ABS end-use parts at a fraction of traditional manufacturing costs.

Description

Maximum Innovation. Minimal Investment.

METHOD X is capable of printing real ABS that can withstand up to 15°C higher temperatures, is up to 26% more rigid, and up to 12% stronger than modified ABS formulations used on desktop 3D printer competitors.

Real ABS parts printed on METHOD X have no warping or cracking that typically occurs when printing modified ABS on desktop platforms without heated chambers.

METHOD X Features

The manufacturing workstation includes industrial 3D printing features such as:

  • 100°C Circulating Heated Chamber
  • Dual Performance Extruders
  • Dry-Sealed Material Bays
  • Stratasys SR-30 Soluble Supports

which makes it ideal for printing with advanced, engineering-grade materials and partners can now leverage these capabilities to print advanced materials on the platform.

Applications

METHOD X
Applications

Powered by Stratasys, METHOD X is most suitable for creating complex end-use parts, manufacturing tools, and functional prototypes with superior reliability and dimensional accuracy.

Get consistent print results with a dimensional accuracy of ±0.2mm – all thanks to a circulating 100°C heated chamber that enables uncompromised layer adhesion and part strength.

Electronics Housing

Get dimensionally-accurate, production-grade, real ABS end-use parts at a fraction of traditional manufacturing costs. METHOD reduces costs and saves time for small production manufacturing runs.

Pneumatic Pump

Prototype with production-grade ABS to achieve part properties close to injection molded parts. Print dimensionally accurate assemblies and validate designs to get your products to market faster—all at a fraction of typical industrial 3D printing costs.

EOA Robotic Sander

Create durable, real ABS parts for the production floor. Print dimensionally accurate jigs, fixtures, and end-effectors that fit seamlessly with existing components.
