Maximum Innovation. Minimal Investment.
MakerBot 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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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 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.
+ The MakerBot LABS Experimental Extruder will be available for sale in spring 2020.
A growing list of partners has worked to qualify filament for use with the MakerBot LABS and 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.
