The MakerBot METHOD is a professional-grade, tinker-free 3D printer that allows you to print ultra-precision parts with a 60°C heated chamber. Delivering uncompromised performance right out of the box, METHOD is the only platform in its category to provide guaranteed dimensional accuracy on printed parts.
Developed from the ground up leveraging industry-leading Stratasys® technology, METHOD features high-quality components like a heated build chamber, precision dissolvable supports, and dry-sealed material bays. Perfect for quick prototypes, fit tests and concept iterations. METHOD delivers maximum innovation with minimal investment.
Designed for complex 3D printing needs, the MakerBot METHOD 3D Printer is bridging the gap between consumer and industrial 3D printing. It features a Dual Performance Extruder system, utilizing the included MakerBot Model 1 and Support 2 Extruders. Combined with the 140°F (60°C) enclosed build chamber, the METHOD is compatible with PLA and PETG filaments. For support filaments, the METHOD can use PVA filament.
The METHOD features a metal frame that runs the entire length of the body to offset flexing. Combined with the spring steel build plate, the METHOD provides a true flat surface for better part accuracy and a reduced chance of failure. There are also two dry-sealed material bays at the base of the METHOD to store your filaments in optimal conditions. The 5" display has a 640 x 480 resolution and supports touchscreen controls. You'll be able to navigate menus and settings as well as monitor your print jobs. The METHOD allows you to print via 10/100 Mb/s Fast Ethernet RJ45 LAN, USB 2.0 Type-A, and Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n).
Note: MakerBot materials are sold separately. For more information, please visit MakerBot's official website.
Ultra-Rigid Metal Frame Construction
The METHOD features a structurally optimized metal frame that runs the full length of the body to offset flexing. Less flexing means more consistent prints with better part accuracy and fewer failures.
Circulating Heated Build Chamber
The enclosed build chamber can reach up to 140°F (60°C). Control the temperature and quality of every layer.
Dual Performance Extruders
The Dual Performance Extruder system accelerates print times and provides dimensional accuracy across every part. Each Performance Extruder contains a suite of sensors that detect when material is running low and allow for active jam detection during the entire print duration. The system also has more torque with a 19:1 dual-drive gear ratio, which keeps materials loaded and ready for reliable material extrusion at every layer. The lengthened thermal core has a fast start-up time, heating up in less than 60 seconds.
Dry-Sealed Material Bays
There are two material bays that form a seal that keeps material free from being damaged from humidity. A suite of built-in sensors ensures that your material is stored in its optimal environment.
The METHOD is compatible with PLA and PETG filaments. For support filaments, the METHOD can utilize PVA.
You can print via 10/100 Mb/s Fast Ethernet RJ45 LAN, USB 2.0 Type-A, and Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n).
5" Full Color Touchscreen
The 5" display features touchscreen controls, allowing you to swipe, tap, and print directly from the METHOD. With a 640 x 480 resolution, you'll be able to receive up-to-the-second status of your current print job.
Spring Steel Build Plate
A precision-calibrated print base and spring steel build plate provide true flatness for part accuracy.
