Makerbot METHOD X Carbon Fiber 3D Printer

Print Complex & Durable ABS Parts With a 100°C Heated Chamber

Makerbot METHOD X Carbon Fiber 3D Printer Features

MakerBot Method X Carbon Fiber Edition allows you to print carbon fiber reinforced nylon and other engineering-grade composite parts with three-dimensional strength and accuracy like never before on METHOD’s unique industrial desktop platform.

Strong, Heat-Resistant Metal Replacement Parts

Carbon fiber reinforced nylon is optimized for high strength, stiffness, and heat resistance making it ideal for structural applications and metal replacements. 

  • Excellent strength to weight ratio - 110 MPa TS - for lightweighting applications such as robotic end effectors
  • Engineering-grade stiffness - 7600 MPa Tensile Modulus - for structural applications such as vehicular brackets and inspection gauges
  • High heat resistance under load - 184°C HDT - for optimal under-hood and tooling applications

Superior Nylon Carbon Fiber Parts with METHOD

METHOD’s unique industrial feature set produces carbon fiber parts with superior three dimensional strength and accuracy

  • METHOD’s Heated Chamber delivers parts that are strong and accurate.
  • Outstanding surface finish that hides layer lines thanks to METHOD’s Ultra-Rigid Metal Frame.
  • Print the most complex geometries including internal cavities with soluble support, or use breakaway support for faster print times.
  • METHOD’s sealed filament bays help keep the material dry, resulting in better print quality and reliability, and METHOD’s pre-print spool drying feature allows for the recovery of oversaturated filament.
