Why MakerBot METHOD X?

 

aster and more precise printing than ever before with manufacturing features you need: Production-grade ABS Material Create end-use parts, functional prototypes, and manufacturing tools with real ABS material and Stratasys SR-30 soluble support material. 21 Onboard Sensors A network of 21 intelligent sensors embedded throughout the printer gives you full control while making material and print management easy and accessible. Wireless Printing & Monitoring Away from the office? Remotely print, monitor, and control your printer from anywhere in the world. 5 inch Colour Touchscreen Swipe, tap, print. With the built-in 5” full-color capacitive touchscreen display, receive up-to-the-second status of your current print job and navigate menus in the most intuitive way you already know—with your finger. 25 CAD File Types With over 25 supported native CAD file types, you can focus on your next design sprint rather than messy plugins and conversions.

UNCOMPROMISED LAYER ADHESION AND PART STRENGTH

 

Circulating 100°C Heated Chamber Control the temperature and quality of every layer - not just the first. While heated build plates are effective at reducing warping, METHOD X takes this further with full active heat immersion during the entire duration of the print..

METHOD X Applications

 

Consistent print results with a dimensional accuracy of ±0.2mm End-use Parts Get dimensionally accurate, production grade, real ABS end-use parts at a fraction of traditional manufacturing costs. The MakerBot METHOD X reduces costs and saves time for small production manufacturing runs. Benefits Real, Production-grade ABS provides part properties closer to injection molded parts. Dimensionally accurate parts that fit seamlessly as part of an assembly, such as sensor mounts for an electronics assembly. Print complex assembly parts with carve-outs, holes and large overhangs. Get end-use parts in hours instead of weeks at a fraction of the cost, with a 3D printer that just works.

Functional Prototypes

 

Prototype with production-grade ABS to achieve part properties close to injection molded parts. Print dimensionally accurate assemblies and validate your designs to get your products to market faster—all at a fraction of industrial 3D printing costs. Benefits Dimensionally accurate parts that fit seamlessly as parts of an assembly, such as impeller assembly or electronics housings. Parts print with flat roofs, cylindricity, and superior vertical layer uniformity. Prototype with production-grade ABS to achieve part properties closer to injection molding. Complex assembly geometries like gears, threads, carve-outs, and large overhangs. Get fit and functional prototypes quickly with a 3D printer that just works.

Manufacturing Tools

 

Create durable, real ABS parts for the production floor. Print dimensionally accurate jigs, fixtures, and end-effectors that fit seamlessly with existing components. Benefits Real, engineering-grade ABS that can withstand the harsh manufacturing environment and ensure long tool life. Dimensionally accurate parts that fit seamlessly with existing components, such as a robot arm. Parts print with flat roofs, cylindricity, and superior vertical layer uniformity. Soluble supports to print complex tool geometries with carve-outs, holes and large overhangs that are difficult or impossible to produce with traditional methods. Get tools in hours instead of weeks with a 3D printer that just works.

UNRESTRICTED GEOMETRIC FREEDOM

 

Disolvable Support System Superior surface finish and unrestricted geometric freedom are paramount to delivering high quality printed parts. Stratasys SR-30 ensures fast and effortless support removal without compromising part design or dimensional accuracy. Stratasys SR-30 soluble support material provides two key benefits: Unrestricted geometric freedom (large overhangs, cavities, etc.) Superior print quality and surface finish.
