Introducing Method X

Uncompromised performance. From the inside out.

Ultimate Reliability

Over 300,000 total testing hours on 150+ printers.

Multi-Use Purposes

Manufacturing-ready materials including real ABS, PETG, TOUGH and more.

Advanced Speed

2x times faster printing than leading desktop 3D printers*.

Innovative Design

Built with patented, high-quality components including a heated build chamber, precision dissolvable supports, and dry-sealed material bays.

Method X provides advanced features that other systems can't match. Method X is equipped with a structurally-optimized metal frame running the full length of the body, which offsets flexing. Less flexing means more consistent prints with better part accuracy and fewer failures. The workstation's suite of built-in sensors ensures that your material is stored in its optimal environment—a feature previously only available in industrial 3D printers. Print real, production-grade ABS at 100°C without any warping or cracking. MakerBot Water-Soluble PVA  ensures fast, effortless support removal without compromising part design or dimensional accuracy.

Built Tough.

Ultra-Rigid Metal Frame Construction. A structurally-optimized metal frame runs the full length of the body to offset flexing.

Circulating Heated Chamber.

Control the temperature and quality of every layer with full active heat immersion during the entire duration of the print.

Dual Performance Extruders.

The Dual Performance Extruder system is built from the ground up to accelerate print times and provide dimensional accuracy across every part.

Dry-Sealed Material Bays.

Dry-Sealed Material Bays form a near-perfect seal to keep material free of damaging humidity. A suite of built-in sensors ensures that your material is stored in its optimal environment.

MakerBot ABS for METHOD.

MakerBot ABS is capable of withstanding 15°C higher temperatures, is 26% more rigid, and 12% stronger than modified ABS material formulations for desktop 3D printers.

Dissolvable Support System.

Superior surface finish and unrestricted geometric freedom are paramount to delivering high quality printed parts. MakerBot Water-Soluble PVA ensures fast, effortless support removal.

MAXIMUM INNOVATION. MINIMAL INVESTMENT.
