The MakerBot Method X

The MakerBot METHOD X 3D Printer is one of the most intelligent 3D printers on the market combining industry expertise and technologies from Stratasys®. The MakerBot METHOD X is a 3D printer that produces dimensionally accurate parts that fit on the first try regardless of their complexity. Unlike the first Method, the METHOD X can print real ABS for complex, accurate and durable end-use parts (not just prototypes) that can go from print to immediate use. Let the Method X streamline your workflow and use this ideal tool to create functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and end-use parts.

Print Durable End-Use Parts

3D printing is utilised when production numbers do not justify the time and expense of developing traditional tooling. It can also give designers the freedom to design without geometric constraints, leading to innovative solutions. Unlike the first Method, the MakerBot METHOD X can print production-grade ABS for complex, accurate and durable end-use parts. You can create prototypes or press-fit production floor parts and manufacturing tools that can be used straight out the printer.

More Materials

ABS is MakerBot's toughest material, found in many common products such as LEGOS, computer keys, power-tool housings, and automotive parts. Because MakerBot's ABS doesn't have any of the extra additives added to it like most desktop ABS filaments do, It is capable of withstanding 15°C higher temperatures, is 26% more rigid and 12% stronger. And now the MakerBot METHOD X is compatible with Stratasys® SR-30 soluble support material for unlimited complexity and over hangs.

100°C Heated Chamber

You can print ABS in temperatures of up to 100°C thanks the circulating heated chambers. This means warping and cracking of the filament will be dramatically decreased while dimensional accuracy of your print will be increased.

Dual Extruders & Support System

Use the MakerBot METHOD X Model 1XA & Support 2XA Extruders with MakerBot's production-grade ABS and SR-30 water soluble support material for complex, accurate and durable end-use parts (not just prototypes) that have complex over-hangs. You can create prototypes or press-fit production floor parts and manufacturing tools that can be used straight out the printer.

SCA-1200HT Cleaning Bath

The SCA-1200HT is specifically designed for the removal of soluble support materials on 3D printed parts. The units are compatible with all Stratasys soluble support materials and corresponding build materials in conjunction with all recommended support removal concentrates. Find out more here.

Performance Base Station

The MakerBot Method Base Station is a stand unit for the Method and Method X 3D Printers. The Base Station has many features to ensure your printing experience is smooth and easy, such as large front draws and cupboard space to hold extra filament, spare parts and extra bits and bobs you may need on hand.

Clean Air Module

Safety in the workplace is essential. Clean Air utilizes top of the line HEPA filtration to remove Ultra Fine Particles from the air - leaving your environment as clean - if not cleaner than it was before. Internal testing at MakerBot shows that the MakerBot Clean Air System removes up to 95% of ultra-fine particles compared to printing without the accessory. Click Here to read more.
