MakerBot Method Printer


MakerBot Method introduces an entirely new category of 3D Printing defined by INDUSTRIAL RELIABILITY + PRECISION, FASTEST CAD-TO-PART, and MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE + MINIMAL INVESTMENT. We call it Performance 3D Printing.

INDUSTRIAL RELIABILITY + PRECISION: Consistent print results that match design dimensions.


  • Circulating Heated Chamber
  • Ultra-Rigid Metal Frame
  • Dry-Sealed Material Bays
  • Dual Performance Extruders (with tech borrowed from SSYS patents)
  • Precision PVA Dissolvable Supports


FASTEST CAD TO PART: Up to 2x faster than desktop 3D printers*


  • Save days or weeks over conventional outsourcing- Additive Manufacturing, CNC, etc.
  • Enables seamless printing without tinkering.


MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE + MINIMAL INVESTMENT: About the first-year cost of ownership of an entry-level industrial 3D printer with no technician required.


  • Accelerate product development
  • Ensure parts are how you want them before sending out for 3rd party production
  • Provide designers direct access to 3D printing so they reach decisions faster
  • Easy deployment and operation at the enterprise level
  • Low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
  • Reclaim development time with MakerBot no-hassle 3D printing platform


*Based on internal print speed testing compared to popular desktop 3D printers when using the same layer height and infill density settings. Dependent upon object geometry.
