MakerBot Method X 3D Printer


A Manufacturing Workstation

The MakerBot METHOD X is a high performance, tinker-free 3D printer designed to handle the most complex 3D printing needs. Featuring a 100‚°C heated chamber, the METHOD X prints a wide range of complex and durable ABS parts and other material types. Delivering uncompromised performance right out-of-the-box, the METHOD prints 2x faster than leading desktop printers and offers a seamless CAD to Part workflow.

Developed from the ground up leveraging industry-leading Stratasys‚® patents, Method features high quality components like a heated build chamber, precision dissolvable supports, and dry-sealed material bays. Perfect for manufacturing tools, end-user parts and functional prototypes. The Method X delivers maximum innovation with minimal investment.
