MakerBot Method 3D Printer

The MakerBot method is the first ‘performance’ 3D printer, bridging the gap between industrial 3D printing accuracy and desktop 3D printer accessibility. The new MakerBot Method offers users uncompromised layer adhesion and part strength, thanks to it’s heated build chamber.

The circulating heated chamber utilises two heat exchangers with active blowers to fully envelop each print with hot air during the entire print duration. This new MakerBot feature allows your parts to have consistent dimensional accuracy and optimal part strength.

The Method allows you to 3D print almost any geometry your mind can think of, by utilising best in class water-soluble PVA support.

The printer boasts:

  • 21 strategically placed sensors
  • 5 inch capacitive touchscreen
  • onboard camera
  • intelligent material monitoring
  • MakerBot Print software (supports over 25 native CAD file types)
