UltiMaker Method X Carbon Fiber Edition

From the pioneers of the desktop 3D printer comes an industrial-grade, carbon fibre 3D printing machine that fits into an office environment. The UltiMaker Method X Carbon Fibre edition takes a top-of-the range Method X 3D printer and pairs it with a revolutionary new extruder that has been redesigned to work with UltiMaker’s new Nylon Carbon Fibre material. Engineers that want to take advantage of carbon fibre to make strong, lightweight parts need look no further. A heated build chamber that can reach 110 degrees Celcius helps increase the strength of the part, and the machine is flexible enough to print in other popular materials as well.

Key features

  • Use UltiMaker’s new carbon fibre material to replace metal, reducing cost and weight, for applications such as jigs and fixtures, tooling parts and structural components
  • Create strong parts easily thanks to a heated build chamber that can reach a temperature of 110°C
  • An industrial-grade machine that can achieve a dimensional accuracy of ± 0.2mm
  • Use RapidRinse or SR-30 soluble support to create complex geometries
  • Use breakaway support on your prints for faster build times
  • MakerBot CloudPrint™ software makes it easy to import your designs directly from CAD
  • Smooth surface finish is enabled by a rigid metal frame
  • Filament bays are sealed, which improves print quality by keeping the filament dry

Wide range of materials

Buy the machine for the carbon fibre support, then take advantage of the other wide range of materials on offer. Once you have experienced the weight savings and increased strength that carbon fibre offers, you have a smorgasbord of other materials to choose from, such as ASA, ABS-R, PC-ABS and PC-ABS FR, along with RapidRinse or SR-30 support material.

MakerBot CloudPrint™

Use MakerBot CloudPrint™ to print to the machine directly from CAD software such as Solidworks, Autodesk Fusion 360, Autodesk Inventor and Onshape. As this is a cloud solution, the job can be started from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.
