The MakerBot Method X is perfect for engineers making end-use parts, manufacturing tools or functional prototypes. Able to print real, production-grade ABS with a 100°C temperature-controlled build chamber using Stratasys technology, the quality of the parts you get from this machine outstrip those from competitors that use modified ABS material. Parts from the MakerBot Method X are the best you can get at this price point, and they are produced in a fraction of time it takes with traditional techniques. The machine also utilises Stratasys’ SR-30 soluble support material for greater geometry and design freedom. The Method X takes all the best elements of its predecessor and further improves on them, offering engineers best in class accuracy and durability.
The MakerBot ABS material used on the Method X can withstand 15°C higher temperatures than modified ABS materials that other desktop 3D printers use. It is also 26% more rigid and up to 12% stronger than those materials. The SR-30 soluble support material, combined with ABS and the 100°C chamber results in strong, complex parts with a superior surface finish.
The improved Method X has many of the same benefits as the original Method, such as an ultra-rigid metal frame, dual extruders and dry-sealed material bays. It is compatible with Solidworks, Autodesk Fusion 360 and Inventor.
