UltiMaker Method

UltiMaker Method bridges the divide between desktop prototyping and final part production – at a remarkable price. Combining the speed and accuracy of an industrial 3D printer with the space-saving design of a desktop unit, UltiMaker Method features a circulating heated chamber, ultra-rigid metal frame and dual performance extruders. So easy to use that it doesn’t require an on-site technician, this is the perfect solution for use in an environment where every member of the development team will have a hand in the design and production process.

The printer includes MakerBot CloudPrint™ and is compatible with software from SolidWorks, Autodesk, CATIA, Rhino and TinkerCAD.  It fits into your workflow and is built to facilitate demanding use without demanding a lot of space.

Key features

  • Speed up your design cycle. UltiMaker Method halves the time it takes to produce each part when compared to other popular desktop printers.
  • Reduce your costs. With Method, UltiMaker has reduced the first-year costs of ownership to around a third that of an entry-level industrial 3D printer, making this the perfect complimentary product for an existing 3D printing shop, or a more advanced first step for use in education.
  • The most advanced desktop 3D printer ever developed, with 21 onboard sensors, Wi-Fi connectivity and a heated build chamber. It is compatible with 25 different CAD file types, saving development time by allowing you to skip conversion.

Built to perform

Don’t be fooled by Method’s diminutive dimensions. Its dual print heads achieve dimensional accuracy of between ±0.2mm and ±0.002mm per millimetre of travel while maintaining a filament flow rate of up to 50 cubic millimetres per second. With a maximum build volume of 190 x 190 x 196mm and a choice of layer resolutions spanning 20 to 400 microns, you can prioritise speed for developmental designs, or quality on presentation parts.

Versatile and easy to accommodate

UltiMaker Method supports PLA, Tough PLA and speciality materials today – with more in development, making this a printer that will grow in tandem with your developing demands. It is bundled with MakerBot CloudPrint™ which, thanks to its Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity options, let you control and monitor every print job remotely.
