MakerBot Method is a desktop-sized 3D printer targeted to the professional market. It has been developed by Makerbot, an American manufacturer acquired by Stratasys in 2013. It is a compact machine packed with a lot of smart features generally found in industrial printers. It comes with a fully enclosed, heated build chamber, intelligent sensors, Wi-Fi connectivity, remote control, onboard camera, and more.

Makerbot Method is a dual-extrusion 3D printer capable of creating high-quality products with a variety of performance materials. It ensures engineering-grade precision and allows the production of durable functional parts and end-use tools made with ABS and other specialty filaments. Also, it supports multi-material and multi-color printing. It lets you print dissolvable supports effortless. The printer gives you full control over the printing process ensuring a high level of repeatability. It can be easily integrated with a range of commercial CAD software.

Print quality

The Makerbot Method can print at 20 microns granting an overall dimensional accuracy of ± 0.2 mm. It also ensures vertical layer uniformity. It produces highly-detailed, ready-to-use models with water-soluble supports for hands-free support removal.

The printer works at twice the speed of standard desktop devices. Tested for up to 300,000 hours, it grants extreme reliability.

Unlike many other FDM printers, the Makerbot Method has a heated print bed and a closed print chamber that can heat up to 100°C. This means it can reliably print with ABS-type materials.
