CARBON FIBER MADE ACCESSIBLE

Replace metal parts and assemblies with 3D printed Carbon Fiber and dissolvable supports

DUAL EXTRUSION COMPOSITE 3D PRINTING FOR ADVANCED GEOMETRIES

  • Patented VECT™ 110 (Variable Environmental Controlled Temperature) Thermal Regulation evenly heats and controls the print environment leading to parts that are 2x stronger on the z-axis, and 2x more accurate across the board.
  • The 1C Composite Extruder is engineered, optimized, and tested to withstand abrasive composite materials for maximum lifespan.
  • Dual extruders with water-soluble support material allow you to print in unlimited geometries and simplify your workflow.

STRONG, HEAT-RESISTANT METAL REPLACEMENT PARTS

  • Excellent strength to weight ratio – 110 MPa TS – for lightweighting applications such as robotic end effectors.
  • Engineering-grade stiffness with high heat resistance under load for parts that perform.
  • Composites ranging from Nylon 12 Carbon Fiber to ABS Kevlar give you flexibility on your project and rigidness in your part.
  • Print Metals, Composites, and Polymers and infinite 3rd party options with 6-in-1 Modular Performance Extruders for METHOD X.

IMPORT YOUR COMPLEX DESIGNS, HIT PRINT IN CARBON FIBER.

  • Design in your favorite CAD software, then prep, print, and monitor remotely from CloudPrint™.
  • Quickly change from production composites to modeling materials with the hands-free SmartAssist™ Material Loading System.
  • Spring Steel Build Plate is durable enough to withstand thousands of prints in abrasive composites and the print pops off cleanly with a simple flex.

360° OF 110°C

CIRCULATING HEATED CHAMBER

Many desktop 3D printers use heated build plates to try and regulate their environment and prevent warping on the print bed. This improves adhesion to the build plate for the first layer and… that’s about it. METHOD uses the patented Circulating Heated Chamber to rapidly warm the entire build chamber up to 110°C providing optimal print conditions from first layer to last. The result is a degree of dimensional accuracy typically reserved for industrial 3D printers (±0.007 in), at the base layer and everywhere else.

AUTOLOADING FOR QUICK MATERIAL CHANGE

SMART ASSIST MATERIAL LOADING

Material loading on 3D printers can be a pain. METHOD’s material loading system is designed to take complexity and frustration out of the equation. Just drop the Smart Spool into the Dry Sealed Material Bays located on the front of the printer, and feed the filament tip into the slot, close the drawer and the printer loads the filament all the way up and into the extruders so that it’s ready to print.

PRECISION LEVELED WITH QUICK PART RELEASE

MAGNETIC SPRING STEEL BUILD PLATE ON MACHINED ALUMINUM BASE

The build surface is another crucial element in FDM 3D printing. Whether you’re printing in ABS, Nylon, or just PLA, an uneven surface can lead to a warped print. METHOD combines two elements to create a unique solution. First is an aluminum base plate, machined and factory-calibrated for extreme flatness. Second is a spring steel build plate that magnetically conforms to the base plate via a dozen high-strength magnets. This not only provides flatness, but also makes print removal a breeze. Just pick up the build plate and flex it to pop the print off.

TWO TOOLHEADS. INFINITE POSSIBILITIES.

DUAL PERFORMANCE EXTRUDERS

When it comes to FDM 3D printing, the toolhead or extruder is one of the most important features. Based on an industrial-grade design from Stratasys, METHOD’s extruder was designed from the ground up with the professional in mind. With an all new lengthened thermal core, dual drive gears with 19:1 gear ratio of torque, and MakerBot’s industry-leading intelligent sensor suite, METHOD comes with significantly improved print quality and speed.

EXCLUSIVE TRAINING SESSION

While MakerBot 3D printers are intuitive, sometimes it’s good to get real insight from someone who has used the platform extensively. That’s why with MakerCare you get access to a 1-hour training session with a certified MakerBot Support Engineer where they will walk you through basic set up, usage, and bonus tips and tricks, while answering any questions you may have along the way.

HOT SWAP

Machine downtime is not ideal for any business. You’ve got projects that need to get done and we understand. MakerCare has your back with hot swap. If your printer goes down, our support engineers will get you back up and running asap. Just call or email to get the process started. If the problem can be resolved with an expedited replacement  part or quick setting change we’ll do that. If the printer needs to be sent back, we’ll ship out a replacement machine - even before you’ve sent yours back - so you can be back up and running in no time.

Replacement Parts diagramReplacement Parts diagram

REPLACEMENT OF WEAR OR DAMAGED PARTS

Do you have a wear component or a damaged part that you can fix without packing up the printer and sending it in? In addition to defective parts already covered by the standard warranty, MakerCare provides part replacement on both natural wear and accidental damage so you can get back up and running even faster.
