Unlock carbon fiber

The optional Composite Extruder for Method brings all the benefits of printing Nylon Carbon Fiber parts to the Method 3D printer. Ideal for structural applications and metal replacement parts. Method's unique industrial feature set produces carbon fiber parts with superior three dimensional strength and accuracy

  • Method's Heated Chamber delivers parts that are strong and accurate
  • Outstanding surface finish that hides layer lines thanks to Method's ultra-rigid metal frame.
