[NEW] SKETCH Large Single-Printer Setup
With a bigger printer comes the ability to print larger projects. From printing different bridge structures for physics, printing the skull of t-rex for biology class, or leveraging 3D printing for problem-solving projects.
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.
