METHOD V1 DRAFT FOR NEW DESCRIPTION

PROFESSIONAL 3D PRINTING AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

PROTOTYPING WITH NYLON MADE EASY

MAXIMIZE OUTPUT. MINIMIZE TOLERANCE.

VECT™ 65 Thermal Regulation gives you 2X the dimensional accuracy in real polymers and composites. 

Print continuously for hours, days, or weeks, thanks to METHOD’s unmatched industrial build quality.

Configurable to meet your needs, METHOD’s compact footprint allows for desktop, benchtop, and racked setups.

BENEFITS OF NYLON

WHY ITS GOOD AT PRINTING NYLON

PROTOTYPE IN THE SAME MATERIAL AS YOUR PRODUCTION PARTS

In addition to Nylon, the Method is set up to print PLA, PETG, and many more. 

Plug in the LABS GEN 2 Experimental Extruder for unbridled 3rd party material printing.

ClimateSeal™ Filament Bays protect materials from the elements bag to print with pristine quality.

 


UNLOCK CARBON FIBER WITH THE COMPOSITE EXTRUDER

The Composite Extruder for Method brings all the benefits of printing Nylon Carbon Fiber Parts to the MakerBot Method 3D printer. Ideal for structural applications and metal replacement parts.

STRONG, HEAT-RESISTANT METAL REPLACEMENT PARTS

Carbon fiber reinforced nylon is optimized for high strength, stiffness, and heat resistance making it ideal for structural applications and metal replacements. 

  • Excellent strength to weight ratio - 110 MPa TS - for lightweighting applications such as robotic end effectors
  • Engineering-grade stiffness - 7600 MPa Tensile Modulus - for structural applications such as vehicular brackets and inspection gauges

  • High heat resistance under load - 184°C HDT - for optimal under-hood and tooling applications

SUPERIOR NYLON CARBON FIBER PARTS WITH METHOD

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 accuratey
  • Outstanding surface finish that hides layer lines thanks to METHOD’s Ultra-Rigid Metal Frame.
  • Print the most complex geometries including internal cavities with soluble support, or use breakaway support for faster print times.
  • METHOD’s sealed filament bays help keep the material dry, resulting in better print quality and reliability, and METHOD’s pre-print spool drying feature allows for the recovery of oversaturated filament.
