Expect uncompromised high-performance right out-of-the-box with MakerBot METHOD X, tinker-free 3D printer. Designed to handle the most complex 3D printing needs, METHOD X features a 110°C heated chamber and prints a wide range of complex and durable ABS parts. METHOD X is compatible with other materials, and prints 2x faster than leading desktop printers and offers a seamless CAD to Part workflow.
NOTE: 3D Universe is authorized to sell this product in the United States of America, only.
Developed from the ground up leveraging industry-leading Stratasys® patents, METHOD X features high quality components like a heated build chamber, precision dissolvable supports, and dry-sealed material bays. Perfect for manufacturing tools, end-user parts and functional prototypes. METHOD X delivers maximum innovation with minimal investment.
Print complex and durable ABS parts with a 110°C heated chamber for end-use assemblies and manufacturing tools.MakerBot ABS for METHOD is capable of withstanding 15°C higher temperatures, is 26% more rigid, and 12% stronger than modified desktop 3D printer ABS material formulations.
Print real, production-grade ABS at 110°C with no warping or cracking supported by Stratasys® SR-30 soluble material for unlimited geometric freedom.
* Based on internal testing of injection molded specimens of METHOD X ABS compared to ABS from a leading desktop 3D printer competitor.
Prototype with production-grade ABS to achieve part properties close to injection molded parts. Print dimensionally accurate assemblies and validate your designs to get your products to market faster—all at a fraction of industrial 3D printing costs.

Nothing will impact your 3D printing results like the kind of filament you use.
Good filament is highly consistent in diameter, is wound evenly onto the spool
with just the right amount of tension, and will not tangle when being unwound.
3D Universe offers a wide range of high-quality filaments to choose from.
We provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all filament we sell. If
you have any problems, just send back the unused portion of the spool for a full refund.
