PRINT STRONG, HEAT-RESISTANT METAL REPLACEMENT PARTS

Print carbon fiber reinforced nylon and other engineering-grade composite parts with three-dimensional strength and accuracy like never before on METHOD’s unique industrial desktop platform.

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.


SUPERIOR NYLON CARBON FIBER PARTS WITH METHOD

METHOD’s unique industrial feature set produces carbon fiber parts with superior three dimensional strength and accuracy


  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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.


  • INDUSTRIAL RELIABILITY & PRECISION

    Breakthrough technologies leveraging patents from Stratasys® — the worldwide leader in industrial 3D printing.

    Developed from the ground up leveraging industry-leading Stratasys® patents including a heated build chamber, precision dissolvable supports, and dry-sealed material bays.

    Uncompromised performance. From the inside out.

    • 21 ONBOARD SENSORS
    • WIFI CONNECTIVITY
    • REMOTE MONITORING + PRINTING
    • 25 COMPATIBLE CAD FILE TYPES
    • 5" FULL-COLOR CAPACITIVE TOUCH SCREEN
    • OVER 220,000 HOURS OF RELIABILITY TESTING

    Ultra-Rigid Metal Frame Construction

    A structurally-optimized metal frame runs the full length of the body to offset flexing. Less flexing means more consistent prints with better part accuracy and fewer failures.

    Dry-Sealed Material Bays

    Dry-Sealed Material Bays form a near-perfect seal to keep material free of damaging humidity. A suite of built-in sensors provides that your material is stored in its optimal environment—a feature previously only available in industrial 3D printers.

    MakerBot Materials for Method

    PRECISION MATERIALS: Extensively tested by MakerBot for the highest reliability and measurably accurate parts.

    SPECIALTY MATERIALS: For users looking for special materials with advanced properties to push the limits of what's possible.

    Circulating Heated Chamber

    Control the temperature and quality of every layer - not just the first. While heated build plates are effective at reducing warping, Method takes this further with full active heat immersion during the entire duration of the print.

    Dual Performance Extruders

    The Dual Performance Extruder system is built from the ground up to accelerate print times and provide dimensional accuracy across every part.

    Disolvable Support System

    Superior surface finish and unrestricted geometric freedom are paramount to delivering high quality printed parts. MakerBot Water-Soluble PVA ensures fast and effortless support removal without compromising part design or dimensional accuracy.

    MakerBot Water-Soluble PVA provides two key benefits:

    • Unrestricted geometric freedom (large overhangs, cavities, etc.)
    • Superior print quality and surface finish
