MakerBot METHOD for Business

MakerBot METHOD for Business is tailored to the needs of fast-paced and demanding organizations looking to eliminate the cost of downtime and prevent missed deadlines. Designed to keep your teams moving seamlessly and without interruption, only MakerBot METHOD for Business includes our most advanced extended warranty package — MakerCare Platinum Protection.

MakerBot Method for Business

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.

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 produce precise parts.

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

Unrestricted Geometric Freedom

Dissolvable Support System 1-2

Superior surface finish and unrestricted geometric freedom are paramount to delivering high quality printed parts. MakerBot’s Precision Dissolving PVA enables fast and easy support removal without compromising part design or dimensional accuracy.

Precision Dissolving PVA provides two key benefits:
● Unrestricted geometric freedom (large overhangs, cavities, etc)
● Superior print quality and surface finish
