Print up to 2x faster than desktop 3D printers and accelerate your agile design process. Method screams past desktop 3D printers while simultaneously providing dimensional accuracy and industrial 3D printer reliability.


Dual Performance Extruders for Speed and Dimensional Accuracy

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


Optimized Material Storage

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

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
