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.
Developed from the ground up leveraging industry-leading Stratasys® technologies.
UNCOMPROMISED LAYER ADHESION AND PART STRENGTH
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.
SPEED AND DIMENSIONAL ACCURACY
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.
Smart sensors for material management and print protection
Leveraging industrial DNA, each Performance Extruder contains a suite of sensors that detect when material is running low and allows for active jam detection during the entire print duration. It’s like autonomous protection for your print—and your printer.
Greater torque with a 19:1 dual-drive gear ratio
From great strength comes great performance. The 19:1 dual-drive gear ratio keeps material loaded and ready for reliable material extrusion at every layer.
Lengthened thermal core with less than 60-second heat up time
A lengthened thermal core and a fast start up time ensure that materials are ready to go when your ideas are.
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
Dissolvable 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

Swipe, tap, print. With the built-in 5″ full-color capacitive touchscreen display, receive up-to-the-second status of your current print job and navigate menus in the most intuitive way you already know—with your finger.
SENSORS + CONNECTIVITY
A network of intelligent sensors embedded throughout the printer gives you full control while making material and print management easy and accessible.
SPRING STEEL BUILD PLATE
A precision-calibrated print base and spring steel build plate provide true flatness for unyielding part accuracy.
SMART SPOOLS AND THE SMART ASSIST MATERIAL LOADER
Insert the tip of your material, and the printer does the rest. With Smart Spools, monitor material details including color and quantity remaining directly within MakerBot Print.
From the inside out.
