MakerBot METHOD X 3D Printer - Carbon Fiber Edition
MakerBot 3D Printer Carbon Fiber Edition
The carbon fiber edition printer is used for designing complex 3D designs. It retains all the features of the standard METHOD X model but includes all the materials needed to use carbon fiber materials, making this the ideal printer to create engineering-grade composite parts. The 3D printer is capable of creating strong parts from rough plastics and fiber-filled composites. With dual extruders, it prints with composite and soluble supports at the same time.
- The METHOD X features a structurally optimized metal frame that runs the full length of the body to offset flexing.
- Combined with the 212°F (100°C) enclosed build chamber, which circulates the heat, the METHOD X can print a wide variety of complex and durable ABS parts.
- The Dual Performance Extruder system accelerates print times and provides dimensional accuracy across every part.
- The sensor feature detects when material is running low and allows for active jam detection during the entire print duration.
- The spring steel build plate of the printer provides a true flat surface for better part accuracy and a reduced chance of failure.
- The 5" display has a 640 x 480 resolution and supports touchscreen controls which ables to navigate menus and settings as well as monitor the print jobs.

METHOD CARBON FIBER EDITION IS BUILT TO LAST
A structurally optimized metal frame runs the full length of the body of the Method Carbon Fiber Edition. This ultra-rigid metal frame was designed with the sole purpose of offsetting flexing, less flexing results in more consistent prints, more accurate parts, and fewer failures overall.
ACHIEVE UNCOMPROMISED LAYER ADHESION AND PART STRENGTH USING CARBON-FIBER INFUSED NYLON
Featuring a 60°C circulating heated chamber, Method Carbon Fiber Edition allows users to control the temperature and quality of every layer. While heated build plates are effective at reducing first layer warping, the Method Carbon Fiber Edition takes this approach one step further with full active heat immersion – providing even temperatures for the entire duration of the print job. This allows better layer adhesion for nylon, strengthening your printed parts even more.
SMART FEATURES HELP TO REDUCE COST AND SAVE TIME ON SMALL PRODUCTION MANUFACTURING RUNS
The dual performance extruder system utilized by the Method Carbon Fiber Edition was built from the ground up with the goal of accelerating print times and providing higher dimensional accuracy across every part. Built-in smart sensors for material management and print protection automatically detect and alert the user when materials are running low and allow for active jam detection during the entire print duration. Other features such as the Spring Steel build plate, which easily pops out to allow users to queue up their next print, and the 5” full-color capacitive touch screen offers users a highly intuitive and seamless user experience.
