MAKERBOT MATERIALS FOR METHOD X

MakerBot Materials for Method are manufactured to exacting diameter and quality specifications. Shipped in a vacuum-sealed metalized polyester bag, quality is preserved right up until opening.

The Smart Spool™ provides valuable information including material type, color, and amount remaining via an RFID chip directly to MakerBot Print, while a built-in desiccant absorbs any moisture exposure during the material loading process.

MAKERBOT ABS

REAL, PRODUCTION- GRADE ABS FOR MANUFACTURING APPLICATIONS

ABS is one of the most popular materials for injection molded consumer products due to its clean surface finish, durability, and heat resistance. METHOD X can print manufacturing-grade ABS without warping and without weakening additives thanks to its 100°C heated chamber.

END-USE PARTS

Get dimensionally-accurate, production-grade, real ABS end-use parts at a fraction of traditional manufacturing costs. METHOD reduces costs and saves time for small production manufacturing runs.
8.3.4

MANUFACTURING TOOLS

Prototype with production-grade ABS to achieve part properties close to injection molded parts. Print dimensionally accurate assemblies and validate your designs to get your products to market faster—all at a fraction of industrial 3D printing costs.
8.3.4

FUNCTIONAL PROTOTYPES

Create durable, real ABS parts for the production floor. Print dimensionally accurate jigs, fixtures, and end-effectors that fit seamlessly with existing components.

MAKERBOT ASA

UV AND MOISTURE RESISTANCE FOR DEMANDING OUTDOOR APPLICATIONS.

ASA combines the qualities of ABS with the added benefit of UV resistance and additional moisture resistance making it ideal for equipment exposed to sunlight and rain over long periods of time – such as products for the agriculture, transportation, and power and utility industries.

MAKERBOT PC-ABS & PC-ABS FIRE RETARDANT

PRINT DURABLE AND HEAT-RESISTANT PROTOTYPES AND END-USE PARTS

PC-ABS is a strong, engineering-grade material that has both a high heat resistance and high impact resistance. When ABS
does not provide a high enough impact resistance, but high heat resistance is still required, PC-ABS is a great alternative, due
to the addition of polycarbonate.

PC-ABS FLAME RETARDANT

PC-ABS FR is a flame retardant version of PC-ABS. Flame
retardance is a common requirement for materials used in
the production passenger carrying vehicles such as rail cars
and automobiles and airplanes. The benefit being that FR
extinguishes flames preventing the spread of fire.

END-USE PARTS

Short-run production with PC-ABS can be achieved for extremely low-volume products with the benefit of avoiding costly tooling. These parts can permanently replace injection molded pieces, or temporarily supplement them in the case of supply-chain disruption

STRATASYS® SR-30

DISSOLVABLE SUPPORT MATERIAL FROM STRATASYS.

SR-30 is a proprietary material developed by Stratasys to work seamlessly with ABS, ASA, and various other high-temp materials. Because of this focused development, using SR-30 with these typically more challenging materials can yield exceptional results not possible with PVA which is very difficult to use with ABS.
