This MakerBot MethodX Carbon Fiber reaches these results, straight out of the box. Combining the knowledge of MakerBot and mother company Stratasys, the design of the MethodX Carbon Fiber creates a seamless workflow from CAD-design up to the printed part.
Dual Performance Extruders
With the Performance 1XA Extruder and Support 2AX Extruder, you can 3D print a great variety of materials on the MakerBot MethodX Carbon Fiber. Also the Performace 1A and Support 2A Extruder are compatible with the MethodX Carbon Fiber. And the 1C Composite Extruder allows you to print carbon reinforced nylon materials.
The build volume of 19 x 19 x 19.6 cm (single extrusion - coming soon / 15.2 x 19 x 19.6 for dual extrusion) allows you to combine quality with ease of use. On top of that, the MB Labs Extruder allows you to print third party materials on the MakerBot MethodX Carbon Fiber.
Printing Carbon Parts
The MethodX Carbon Fiber allows you to print carbon reinforced materials easily, thanks to the 1C Composite extruder that is delivered with the printer. The circulated heated chamber allows your prints to be annealed during the printing process.
Circulated Heated Chamber
Another unique feature of this MakerBot MethodX Carbon Fiber is the circulating heated build chamber. Compared to other 3D printers, the circulating heated air within the MakerBot MethodX Carbon Fiber consistently keeps the temperature on 110°C inside the printing chamber. This optimizes the quality of the materials and the dimensions of your prints. The superior Z-layer bonding provides higher strength and better surface finish without warping and curling.
The MethodX Carbon Fiber offers not only a certainty for optimized results, thanks to its 5” LED Touchscreen and WiFi connectivity it also is easy to use. You can start your prints from your desktop, thanks to the WiFi connectivity.
Ultra-Rigid Metal Frame Construction
The MakerBot MethodX Carbon Fiber has a structurally optimized metal frame that runs the full length of the body to offset flexing. Less flexing means more consistent prints with better part accuracy and fewer failures.
