MakerBot Method

WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE MAKERBOT METHOD?

The Method would have been designed to bridge the gap between Stratasys’ expensive industrial solutions and MakerBot’s small office machines. If we look more closely at its technical specifications, we see that it has a print volume of 190 x 190 x 196 mm, a printing speed of 500 mm / second and a layer resolution of 20 to 400 microns.

The machine has a heated chamber; the manufacturer specifies that this heat circulates actively throughout the printing. It would offer greater dimensional accuracy, better adhesion of layers and increased strength of parts. As for its double extruder, it would combine two materials or two colors. This is not the first double-extrusion model of the brand – it had already launched the Replicator 2X. Among the available filaments are PLA, PETG, MakerBot Tough and PVA. MakerBot says it will offer more materials in the coming months.

INTEGRATED SENSORS TO BETTER CONTROL PRINTING

The manufacturer explains that each extruder is equipped with sensors that can detect when the machine is out of filament but also the possible risk of jamming. He states that it is “a kind of protection for your current printing but also for your 3D printer”. Note also the presence of two trays below the printing plate to keep the filament coils dry; a series of additional built-in sensors would ensure that the material is stored in an optimal environment, preventing any problems with too much moisture. Finally, a full-color 5-inch touch screen and WiFi connectivity facilitate the printing process.

The double extrusion system is designed to accelerate print times by ensuring dimensional accuracy for each part.

INTELLIGENT SENSORS FOR MATERIAL MANAGEMENT AND INSURANCE OF PRINT FAILURES

Drawing on the DNA of the industrial 3D printer, each Performance Extruder contains sensors that know when there is little material left and can detect jams during the print run. It’s a protection.

BEST COUPLE WITH A DOUBLE DRIVE RATIO OF 19: 1

The 19: 1 double drive ratio keeps the material load and prepares it for reliable extrusion of material to each layer.

LONG THERMAL CORE WITH HEATING TIME IN 60 SECONDS

With an extended thermal core and faster start-up time, the materials are ready for use as soon as you have an idea.

MANUFACTURE SURFACE

  • Steel worktop and non-slip surface

The precision of the calibration of the printing base and the steel production plate provide a truly flat surface that guarantees the precision of the parts.

HARDWARE STORAGE

  • Hermetic material compartments and humidity and temperature sensors.

The hermetic material compartments form an almost perfect airtightness that makes it possible to preserve the purity of the materials and to protect them from moisture which could damage them. A set of integrated sensors ensures the storage of your materials in an optimal environment: a capacity that was reserved for industrial 3D printers.

A network of 21 smart sensors integrated in the printer allows total control of printing as well as materials and printing management.

MATERIALS SUPPORTED

Constructed to exact diameter and quality specifications and delivered in a vacuum sealed Mylar bag to preserve quality until opened. The all-new Smart Spool ™ system remotely sends all related material information, including color and quantity, to the MakerBot Print software for materials management.

Welcome to the era of intelligent materials.

PRECISION MATERIALS

In-depth testing by MakerBot for maximum reliability that guarantees high precision parts.

  • MAKERBOT PRECISION SOLID: Print durable, durable prototypes and fasteners that withstand twice as much impact as ABS.
  • MAKERBOT PRECISION PLA: easy to use and ideal for developing basic designs, details such as sharp corners and perfectly printed edges, with almost no deformation or delamination.
  • WATER SOLUBLE PRECISION PVA MAKERBOT: PVA dissolving precision guarantees the fast and effortless removal of media for your most complex prints.

SPECIAL MATERIALS

For users who are looking for particular materials with advanced properties that can push the boundaries of what is possible.

MAKERBOT PET G

High strength and durability combined with chemical and moisture resistance, and excellent mechanical properties.

CONNECTIVITY

  • Wi-Fi
  • Ethernet
  • USB drive

POWER REQUIRED

  • 100 – 240 V
  • 4 A, 50 to 60 Hz
  • 400 W max.

HEATED SPEAKER

Check the quality and temperature of each layer, not just the first. The heated worktop is effective at minimizing deformations, but Method goes further than that with full active heat immersion throughout the print.

ADHESION OF PRINT LAYERS AND PARTS OF UNBEATABLE STRENGTH

ULTRA-RIGID METAL FRAME

SOLID CONSTRUCTION

An optimized metal frame follows the length of the case to reduce bending. Fewer folds means more consistent prints, more accurate parts with fewer errors.
