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

- ± 0.2mm or ± 0.002 mm per mm of travel – whichever is greater. Based on internal testing of selected geometries.
- Compared to popular desktop 3D printers when using the same layer height and infill density settings. Speed advantage dependent upon object geometry and material.
- Combined total test hours of METHOD and METHOD X (full system and subsystem testing) expected to be completed around shipping of METHOD X.
- Based on internal testing of injection-molded specimens of MakerBot ABS compared to ABS from a leading desktop 3D printer competitor. Tensile testing was performed according to ASTM D638 and HDT testing according to ASTM D648.
