Industrial 3D printing with the MakerBot METHOD Series

3D Printing Solutions, an Australian owned and operated 3D printing retailer today announced their resellership with MakerBot to supply their range of high performance 3D printers.

Founded in 2009, MakerBot was one of the first companies to make 3D printing accessible and affordable with their first 3D printer, the Cupcake CNC. In 2010, they became the first company to present a 3D printer at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Now, 3D printing is its own category there with a myriad of 3D printing companies in attendance each year. In 2013, MakerBot were acquired by Stratasys and today are focused on developing hardware solutions for the business and education sector.

Engineered as an automated, tinker-free industrial 3D printing system, the flagship MakerBot METHOD X 3D printer includes industrial features such as a 100°C Heated Chamber, Dry-Sealed Material Bays, Dual Performance Extruders, Soluble Supports, and an Ultra-Rigid Metal Frame. METHOD X’s automation and industrial technologies create a controlled printing environment so professionals can design, test, and iterate faster.

"Every day we see an increasing demand across mining, automotive and manufacturing sectors to 3D print functional end use parts in-house. In addition to strength and accuracy, many customers have specific requirements such as UV resistance, flame retardance or specific chemical resistance. As you start to require these high temperature plastics like PC-ABS, a controlled heated and circulating chamber becomes critical to print sizeable components without warping. By combining patented Stratasys technologies and MakerBots accessibility and ease of use, the MakerBot Method X as an exciting and unique 3D printing platform for advanced industrial materials. The MakerBots LABS open filament program and pre-qualification partnership with leading filament manufacturers like Polymaker will certainly unleash new high performance applications for industrial and research customers.- Matt Tyson, Marketing & Applications Specialist 3D Printing Solutions

The MakerBot LABS Experimental Extruder for METHOD easily swaps into the model material slot of METHOD and METHOD X for unlimited material testing options and optimization.  In addition to advanced setting support and modular hardware for unlimited experimentation, MakerBot are also working with several leading filament companies such as JABIL, Mitsubishi Chemical and Polymaker to pre-qualify industrial materials for the MakerBot LABS extruder. 

Combined with MakerBot LABS, the MakerBot METHOD and METHOD X deliver one of the most versatile industrial 3D printing platforms in its price point.
