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.

With the MakerBot METHOD X 3D printer and our proprietary RapidRinse™ support achieve incomparable ABS parts with unprecedented ease.

Forget the cumbersome wash tanks and chemicals, RapidRinse™ dissolves in pure tap water so it’s easy to use in just about any environment. You don’t have time to wait around while your print dissolves, so we’ve engineered RapidRinse™ to dissolve faster than PVA and competitive high-temp dissolvable support materials.

*Dissolution time may vary based on part geometry and dissolution methodology.

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.

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.

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

Printer Compatibility

Makerbot METHOD X ABS-R is compatible with the MakerBot METHOD X 3D Printer using the Model 1XA extruder.

Storage & Drying

Makerbot METHOD X ABS-R is vacuum sealed to protect the filament from moisture. When not in use METHOD X ABS-R should be stored away from sunlight in the packaged resealable bag. To maintain the best performance, it is recommended to store METHOD X ABS-R in dry conditions (relative humidity of 15% or less). 

If you notice that the surface quality of your supports is uneven or the color is not consistent, this is a likely indicator that the filament has absorbed too much moisture. Spools of Makerbot METHOD X ABS-R can be dried inside the Makerbot Method X 3D printer.
