Dual Gripper Mount1
Material: KIMYA ABS Carbon Fiber
Outdoor Light Cover
Material: Mitsubishi Chemical DURABIO™
Electronics Assembly Fixture
Material: JABIL PETG ESD
CNC Chip Fan
Material: Polymaker Polycarbonate
- ABS CARBON FIBER from KIMYA. An ABS composite material with 30% chopped carbon fiber for improved stiffness and lower weight.
- PETG ESD from JABIL. An easy processing, Electrostatic Dissipative (ESD) product for printing parts that meet sensitive electronics and could be damaged by electrostatic discharge.
- DURABIO™ from Mitsubishi Chemical. Bio-based, BPA free resin. It combines PMMA’s transparency with a higher chemical and scratch resistance compared to polycarbonate (PC).
- PC-FR from Polymaker PolyMax™. A flame retardant polycarbonate (PC) filament (UL94V-0/1.5 mm) displaying excellent toughness, strength and heat resistance.
AND MANY MORE TO COME
A growing list of partners are working to qualify filament for use with the MakerBot LABS and the Experimental Extruder.
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.
Built on the same industrial architecture as the Performance Extruder for METHOD, the Experimental Extruder brings power and precision with the added benefit of interchangeable nozzle assemblies.
The MakerBot LABS Experimental Extruder for METHOD is an experimental product and not covered under MakerCare or warranty.
