TRUSTED BY INDUSTRY LEADERS

“The dimensional accuracy that we're getting with the Method compared to any Industrial 3D Printer is as good or better.”

MARCO PERRY, CEO & FOUNDER, PENSAWATCH THE VIDEO

“The quality of [3D prints] we’ve been getting on Method have been top notch, as much as we would expect from a [3D] printer in the $50k range.”

DON LEHMAN, HEAD OF PRODUCT DESIGN, STARRYWATCH THE VIDEO

“Method's accuracy is excellent. We've put it to the test by printing even the tiniest parts, and every time, they've come together seamlessly.”

ALBERT KWAK, INDUSTRIAL DESIGNER, SMART DESIGNWATCH THE VIDEO

METHOD Applications
