The New LABS GEN 2 Experimental Extruder allows you to print more abrasive 3rd-party composites and polymers for longer thanks to upgraded hardened-steel components.
Quickly swap between a model extruder for highly repeatable, dimensionally accurate parts with MakerBot Materials, to the LABS GEN 2 Experimental Extruder for dozens of verified third-party material options and unlimited open-materials experimentation.
The MakerBot LABS Experimental Extruder for METHOD is an experimental product and not covered under MakerCare or warranty.
With the number of third-party composites available on the market today, we decided to optimize the LABS GEN 2 Experimental Extruder for some of the most abrasive materials available - like Carbon Fiber and ESD composites. Now you can print more composites and polymers with confidence.
With MakerBot METHOD, we’ve engineered purpose-built toolheads for different material groups and applications, easily swappable in seconds and no tools required. Get the best prints in a range of over 20+ materials with the MakerBot METHOD professional 3D printing platform.
