Overall the METHOD X has proven itself to be a formidable competitor in its class. The system’s phenomenal ABS printing capabilities make it a great choice for prosumers and professional users seeking a hassle-free 3D printing experience.
Founded in 2009, MakerBot has made a name for itself in the professional-grade FFF 3D printing space with its suite of extrusion-based machines. MakerBot’s flagship product line is the METHOD 3D printer range, comprising the older METHOD, the newer METHOD X, and the higher-performance METHOD X Carbon Fiber Edition.
As the mid-range offering, the METHOD X combines a high-temperature dual extrusion setup, a fully-enclosed build volume, and an impressive set of engineering material capabilities for functional prototyping and end-use production. The printer is built for both commercial and educational use, granting users the ability to print with a wide variety of high-performance filaments. This includes fiber-reinforced composites and Ultrafuse 316L Stainless Steel, enabled by the LABS Experimental Extruder.
