“We are thrilled to receive such an overwhelmingly positive response from our early customers,” said Nadav Goshen, CEO, MakerBot. “As one of the leading product design firms in New York, PENSA understands better than most the need for reliable rapid prototyping. METHOD was engineered to enable product teams like those at PENSA to become more agile and help them speed up their innovation processes.”
METHOD carefully controls the 3D print environment to produce repeatable and consistent parts, vertical layer uniformity, and cylindricity. This level of dimensional accuracy and reliability are made possible by leveraging industry-leading Stratasys® patents, including a circulating heated chamber, precision PVA water soluble supports, and dry-sealed material bays.
“The reality when it comes to physical models is that it is just a step in the process. The real result for our clients is that it is a product that sells well for them,” explains Perry. “The fact is that we rely heavily on our tools, just like a chef would rely heavily on a sharp knife. If a chef is thinking about how the knife works, he is not thinking about the meal he has to make. For me, the best tool is one where you do not have to think about how it works. We have to take it as a given that the product will work well because we are focused on the whole picture. The reliability of the METHOD really helps with that—it’s not even a thought. You just run it.”
