      VECT THERMAL REGULATION SYSTEM 0:06

      VECT THERMAL REGULATION SYSTEM

      Patented VECT™ 65 Thermal Regulation evenly heats and controls the print environment leading to parts that are 2x stronger on the z-axis, and 2x more accurate across the board. (Variable Environmental Controlled Temperature)

      Maximum temperature: 65° C
      DUAL PERFORMANCE EXTRUDERS 0:19

      DUAL PERFORMANCE EXTRUDERS

      Featuring lengthened thermal cores, optimized torque, and an industry-leading sensor suite, Performance Extruders maximize material flow rate at high speeds while providing consistent and reliable extrusion across every layer.

      PRECISION DISSOLVING PVA SUPPORTS

      Superior surface finish and unrestricted geometric freedom are paramount to delivering high quality printed parts. MakerBot Water-Soluble PVA ensures fast and effortless support removal without compromising part design or dimensional accuracy. 

      MakerBot Water-Soluble PVA provides two key benefits:
      - Unrestricted geometric freedom (large overhangs, cavities, etc.) 
      - Superior print quality and surface finish
      ULTRA-RIGID METAL FRAME CONSTRUCTION 0:15

      ULTRA-RIGID METAL FRAME CONSTRUCTION

      A structurally-optimized metal frame runs the full length of the body to offset flexing. Less flexing means more consistent prints with better part accuracy and fewer failures.

      SMART SENSORS + CONNECTIVITY

      A network of intelligent sensors embedded throughout the printer gives you full control while making material and print management easy and accessible.
      Dry-Sealed Material Bays 0:15

      Dry-Sealed Material Bays

      Dry-Sealed Material Bays form a near-perfect seal to keep material free of damaging humidity. A suite of built-in sensors provides that your material is stored in its optimal environment—a feature previously only available in industrial 3D printers.

      SEAMLESS CAD TO PART WORKFLOW

      Streamline your workflow with automated calibration, material loading, spool detection, and more. METHOD provides a seamless CAD to part workflow with SolidWorks, Fusion 360, and Onshape plug-ins.

      CLEAN AIR™ SYSTEM

      Breathe easy and keep your learning environment pristine even when 3D printing engineering materials with smart HEPA filtration on the Clean Air System for METHOD.
