The MAKERBOT Method X is a high-performance, tinker-free 3D printer that was designed to handle the most complex 3D printing needs. Method X is capable of printing a wide range of durable real-ABS parts and other material types right out of the box. In addition to its material capabilities, Method X also features high-quality components including dual performance extruders, precision dissolvable supports, and dry-sealed material. Developed from the ground up leveraging industry-leading Stratasys® patents, METHOD X features high-quality components like a heated build chamber, precision dissolvable supports, and dry-sealed material bays. Perfect for manufacturing tools, end-use parts, and functional prototypes. METHOD X delivers maximum innovation with minimal investment.


  • Heated chamber delivers stronger manufacturing-grade parts.
  • Seamless CAD integration with Autodesk Fusion 360, Autodesk Inventor, and Solid works
  • A structurally optimized metal frame runs the full length of Method X's body. This ultra-rigid metal frame was designed with the sole purpose of offsetting flexing, less flexing results in more consistent prints, more accurate parts, and fewer failures overall.
  • 100°C circulating heated chamber, Method allows users to control the temperature and quality of every layer.
  • Dual performance extruder system utilized by Method 3D Printers was built from the ground up with the goal of accelerating print times and providing higher dimensional accuracy across every part. 
  • Built-in smart sensors for material management and print protection automatically detect and alert the user when the material is running low and allows for active jam detection during the entire print duration
  • Dry, sealed filament chamber of the MAKERBOT Method X protects material – especially hygroscopic ones – from harmful air humidity.
  • Enclosed build chamber can reach up to 212°F (100°C). Control the temperature and quality of every layer. While heated build plates are effective at reducing warping, the METHOD X takes it further with full active heat immersion during the entire duration of the print.
  • METHOD X is compatible with ABS, ASA, PLA, and PETG filaments. For support filaments, the METHOD X can utilize PVA and SR-30.
  • You can print via 10/100 Mb/s Fast Ethernet RJ45 LAN, USB 2.0 Type-A, and Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n).
  • The 5" display features touchscreen controls, allowing you to swipe, tap, and print directly from the METHOD X. With a 640 x 480 resolution, you'll be able to receive the up-to-the-second status of your current print job.
