The LABS Experimental Extruder gives users advanced customization options for a wide range of new materials, including interchangeable nozzle assemblies and expanded print settings in MakerBot’s print preparation software, MakerBot Print. The Labs Extruder is capable of reaching up to 300°C, and includes sensors that track temperature, materials, and extruder jams.
By transforming METHOD into an open materials platform engineers can now utilize this incredibly powerful tool to actualize their ideas and designs.
Tap into your innovative spirit with the MakerBot Labs Experimental Extruder. Capable of extruding a wide range of materials - the Experimental Extruder provides you with unlimited material freedom.
The MakerBot Labs Experimental Extruder for Method and Method X is compatible with a wide range of third-party materials. While technically any material can be used with the Labs Extruder, MakerBot has partnered with and certified filament from several leading material companies such as:
The list of partners continues to expand so check back often for updates.
Designed to deliver uncompromised performance right out-of-the-box, the MakerBot Method X is packed with features – delivering maximum innovation with minimal investment on the part of users.
Seamless CAD integration with AUTODESK Fusion 360, AUTODESK Inventor and Solidworks makes integrating Method into your CAD design workflow a breeze.
Designed to challenge traditional manufacturing, the Method X is capable of 3D printing real, production-grade ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) in its 100°C heated chamber. Utilizing Stratasys SR-30 soluble supports, Method X delivers exceptional dimensional accuracy and precision when printing complex, durable parts. The real ABS used in MakerBot filament can withstand up to 15°C higher temperatures, is up 26% more rigid, and up to 12% stronger than modified ABS formulations used in traditional ABS filaments.

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, which results in more consistent prints, more accurate parts, and fewer failures overall.

Featuring a 100°C circulating heated chamber, Method X allows users to control the temperature and quality of every layer. While heated build plates are effective at reducing first layer warping, Method X takes this approach one step further with full active heat immersion – the 100°C circulating heated chamber provides a stable print environment for superior Z-layer bonding – resulting in high-strength parts with a superior surface finish.
The fully-active heat immersion provided by Method X's 100°C circulated heated build chamber helps parts to cool at a controlled rate - resulting in parts with higher dimensional accuracy, better layer adhesion, and improved part strength.
The 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 material is running low and allows for active jam detection during the entire print duration. Other features such as the Spring Steel build plate, which easily pops out to allow users to queue up their next print, and the 5” full-color capacitive touch screen offers users a highly intuitive and seamless user experience.
Dry-sealed Material Bays form a near-perfect seal to keep material free of damaging humidity.
