Price discounted 25% off for a limited time!  MakerBot Method X is a configuration option based on the Method. This 3D printer has a heated chamber of 110 degrees. The standard Method 3D printer has a 60 degree heated chamber.  The higher temperature in the X allows you to 3D print models with superior accuracy and strength. The Method X uses the same MakerBot polymers and composites as the Method.   

MakerBot Method X

The MakerBot METHOD X is a high performance, tinker-free 3D printer designed to handle the most complex 3D printing needs. Featuring a 100°C heated chamber, the METHOD X prints a wide range of complex and durable ABS parts and other material types.
