MakerBot METHOD

In a special webinar, MakerBot Industrial Designer Felipe Castaneda and Lead Project Engineer Michael Pappas presented the capabilities of the MakerBotMETHOD through a series of challenging benchmark prints that highlighted the precision and accuracy made possible using the world’s first Performance 3D Printer. METHOD is the world’s first performance 3D printer designed for professionals. It bridges the gap between industrial and desktop 3D printing with the fastest CAD to part workflow.

 

Some of the METHOD Benchmark Print Challenges included:

  • Vertical Layer Uniformity - measures how accurately the next layer is printed relative to the previous layer (results in surface smoothness).

  • Printed Part Dimensional Accuracy of ± 0.2mm - measures how close the finished printed features match the dimensions of the same features in CAD.

  • Tight Cylindricity Tolerance - measurement of the precise “roundness” of a circular feature.

  • Unrestricted Geometric Freedom - challenges capabilities of PVA material to achieve true freedom from part orientation and support material constraints.

  • Complex Overhangs without Scarring - demonstrates uncompromised surface quality and tight tolerances regardless of part complexity.
