MakerBot Launched Method Carbon Fiber Editions

MakerBot, a subsidiary of Stratasys, is a global leader in 3D printing. By launching Method Carbon Fiber Editions, 3D printing has been brought to a new level. The company said the new version is designed to enable engineers to print stronger and more accurate parts for manufacturing tools, fixtures and fixtures, and end-use production. In some applications, they can also be used to print metal replacement parts.

Method Carbon Fiber Edition is the latest product of the Method platform. It can print carbon fiber reinforced nylon and is optimized for high strength and heat resistance. The new Method and Method X carbon fiber versions are pre-configured with a new composite extruder that is optimized to handle abrasives. The new extruder can also be used as an upgraded version of the Method and Method X 3D printers. It has hardened metal drive gears, wire switches and interchangeable hardened steel nozzles. It can print MakerBot nylon carbon fiber materials and all other model materials supported on the Method platform.

The new MakerBot nylon carbon fiber material is an ideal lightweight alternative to metal and can be used in structural applications such as vehicle brackets and checklists, manufacturing tools (such as robotic end effectors), and under-hood applications. Due to its strong thermal and mechanical properties, carbon fiber is often used in the manufacturing, automotive, and aerospace industries. Used as a substitute for metal parts, carbon fiber can help reduce costs and improve the company’s overall efficiency.

Nylon carbon fiber is one of the most exciting and exciting materials. MakerBot President and CEO Nadav Goshen said its high strength, heat resistance, and stiffness characteristics make it ideal for printing metal replacement parts, which helps reduce costs and improve the company’s overall efficiency. “With the introduction of Method Carbon Fiber, we have made composite 3D printing easier than ever for more users and opened the door to new applications. Method Carbon Fiber is the newest member of the rapidly growing Method 3D printing platform.”

The heating chamber of this method can produce sturdy manufacturing-grade nylon carbon fiber parts, and has an excellent surface finish. Users can use MakerBot’s PVA soluble support materials to print complex geometries with internal cavities, and use Method’s new heating chamber annealing function to anneal the final part to gain additional strength. With Method X Carbon Fiber Edition, users can use Stratasys SR-30 soluble supports to print complex geometries for better surface finish. Separate support is also provided for faster printing results. Method’s dry-sealed filament carrier helps keep moisture-sensitive nylon carbon fiber materials dry, improving print quality and reliability.

MakerBot plans to provide other composite materials for the Method carbon fiber version and Method’s composite extruder in the future. Because Method X has a higher manufacturing temperature than Method, up to 110 ° C, it will be able to support a wider range of high-performance composite materials in the future. Method carbon fiber version, MakerBot nylon carbon fiber material, and composite extruder is expected to start shipping in June 2020.

The Method platform has industrial 3D printing capabilities, making it ideal for printing with advanced engineering-grade materials. The combination of the heating chamber, super-hard steel frame, sealed material carrier, high-performance extruder, and dissolvable support allows engineers to print out consistently accurate parts. Method provides a variety of materials for various engineering applications. MakerBot materials include nylon carbon fiber, PC-ABS, PC-ABS FR, ABS, ASA, nylon, PETG, Tough, PLA, and support materials SR-30 and PVA.
