Quality 3D Printing Materials

The METHOD 3D printer uses an exciting range of materials, from PLA to Carbon Fibre to ABS. These materials are manufactured to exact diameter and quality specifications.

METHOD materials are shipped in a sealed metalised bag to preserve the quality right up until you open it. METHOD materials also include the Smart Spool, which features an RFID chip, that provides information on material type, colour and remaining quantity to your printer, and a built in desiccant absorbs any excess moisture.

MAKERBOT MATERIALS FOR METHOD

Makerbot PLA

RIGID AND GLOSSY PARTS FOR QUICK AND EASY, OFFICE-FRIENDLY PROTOTYPING

PLA is a great material for early concept models because it is easy to use, office-friendly, and works great with breakaway supports which print faster and can be removed faster than dissolvable supports. PLA is a corn-based plastic and is considered biodegradable under industrial processes.

Makerbot Tough

DURABLE, TOUGH PARTS, OFFICE-FRIENDLY PRINTING

Tough is a material that is great for mid-stage prototypes because of its ease of use and office-friendliness. An added benefit over PLA is its durability, pliability, and machinability which makes it perfect for snap fits and assemblies.  Download data sheet

Makerbot PETG

CHEMICAL AND MOISTURE RESISTANCE AND DURABILITY

PETG’s chemical resistance makes it a choice material for liquid containers and bottles, which also makes it great for prototyping those types of products. PETG is also commonly used in research labs that require chemical resistance in functional parts or containers. Download data sheet

Makerbot ABS

REAL, PRODUCTION- GRADE ABS FOR MANUFACTURING APPLICATIONS

ABS is one of the most popular materials for injection molded consumer products due to its clean surface finish, durability, and heat resistance. METHOD X can print manufacturing-grade ABS without warping and without weakening additives thanks to its 100°C heated chamber. Download data sheet

Makerbot ASA

UV AND MOISTURE RESISTANCE FOR DEMANDING OUTDOOR APPLICATIONS

ASA combines the qualities of ABS with the added benefit of UV resistance and additional moisture resistance making it ideal for equipment exposed to sunlight and rain over long periods of time – such as products for the agriculture, transportation, and power and utility industries.

Makerbot PC-ABS & PC-ABS Fire Retardent

PRINT DURABLE AND HEAT-RESISTANT PROTOTYPES AND END-USE PARTS

PC-ABS is a strong, engineering-grade material that has both a high heat resistance and high impact resistance. When ABS does not provide a high enough impact resistance, but high heat resistance is still required, PC-ABS is a great alternative, due to the addition of polycarbonate. Download data sheet
