MakerBot’s METHOD Carbon Fibre 3D printer delivers outstanding surface finish with high heat resistance. The carbon fibre printed parts are engineering grade with high level strength and three dimensional accuracy.
Our Carbon Fibre 3d printer reinforced nylon filament combines high strength, stiffness and superior heat resistance making it perfect for metal replacement and structural applications.
METHOD carbon fibre is an add on to both the METHOD and METHOD X platform, with the Extruder 1C, which allows you to print using Nylon Carbon Fibre.
In addition, you have the freedom to use our other materials, with the other extruders, which makes METHOD a flexible and powerful industrial 3D Desktop printer replacement.
METHOD CARBON FIBRE 3D PRINTER FEATURES
METHOD is a Next-Generation desktop 3D printing platform that delivers manufacturing-grade parts with advanced engineering materials.
A Heated Chamber That Delivers Stronger Manufacturing-Grade Parts.
An Open Platform for Advanced Engineering Materials.
Guaranteed Part Accuracy and SR-30 Soluble Support .
Save Engineering Time with an Automated Workflow and CAD Integration.
Carbon fibre 3D Printer reinforced nylon 6/66 blend for high strength to weight ratio and heat resistance. For max performance in controlled environments.
– 184°C HDT @0.455 MPa
– 110 MPa Tensile Strength
– 7600 MPa Tensile Modulus
Optimal performance requires extra steps and a controlled environment
- Filament should be dried before printing
- Higher print temp may result in stringing
Nylon 12 provides the easiest carbon fibre composite 3D printing experience thanks to superior moisture resistance. For consistent performance in any environment.
– 154°C HDT @0.455 MPa
– 66 MPa Tensile Strength
– 6000 MPa Tensile Modulus
- No additional steps required before or after print process

Nylon (6/66) Carbon Fibre has the highest peak performance in all categories, it is significantly affected by moisture which will reduce both strength and modulus.
Nylon 12 Carbon Fibre is less affected by moisture and will retain more of its performance in the presence of moisture.
