Introducing our biggest 3D printer

Method XL

UltiMaker Method XL 

Precision Printing. Industrial Scale

Introducing the Method XL, a revolutionary 3D printer that combines the accessibility of desktop printers with the performance of industrial ones. With its generous build volume, remarkable dimensional accuracy, and a build chamber that is temperature-controlled, the Method XL effortlessly creates durable and complex parts.

What sets Method XL apart?


  • Build Volume: 305 x 305 x 320mm
  • Ultimate ABS 3D Printing Solution
  • Streamlines Post-Processing
  • Remote Management Available via CloudPrint

Bigger. Better. Faster

Extra large build volume: Easily print large engineering parts to meet your needs.

Precise temperature control: The combination of the heated build plate and actively heated build chamber ensures a stable printing environment, allowing for the creation of accurate parts of any size.

Integrated air filters: The exhaust air from the Method XL is filtered through both HEPA and carbon filters, ensuring a clean and safe printing environment.

5-in-1 modular extruders: Effortlessly switch between material groups to prevent any potential contamination.

Water-soluble supports: Achieve precise specifications for manufacturing tools and production parts with the help of ABS and a revolutionary water-soluble support material that dissolves quickly and easily in tap water.

Ultra-rigid metal frame: Our structurally-optimised metal frame runs the full length of the body, minimizing flexing and resulting in consistent prints with exceptional part accuracy and a reduced risk of failures.

Manufacturing Ready Materials

  • UltiMaker ABS-R: Engineering-grade ABS that is as easy to print as PLA
  • UltiMaker RapidRinse: Water-soluble support material that enables you to print complex parts with ease
  • UltiMaker ABS-CF: The performance of carbon fiber combined with the reliability of ABS-R.

Plus unlock third party extruders with the Labs Open Material Extruder.
