Ultra-Rigid Metal Frame Construction
The METHOD features a structurally optimized metal frame that runs the full length of the body to offset flexing. Less flexing means more consistent prints with better part accuracy and fewer failures.


Circulating Heated Build Chamber
The enclosed build chamber can reach up to 140°F (60°C). Control the temperature and quality of every layer.


Dual Performance Extruders
The Dual Performance Extruder system accelerates print times and provides dimensional accuracy across every part. Each Performance Extruder contains a suite of sensors that detect when material is running low and allow for active jam detection during the entire print duration. The system also has more torque with a 19:1 dual-drive gear ratio, which keeps materials loaded and ready for reliable material extrusion at every layer. The lengthened thermal core has a fast start-up time, heating up in less than 60 seconds.


Dry-Sealed Material Bays
There are two material bays that form a seal that keeps material free from being damaged from humidity. A suite of built-in sensors ensures that your material is stored in its optimal environment.


Filament Compatibility
The METHOD is compatible with PLA and PETG filaments. For support filaments, the METHOD can utilize PVA.


Print Options You can print via 10/100 Mb/s Fast Ethernet RJ45 LAN, USB 2.0 Type-A, and Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n).


5" Full Color Touchscreen
The 5" display features touchscreen controls, allowing you to swipe, tap, and print directly from the METHOD. With a 640 x 480 resolution, you'll be able to receive up-to-the-second status of your current print job.


Spring Steel Build Plate
A precision-calibrated print base and spring steel build plate provide true flatness for part accuracy.
