MakerBot 3D Printers
Makerbot has sold over 100,000 desktop 3D printers worldwide and has released six generations of 3D printers. With the release of the MakerBot Method, MakerBot has made a significant contribution to the industrial market.
Print twice as fast as desktop 3D printers while providing dimensional accuracy and industrial 3D printer reliability.
Ultra-Rigid Metal Frame Construction: A structurally-optimized metal frame 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 Chamber: Control the temperature and quality of every layer – not just the first. While heated build plates are effective at reducing warping, Method takes this further with full active heat immersion during the entire duration of the print.
Dual Performance Extruders: The Dual Performance Extruder system is built from the ground up to accelerate print times and provide dimensional accuracy across every part.
Dry-Sealed Material Bays: Dry-Sealed Material Bays form a near-perfect seal to keep material free of damaging humidity. A suite of built-in sensors provides that your material is stored in its optimal environment—a feature previously only available in industrial 3D printers.
MakerBot Materials for Method:
- PRECISION MATERIALS: Extensively tested by MakerBot for the highest reliability and measurably accurate parts.
- SPECIALTY MATERIALS: For users looking for special materials with advanced properties to push the limits of what’s possible.
Disolvable Support System: Superior surface finish and unrestricted geometric freedom are paramount to delivering high quality printed parts. MakerBot Water-Soluble PVA ensures fast and effortless support removal without compromising part design or dimensional accuracy.
MakerBot Water-Soluble PVA provides two key benefits:
- Unrestricted geometric freedom (large overhangs, cavities, etc.)
- Superior print quality and surface finish
Massive build volume meets speed and reliability for professional innovators. The MakerBot Replicator Z18 also gives you the best price-to-performance ratio in the extra-large, professional 3D printer category
Massive Build Volume: Make extra-large and ultra-tall industrial concept models and prototypes. Think and build bigger than ever.
2,592 CUBIC INCHES
30.0 L X 30.5 W X 45.7 H CM
11.8 L x 12.0 W x 18.0 H IN
Includes the MakerBot Smart Extruder+: Double the warranty of its predecessor, the Smart Extruder+ is a culmination of product design and 160,000+ hours of rigorous testing that delivers dependable, consistent performance with superior results using MakerBot PLA Material.
Iterate at a Fraction of the Cost of Industrial 3D Printers:With the massive build volume of the Z18, you can print prototypes and parts at a vastly lower cost than industrial 3D printers.
