1 ± 0.2mm or ± 0.002 mm per mm of travel – whichever is greater. Based on internal testing of selected geometries.
2 Compared to popular desktop 3D printers when using the same layer height and infill density settings. Speed advantage dependent upon object geometry.
3 Combined total test hours of METHOD and METHOD X (full system and subsystem testing) expected to be completed around shipping of METHOD X.
4 Available only on METHOD X
5 Based on internal testing of injection-molded specimens of MakerBot ABS compared to ABS from a leading desktop 3D printer competitor. Tensile testing was performed according to ASTM D638 and HDT testing according to ASTM D648.
