REAL, PRODUCTION- GRADE ABS FOR MANUFACTURING APPLICATIONS
ABS is one of the most popular materials for injection molded consumer products due to its clean surface finish, durability, and heat resistance. METHOD X can print manufacturing-grade ABS without warping and without weakening additives thanks to its 100°C heated chamber.
- Includes one spool of ABS Precision Material (0.63kg, 1.39lb),
- Material Extruder 1XA
- Support Extruder 2XA
MakerBot METHOD X
Smart Spool™ provides valuable information including material type, color, and amount remaining via an RFID chip directly to MakerBot Print, while a desiccant in the spool maintains a low moisture level inside the drawer bay.

Store in the included a vacuum-sealed metalized polyester bag to avoid moisture absorption from air; long-term exposure to humidity can compromise material quality and performance. Make sure the built-in desiccant is in the spool to absorb any moisture exposure during the material loading process.
