PETG Specialty Model Material for MakerBot Method

PETG Specialty Model Material
for MakerBot Method

The first advanced material in the METHOD Speciality Material line for professionals brings superior part durability and chemical resistance. Engineers and designers use MakerBot METHOD and PETG Material to create durable parts that match design dimensions at up to 2X faster than desktop and industrial 3D printers.

PETG is the material of choice for printing high-performance parts that demand excellent durability along with temperature, moisture, and chemical resistance. Engineers and designers use PETG to produce durable prints with speed and agility that can withstand industrial applications including functional prototypes, jigs and fixtures, and end-use parts.

Technical Specifications

PRINTER COMPATIBILITY
MakerBot Method

SPOOL TYPE
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.

SPECIALTY MATERIAL USER NOTE
Specialty Materials provide basic print performance and can require additional workflow steps to print successfully. PETG requires the application of adhesion stick to the build plate prior to printing.
