Introducing UltiMaker's Method XL


UltiMaker began in 2009 as a small startup looking to revolutionize 3D printing. Founder Martijn Elserman had the vision to mass-produce robust, user-friendly 3D printers, and with the help of his team, UltiMaker has gone on to become a leader in the 3D printing industry. The company provides a range of 3D printers, materials, and software that provide users with the ability to quickly fabricate high-quality, accurate parts.

3D printing has quickly become an essential part of manufacturing and it’s getting even better with the introduction of UltiMaker’s Professional-grade Industrial 3D Printer, the UltiMaker's Method XL. It is the largest 3D printer that UltiMaker has ever released and it brings a range of impressive features and capabilities that surpass the capabilities of desktop 3D printers and is soon to hit the market.


The 305 x 305 x 320mm build volume is one of the largest on the market and it features a staggering dimensional accuracy of ± 0.2mm for high-quality and precise parts. Such accuracy brings with it the potential for users to use injection molding plastics such as ABS-R and ABS Carbon Fiber.


The UltiMaker's Method XL also looks to satisfy the needs of professional-grade 3D printing, too. It is designed to efficiently and quickly remove supports from complex parts with UltiMaker’s patented RapidRinse technology. In addition to this, it can also run a wide range of third-party materials, including Jabil SEBS, Polymaker PolyMax PC, and LEHVOSS PAHT 9891. The Method XL also features a heated build chamber capable of reaching up to 100 ℃, and a heated build plate that can reach 105 ℃, to help ensure parts adhere correctly and do not warp during cooling.




The safety features are also impressive. To ensure users can 3D print indoors, the Method XL comes with a HEPA filter and activated carbon filter, as well as an external moisture-controlled material case to keep the materials in optimal condition. The Method XL can also be operated via UltiMaker’s CloudPrint software, which can be accessed via a web browser to monitor print jobs remotely.



Considering all of its features, the Method XL looks set to bridge the gap between desktop and industrial-grade 3D printing. It is a powerful tool that can be relied on to produce strong and accurate parts faster and more efficiently. Although pricing has yet to be officially announced, it is estimated to be in the range of $10,000 to $20,000, making it a great investment for those looking for a highly capable 3D printer.
