Today, UltiMaker announced the latest product in their METHOD series of 3D printers: the UltiMaker METHOD XL.

Designed to be the ultimate 3D printing solution for engineering applications, offering precision printing with industrial-grade materials without compromising on part size.

Upcoming Live Demo:
Meet the new UltiMaker Method XL

Join UltiMaker on June 13th 2023 for an exclusive first look at the new UltiMaker Method XL 3D Printer.

Felipe Casteneda, UltiMaker Creative Director, will provide a live demo, showing why the Method XL is the ultimate solution for engineering applications.

What’s new with the UltiMaker METHOD XL?

A Large 305 mm x 305 mm x 320 mm Build Volume

UltiMaker takes what users love about the METHOD series of desktop 3D printers and goes all in on big. The new METHOD XL has a build volume of 305 mm x 305 mm x 320 mm (XYZ), a sizable upgrade compared to the METHOD and METHOD X printers, both of which have a max build volume of 190 mm x 190 mm x 196 mm.

This new larger build volume on the METHOD XL now rivals that of the UltiMaker S5 and UltiMaker S7 printers, each of which feature a max build volume 330 mm x 240 mm x 300 mm.

+/- 0.2mm Dimensional Part Accuracy

This printer has been meticulously engineered to handle even the most complex ABS parts with ease. Thanks to the stable printing environment created by its heated build plate (up to 105 C) and actively heated build chamber (up to 100 C), the METHOD XL has a dimensional accuracy of +/- 0.2mm or +/-.002mm per mm of travel, whichever is greater.

Why is this important?

Unlike the METHOD XL, most 3D printers in a similar category or even those in the METHOD series do not have a measured dimensional accuracy specification. Engineers looking to print highly accurate functional prototypes without a high upfront cost can now have a perfect option in the METHOD XL.

New Material Offering: ABS-CF

Launching with the METHOD XL is the new ABS-CF material from UltiMaker.

Combining the performance of carbon fiber with the reliability of ABS, ABS-CF unlocks high performance properties, while also being compatible with RapidRinse water soluble support material for greater design freedom.

Integrated Air Filters and External Material Handling Case

The METHOD XL now features integrated HEPA and Carbon Air filters for actively filtering exhaust fumes from the printer.

Also included is an external material handling case designed to protect your materials from exposure to ambient moisture in your environment.

What materials are compatible with METHOD XL?

Core Materials with 1C and 2XA Extruders

Out of the box, the METHOD XL is compatible with UltiMaker ABS-R and ABS-CF (used with the 1C Extruder), and UltiMaker RapidRinse (used with the 2XA Extruder).

Open Materials Platform with LABS GEN 2 Experimental Extruder

UltiMaker continues to offer access to third-party 3D printing materials through its LABS GEN 2 Experimental Extruder. Customers looking to print outside of ABS will be able to print with materials such as Polymax PC from Polymaker and SEBS 95A from Jabil.
