3D Material

MAKERBOT FILAMENT IS OPTIMIZED TO GIVE YOU
THE BEST 3D PRINTING RESULTS

MakerBot Filament is designed specifically to work with MakerBot 3D printers.

MakerBot Materials include PLA, ABS, flexible, and dissolvable.

MAKERBOT MATERIALS FOR REPLICATOR+ AND REPLICATOR Z18

MAKERBOT PLA

Safe for 3D printing in the classroom, office, or home, this material is non-toxic and easy to print with minimal warping or curling. It’s also the best, most consistent material to use with previous MakerBot Replicator 3D printer models.

MAKERBOT TOUGH

Created for engineers and designers, MakerBot Tough PLA Filament allows you to print durable,
high-impact strength prototypes and fixtures. This material is tested and optimized to print reliably and easily with the Tough PLA Smart Extruder+.

MAKERBOT MATERIALS FOR METHOD

MakerBot Materials for Method are manufactured to exacting diameter and quality specifications. Shipped in a vacuum-sealed metalized polyester bag, quality is preserved right up until opening.

MakerBot Materials for the Method and Method X 3D printers include Nylon, ABS and even Carbon! Find out more about which materials are compatible with the Method and Method X here

MAKERBOT PLA

PLA is a great material for early concept models because it is easy to use, office-friendly, and works great with breakaway supports which print faster and can be removed faster than dissolvable supports. PLA is a corn-based plastic and is considered biodegradable under industrial processes.

MAKERBOT TOUGH

Tough is a material that is great for mid-stage prototypes because of its ease of use and office-friendliness. An added benefit over PLA is its durability, pliability, and machinability which makes it perfect for snap fits and assemblies.

MAKERBOT PVA

PVA is a water soluble support material that is compatible with many lower temperature model materials such as PLA and PETG.

Because PVA is water soluble it is very office friendly, and is a great option for printing the most complex geometries in a prototyping environment.

MAKERBOT PETG MATERIAL

PETG’s chemical resistance makes it a choice material for liquid containers and bottles, which also makes it great for prototyping those types of products. PETG is also commonly used in research labs that require chemical resistance in functional parts or containers.

MAKERBOT ABS

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.
