MakerBot Precision ASA

Superior Part Performance for Demanding Outdoor Applications.

MakerBot Precision ASA is a weather-resistant alternative to ABS used widely for functional prototypes and end-use parts in demanding outdoor environments. This thermoplastic formulation has properties similar to MakerBot Real ABS, but with better UV and chemical resistance for retaining gloss, color, and mechanical properties when exposed to the elements. 

MakerBot ASA is supported by Stratasys® SR-30 support material for unrestricted geometric freedom and is ideal for demanding applications in the automotive, power and utilities, agriculture, oil & gas, and mass transit industries.

About MakerBot METHOD Materials

METHOD Precision Materials

MakerBot Precision Materials are the primary materials developed for METHOD that cover the majority of use cases for prototyping, jigs and fixtures, and end-use parts. These materials have been extensively tested for the highest reliability and measurably accurate parts. 

METHOD Specialty Materials

METHOD Speciality Materials are intended for users looking for advanced material properties. Specialty Materials provide basic print performance and can require additional workflow steps to print successfully. 

About MakerBot METHOD:

MakerBot METHOD bridges the gap between industrial and desktop 3D printing. It was developed from the ground up leveraging industry-leading Stratasys® patents including a heated build chamber, precision dissolvable supports, and dry-sealed material bays. Engineers and designers use METHOD to create end-use parts, manufacturing tools, and functional prototypes.
