Makerbot has announced an all new printer and printer platform; the MakerBot Method. A “performance” printer which bridges the gap between smaller desktop 3D printing units and industrial printing systems by bringing industrial features to a professional printing platform at a significantly lower cost.
“In an age of disruption, businesses are under pressure to innovate and bring products to market faster. Current desktop 3D printers derive their DNA from hobbyist 3D printers and are insufficient for many applications in the professional segment. We believe that Method is the next step in helping organizations adopt 3D printing at a larger scale.” - Nadav Goshen, MakerBot CEO
