Large part size? No compromise.

Extra large build volume

With the largest build volume of any UltiMaker 3D printer, the Method XL is the ultimate 3D printing solution for large-scale projects. Print with industrial-grade materials and exceptional dimensional accuracy without the need to compromise on the size of your parts.

VECT thermal regulation system

Patented Variable Environmental Controlled Temperature (VECT) 100 thermal regulation evenly heats and controls the print environment. The result? Parts are 2x stronger on the z-axis, and 2x more accurate across the board. The Method XL also has a heated build plate for even better adhesion and temperature control.

High precision for Low tolerances.

Exceptional dimensional accuracy

The Method XL has been especially engineered to maintain dimensional accuracy and tight tolerances while printing even the largest ABS parts. Not only does the Method XL avoid warping and layer adhesion issues, but it creates massive parts with industrial-grade precision.

Support material? Gone in a splash.

Quick-dissolving supports for ABS

RapidRinse on the Method XL enables the fastest support removal for complex FDM prints. Create the geometries you want – in any orientation. Then watch as those water-soluble supports dissolve before your eyes.

External material case


The Method XL’s external moisture-controlled material case ensures peak performance from your professional-grade materials.

Print real ABS as easily as PLA

Reliably 3D print with ABS-R or ABS Carbon Fiber to simulate the material qualities of injection molded plastics.

Two filters, one seamless print

Both a HEPA filter and an activated carbon filter are integrated into the machine assuring that you can use the Method XL indoors without worrying about harmful fumes or strong smells.
