Key features


Actively heated chamber up to 100° C
Composite ready dual extrusion
Extra large build volume
Flexible heated build plate up to 105 °C

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.

Heated chamber.
Heated build plate.

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.

Chamber actively heated up to 100°C

Build plate heated up to 105°C

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.

Dimensional accuracy +/- 0.2mm

or +/-.002mm per mm of travel*

*(Whichever is greater.) Based on internal testing of selected geometries.

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.
