MakerBot’s new Method 3D Printer to make first UK appearance at the Southern Manufacturing Show.

The new MakerBot Method 3D printer is the very first in a new category of high performance 3D printers that bridge the gap between industrial and desktop 3D printing. This innovative new product will be showcased at the Southern Manufacturing Show from 5th-7th February at Farnborough in Hampshire.
