BROOKLYN, NY, June 10, 2021 – MakerBot, a Stratasys company, introduced its new Clean Air smart filtration system. The new system is part of MakerBot’s continued efforts to develop and deliver 3D printing solutions that support industry safety, sustainability, and compliance practices.
The MakerBot Clean Air System is a smart-controlled HEPA filtration system for the MakerBot METHOD and MakerBot METHOD X 3D printers. The MakerBot Clean Air System includes a HEPA filter designed to filter ultra-fine particles during the printing process. Internal testing at MakerBot shows that the MakerBot Clean Air System removes up to 95% of ultra-fine particles compared to printing without the accessory. The system seamlessly integrates into METHOD’s intuitive workflow by automatically controlling the HEPA lid and accounting for ambient conditions, chamber temperature, and model material.
The METHOD, METHOD X and SKETCH 3D printers already come equipped with several safety features. Each printer features enclosed build chambers, which will prevent users from being able to touch the parts or extruder when printing. METHOD will automatically pause during the printing process when its chamber door is opened. SKETCH also features a built-in particulate filter designed for safer printing in school environments.
“We are committed to being world-class in safety as we advance 3D printing’s use worldwide,” said Nadav Goshen, CEO, MakerBot. “From meeting industry certifications to delivering 3D printing solutions that support safety, our goal is always to exceed global industry benchmarks.”

Founded in 2009, MakerBot was one of the first companies to make 3D printing accessible and affordable with our first 3D printer, the Cupcake CNC. In 2010, we became the first company to present a 3D printer at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Now, 3D printing is its own category there with a myriad of 3D printing companies in attendance each year. After being acquired by Stratasys in 2013, they introduced the first Wi-Fi connected desktop 3D printer in 2014.
