Super flat heated build plate optimized for ABS

  • Get prints that stick: high-tolerance aluminum build plate is machined for crucial flatness to prevent warping or sagging that can affect print quality.
  • Build plate is anodized for longevity and durability.
  • Surface tape comes cut-to-size for smooth, hassle-free application.
  • Better temperature control keeps build plate heated precisely and evenly throughout.
  • Now in sleek MakerBot black.

Completely Re-engineered easy-load extruder

  • New easy-load filament lever makes loading filament as easy as flipping a light switch.
  • Re-designed filament feeding system dramatically reduces stripping, skipping, and jamming.
  • Constant force filament feeding system has no parts to wear out or need adjustment.
  • New thermal core design stabilizes internal temperature for more reliable prints.
  • Less maintenance and more uptime.

Dare to “Dual”: Dual Extrusion 3D printing

  • Be ready for cutting-edge developments in filament and multi-material printing.
  • Add a new level of creativity to your 3D design with interlaced colors.
  • Precisely aligned dual nozzles give perfect prints in one or two colors.
  • Updates in MakerWare make it easier to generate dual extrusion prints.
  • Firmware improvements reduce filament reversal, retraction, and over-run, meaning more definition between colors.

Six-sided enclosure for stabilized ABS cooling.

  • Enclosed sides block drafts and stabilize the ABS cooling period for less cracking and peeling.
  • Magnetic lid snaps on and off for easy access.
  • Clear-view top and sides let you monitor your progress.
  • Friction hinge door stays where you put it for easy print retrieval.
  • Magnetic latches keep small hands safe from hot components, at home and at school.

Everything you expect from a MakerBot Replicator 3D Printer including 100-micron layer-height resolution.

  • Industrial-strength, steel frame provides stability during high-speed printing.
  • 3-point build platform leveling that adjusts quickly.
  • Wear-resistant, oil-infused brass bearings for less maintenance.
  • Using MakerBot MakerWare, you can experiment with layer height resolutions much finer than 100 microns.
  • Designed to look awesome in your office or on your work bench.
