MakerBot 3D Printers are designed for educators, engineers and designers in learning or office environments, who use 3D applications to create new ideas and prototypes. Ready to go, right out of the box, MakerBot 3D Printers offer the simplest setup experience and easy-to-use software with no tinkering required. Get models quickly, affordably, without the need for expertise or manual post-processing. The MakerBot Replicator Series (Replicator +, and Replicator Z18) are entry level 3D printers, ideal for first time users. The MakerBot Method Series (Method, Method X) are manufacturing workstation 3D printers, capable of finished part dimensional accuracy of +/-0.2mm . All MakerBot 3D printers are compatible with MakerBot PLA and Tough Materials. When quick engineering and industrial design prototypes are required, with a tolerance accuracy of +/-0.2mm (0.007 in), and low temperature materials are adequate, the MakerBot Method 3D Printer is the right choice for you.
Engineers and designers can minimise outsourcing costs and turn-around-time by bringing 3D printing in house. Increase the impact of design with 3D models and compress time-to-market by creating prototypes, manufacturing aids, and other parts that require complex assemblies, extreme geometries, and commercial precision. Additionally, create high-quality concept, presentation, or fit/form/function models easily and in-house, enabling design reviews, marketing photos, packaging development, ergonomic testing, prototyping and customer tradeshow samples.
Enhance your STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) curriculum by including performance 3D printing. Students and teachers will enjoy the convenience of printing high quality models right next to their desks, with the ease and flexibility expected of office printing. MakerBot 3D Printers set the standard for clean, classroom-friendly, anyone-can-use 3D printing. Educators can gain access to affordable 3D printing technology as a tool for teaching model-making and prototyping, replacing manual model-making methods. Fully automated, MakerBot 3D solutions do not require an expert to perform print management or finishing tasks, which lets teachers and students focus on what really adds value: learning how to design. MakerBot 3D Printers are optimised to work with MakerBot PLA material, a non-toxic and easy-to-print material safe for the classroom or home.
