On September 19, MakerBot Industries announce the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer, the company’s easiest, fastest, and most affordable tool yet for making professional-quality models.
Designed for the desktop of an engineer, researcher, creative professional, or anyone who loves to make things, the MakerBot Replicator 2 features 100-micron layer resolution, setting a new standard in professional looking models and true-to-life replicas. In addition, the MakerBot Replicator 2 enables users to make big objects, up to 410 cubic inches in volume (11.2” L x 6.0” W x 6.1” H).
“The new MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer, which is featured on the cover of the October 2012 issue of Wired, sets a new standard in resolution, build volume, and professional quality in the desktop 3D printer market,” said Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot. “With our fourth generation product, we have made the best desktop 3D printer on the market, made it affordable to both professionals and hobbyists, and made it cool looking.”
I have ideas for new toys in my head but I realised a long time ago that I'm not very good with my fingers. A Makerbot Replicator would go a long way in helping me create what's in my head. I'll love to have one of these.
