Welcome to prosumer 3D printing. With a resolution capability of 100 microns and a massive 410-cubic-inch build volume, the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer is our easiest, fastest, and most affordable tool yet for making professional-quality models. We set a new standard with our work, so that you can set a new standard with yours.


What the heck is a 3D printer?

A 3D printer is:

"a machine allowing a physical object to be created from a three-dimensional digital model, typically by laying down thin layers of a material in succession."[1]

From plans downloaded from the internet, to objects scanned with a 3D laser scanner (also coming soon to the Drake Library), you can replicate virtually any 3-dimensional object in plastic resin. 

Learn more about the endless possibilities of 3D printing and see examples at MakerBot's Website!
