The MakerBot Replicator Z18 is a big desktop 3D printer by Makerbot, a US based manufacturer. Makerbot is now a Stratasys line of products.

The MakerBot Replicator Z18 is the largest 3D printer of the Replicator Fifth Generation line of products. The smart extruder of the MakerBot Replicator Z18 is not as robust as the one from the Replicator 2 and its homing function is sometimes hazardous.
