MakerBot Replicator review

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

This 3D printer has been replaced by the MakerBot Replicator+.

The MakerBot Replicator is the latest version of the famous Replicator. Also called MakerBot Replicator Fifth Generation this 3D printer is known as begin less reliable than the previous version. The smart extruder of the MakerBot Replicator is not as robust as the one from the Replicator 2 and its homing function is sometimes hazardous.

The Makerbot Replicator is delivered with the Makerbot Desktop 3D software. This software can optimize the 3D files before sending the instructions to the 3D printer.

The MakerBot Replicator only 3D prints PLA. For this 3D printer Makerbot offers a Slate Gray Tough PLA Filament Bundle ($379) that is designed to allow professionals to create durable, high-impact strength prototypes and fixtures. This bundle consists of three spools of MakerBot Tough PLA Filament in slate gray bundled with the MakerBot Tough PLA Smart Extruder+. The MakerBot Tough PLA combines the best characteristics of PLA and ABS filament: tough as ABS with similar tensile, compressive, and flexural strength. It 3D prints with the ease and reliability of PLA.
