The Makerbot Replicator 5th Generation 3D printer is a tried and tested work horse. Makerbot have developed a reputation for producing 3D printers that can keep on printing with little maintenance for many hours. They have great speed, reliability, quality and connectivity. The printer is both USB and ethernet enabled which means you can connect to your makerbot account, controlling your printer using the Makerbot App. It features the new Makerbot smart extruder, motion controllers and gantry design.
Makerbot Replicator 5th Generation features
This is a 5th generation refinement of a great 3D printer design. One of the great advantages of the makerbot design is that the smart extruder detects when there is no filament left and automatically pauses the print sending notifications to your makebot desktop and mobile apps. This gives you the freedom to press print and walk away knowing your print is not going to be destroyed.
It comes with a 3.5″ full colour LCD display and an easy to use dial interface. You can easily access your object library and files. The on board software allows you to store printer files for later use.
It even has an built in camera so that you can monitor your prints remotely, it can automatically take photos of your print and save it to your cloud storage! The fully featured software that is free to download helps you organise and access your 3D model files
This really is the next generation in 3D printers.
