"The MakerBot Replicator 2 & 2X are available to buy in our web shop now.
The MakerBot Replicator is an amazing 3D printer which can build plastic parts at home, school or the office. This low cost 3D printer allows you to build your own designs or download models to create large parts, in 2 colours, at an affordable price. There are 2 formats available for the MakerBot Replicator: A single head extruder or dual head extruder for building parts in multiple colours or multiple materials at the same time. The Replicator comes fully assembled and tested, which means you can start printing parts straight away.
The MakerBot Replicator is able to manufacture parts in ABS, PLA or PVA plastics using a melted extrusion technique. You can build almost any shape you choose with a 3D printer and with the new MakerBot "Dualstrusion"option you can build in 2 colours or materials, so why not try it for yourself. This affordable machine and materials means you can experiment with 3D printing without the expense. The MakerBot Replicator is a great way to get started in 3D printing especially if you do not have a huge budget to spend.
