The new MakerBot Print and Mobile applications are designed to allow professionals to easily integrate MakerBot into their workflow and help educators introduce their students to 3D printing. These applications help streamline the print preparation process, save time, and produce higher quality prints. The new MakerBot Replicator+ and Replicator Mini+ have been re-engineered and tested to provide improved performance—that means faster, easier, and more reliable printing with a bigger build volume. With the new MakerBot Slate Gray Tough PLA Filament Bundle, engineers can create more durable, high-impact strength prototypes and fixtures. For educators, MakerBot is also launching Thingiverse Education to discover 3D printing classroom content created by other educators.

“We have gone through a cultural shift here at MakerBot over the past year, where listening and understanding the needs of our customers are cornerstones of our company. As a result, we’ve gained an in-depth understanding of the wider needs of professionals and educators that has informed our product development process,” said Jonathan Jaglom, CEO of MakerBot. “Our new solutions for professionals and educators are based on feedback addressing how we could accelerate and streamline the iterative design process and make teaching with a desktop 3D printer easier and more effective.”

MakerBot Print & Mobile

Integrating desktop 3D printing into your design workflow can be challenging and time consuming. That’s why MakerBot has developed connected 3D printing solutions that make the process easier. A new version of MakerBot Mobile includes a Guided Setup feature that walks the user through the entire 3D printer setup process step by step. Once you’re up and running, the new MakerBot Print software helps streamline the 3D printing experience for any workflow. Native CAD Support1, for example, allows users to easily import common CAD files2 and assemblies. This new feature eliminates the need for STL files and can result in significant time savings by reducing the number of files the user needs to manage and mundane steps for each iteration. Users can now even organize 3D files and multiple build plates into projects and easily email project files as attachments to collaborate with others. Storing information as complete project files instead of stand-alone model files allows users to save the print settings and build plate layout of one or more designs as one file.

MakerBot Print also enhances the print preparation process, saving time and helping users achieve high quality prints. The new Auto Arrange feature automatically positions objects across multiple build plates to print them simultaneously or sequentially. With Dynamic Print Settings3, users can change settings like resolution or thickness for each individual model on the build plate, saving time by printing models with varying print settings simultaneously. A new Print Preview option lets users review the Smart Extruder+’s path to make adjustments before printing a model. Users can either review each individual layer or play an animated video preview to see support material placement and validate that small features are printable.

MakerBot Print and the new MakerBot Mobile app support different office or classroom setups by building upon MakerBot’s remote monitoring and printing capabilities. Individual users and small to large organizations now have the flexibility to control and monitor multiple 3D printers throughout an office or school, in different buildings, or even different parts of the world through live camera feeds and print status updates. MakerBot Print and an updated version of MakerBot Mobile are available now.

MakerBot Replicator+ and Replicator Mini+

The new MakerBot Replicator+ and Replicator Mini+ have been re-engineered and tested to provide improved performance—that means faster, easier, and more reliable printing with a bigger build volume. Both printers feature an improved gantry and Z-stage through stiffer materials and sturdier construction for consistent and predictable printing. MakerBot’s new 3D printers went through extensive printer and subsystem testing of 380,000+ hours <
