MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer
The MakerBot Replicator 2X is a full-featured desktop 3D printer for daredevils and experimenters to explore the frontiers of 3D printing. Equipped with two extruders and optimized for the traditional thermoplastic ABS filament, the MakerBot Replicator 2X is prepared for future developments in 3D printing.
Add a new level of creativity to your 3D designs with two interlaced colors that you can print through precisely aligned dual nozzles—without swapping or pausing.
Optimized For MakerBot ABS Filament
Make snaps, living hinges, threaded objects and more with a ductile, petroleum thermoplastic with elastic deformation properties. Control heating and cooling better with a superflat heated aluminum build plate and a clear, six-sided, draft-blocking enclosure that helps prevent uneven cooling, shrinking and cracking.
100-Micron Layer Resolution
Speed your way to demonstrations and presentations with settings that range from fast-draft to finer resolution. Get smooth-to-the-touch surfaces that don’t need sanding, finishing or post-production.
Speed Your Way to New Designs
Accelerate the design process by prototyping right at your desk. Quickly iterate to verify your designs and catch flaws sooner. Use your own physical models for collaboration and to bring better products to market, faster. Save money with the best price/performance in desktop 3D printing. Watch these video examples:
