Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer
Designed for Daredevils and 3D Printing Experts
Blaze a Trail
Explore the frontiers of 3D printing with a full-featured experimental 3D printer.
Dual Extrusion - 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.
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.
Optimized for MakerBot PLA Filament - Get the best and most consistent filament for your MakerBot Replicator 2. MakerBot PLA Filament sticks to the build surface reliably with practically no peeling, curling, sliding or shrinking.
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.
MakerBot Thingiverse 3D Design Community
MakerBot Thingiverse is the 3D design community for discovering, printing, and sharing 3D models. See the great 3D models created by Thingiverse super users - and share your own!
Rely on Sophisticated Software - Get fast and consistent results.
MakerBot MakerWare is optimized for the best quality printing experience on your MakerBot Replicator 2. It's powered by our advanced slicing engine, the algorithm that tells your MakerBot Replicator 2 what to make and how to make it.
Add File - Supports STL and OBJ Files - MakerBot MakerWare works in tandem with your favorite 3D design tool.
Prepare - Easy to Use - Intuitive icons and controls. Drag and drop models right onto the virtual build space. Scale, move or rotate individual models or groups of models at once.
Preview and Make - Get Ready to Print - Test color possibilities, view individual layers and get estimates of time and materials. You can even see how support will be applied and how infill patterns will look.

MakerBot Replicator 2X Full-Featured Experimental Desktop 3D Printer
The MakerBot Replicator 2X is the perfect 3D printer for professionals and experts who want to take 3D printing to the next level. This MakerBot experimental 3D printer uses the latest extrusion technology and offers a faster design process through MakerBot MakerWare software. Through highly advanced hardware and software, the 3D Replicator 2X printer lets you visualize and actualize your projects more accurately.
The MakerBot Replicator 2X 3D printer features cutting-edge dual extrusion technology. This print technology uses two nozzles in exact alignment, so you can print 3D designs with two interlaced colors without pausing to swap nozzles. The build plate's superflat aluminum construction lets you control heating and cooling better, and a clear, draft-blocking enclosure reduces the risk of shrinking and cracking. With this printer's features, you can get perfect prints of your 3D designs on the first try.
This MakerBot experimental 3D printer is also specially designed to handle MakerBot ABS filament, a petroleum thermoplastic that's both flexible and strong. With this ductile material, you can use the MakerBot 3D Replicator 2X printer to make snaps, living hinges, and threaded objects.
This MakerBot 3D printer is a great boon to businesses in the manufacturing industry, as the printer lets users take their pick from a variety of production settings. On 'fine resolution' settings, the MakerBot Replicator 2X prints products that have smooth surfaces, so no post-production finishing or sanding is needed. Preview features available in MakerBot MakerWare software also let professionals try out color possibilities and provide estimates of time and materials needed.
Make sure you're using the best 3D printer available today by shopping for the MakerBot Replicator 2X 3D printer right here at MacMall. We offer a great selection of advanced MakerBot 3D printers, including the high-performance MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D printer.
