Replicator 2x is a desktop 3D printer, part of the MakerBot Thingiverse family, the 3D design community for discovering, printing, and sharing 3D models.

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. 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. 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.

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 MakerWare works in tandem with your favorite 3D design tool. Experiment with Advanced Dual Extrusion capabilities that allow you to set individual extruders to MakerBot ABS Filament or MakerBot Dissolvable Filament. 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.

The small-scale 3D printers, like the MakerBot Replicator 2—which retail for around $2,100—will start becoming household commodities in no time. The pint-sized devices are capable of spitting out everything from toys, to desktop items like puzzles, and even jewelry—all made from the special eco-friendly, plastic-like material used to construct products when scanned and 3D printed.
