MakerBot, again Makerbot!
First came The Cupcake CNC in March 2009. Do you remember?
Because of the open source nature of the project, and community suggestions, the product evolved quickly. In September 2010 the Thing-O-Matic comes out as the second 3D Printer kit.
In January 2012 Makerbot introduced the Replicator, the killer printer! 3D Printing is at home. Now in the 4th generation, the Replicator has a resolution capability of 100 microns and a massive 410 cubic inch build volume. The box is a 19.1 x 16.5 x 14.7 in [49 x 42 x 38 cm] volume weighting 25.4 lbs [11.5 kg].
You can find it at the MAKERBOT STORE in New York City.
So what else to expect? Well, the inverse process, I guess, the 3D scanner. Watch the Bre pettis presentation below
It is now available to order at makerbot.com/digitizer. It costs $1400 and turns objects into 3D digital design files in approximately 12 minutes.
Frank Gehry will love it! What a time saver…
