4 MAKERBOT REPLICATOR +

Pros
Automatic pause of the print job, when filament is not available. Taking snap of your ongoing print job before print completion. Internal storage of 2GB for saving your pictures. Good printing quality and cleaning process is simpler.

Cons
Cannot able to build objects with increased height. Only works with PLA filament. Multi-color printing can be done by halting the print and refilling the filament and continuing the print job.



Design and Features

Makerbot replicator + is designed and manufactured by Makerbot to create an innovation in 3D printing world. It is tested at its best for 380,000+ hours across multiple facilities to deliver a perfectly structured and reliable 3D printer. It incorporates an onboard camera with which you can monitor the orientation and printing process in real time with naked eye from the mobile app. The structure of gantry and z-stage are perfectly designed and accommodates the smart extruder + to deliver the optimum and excellent design that is sent through the file. It uses fused deposition modeling as printing technology to get what you want.

It offers you Maker bot print software which enables you to create, update, manage 3D prints and also gives you facility to share them among your friends. It also helps you in streamlining the print jobs that are been done by the replicator +. This software gives you wide range of features in uploading different file formats and designing the files and assemblies accordingly. With the software you can even control the print jobs that are ongoing or yet to be started in multiple printers. The software is compatible for both windows and Mac and is available at free of cost. It has LCD display which eases your process of setting up the print process, previewing the print file before proceeding, and looking through you object files and print jobs. The LCD screen also displays you the estimated time, the print duration, and the percentage of print completed and this allows you to access your files from USB drive or internal storage easily.

Replicator + has its own difference from the previously launched Makerbot 3D printers by increased print speed i.e. about 30%, and increased build volume of about 25%. The build area is measured about 9492 cubic centimeters i.e. 29.5 L X 19.5 W X 16.5 H CM. You can control the print jobs from your smart phone with the mobile app installed in it. With the mobile app you are even updated with the print status which gives you time to concentrate more on your life style than on your print jobs. The app is compatible with Android and iOS users. You also have option to pre heat the build plate which increases your printing speed.

Filament and Connectivity

The connectivity options that are offered for you are USB for connecting your printer with desktops, Wi-Fi fir connecting with mobiles, and also with Ethernet connectivity and USB drive. The filament used in replicator + is tough PLA material which is non-toxic and which is designed to undergo less curls and warps during printing process. With this filament you are ensured with best quality printing and you can get the prototype or model you wished for. The 3D objects are made by melting the PLA filament to the shape provided in the file. The loading and unloading of the filament is much easier with single button press.
