3D Printer, Makerbot Replicator 2

Inventory Classification

Cluster of 4 units.  100-micron layer resolution – If you know 3D machines or 3D printing in general, you understand this advancement. The original Replicator was tuned for a 270-micron layer height. 100 microns is nearly three times finer than before, which means the layers are even harder to see and feel. For those keeping score, 100 microns is also a good bit finer than the output on some much more expensive machines.

410 cubic inch build volume. When we learned more about PLA, which works beautifully with huge builds, we knew we had to increase the build volume. This is 37% larger than the original Replicator. You can make entire projects on one build plate.

Optimized for MakerBot PLA – Polylactic Acid, derived from corn, has been for a little while, but now we’ve discovered its full power. It doesn’t have an odor, it sticks without sliding, and it makes wonderful things.
