MakerBot ReplicatorTM 2 Desktop 3D Printer
There’s a new standard in desktop 3D printing. Our fourth generation machine isn’t just our best, it’s the best desktop 3D printer on the market. With a resolution capability of 100 microns and a massive 410 cubic inch build volume, the MakerBot ReplicatorTM 2 Desktop 3D Printer is the easiest, fastest, and most affordable tool for making professional quality models. We set a new standard with our work, so that you can set a new standard with yours. Includes a 1 lb spool of Natural PLA filament.
World class additive manufacturing Professional-quality prototypes. Highly complex models. Attractive pieces of art. With the new MakerBot ReplicatorTM2 Desktop 3D Printer, you can expect these and more. On a 3D printer, quality is often measured by the height of each layer, with smaller layers meaning higher resolution. We've dropped the default layer height all the way down to 100 microns, giving you smooth Surfaces without any post-production. Make things you're proud to demo to your boss or show off to your family. Discover the look and feel of the new standard in desktop 3D printing.
MakerBot PLA Filament
Now you can do your highest quality work and do a favor to the environment, too. We've adapted the MakerBot ReplicatorTM2 Desktop 3D Printer to work perfectly with PLA, the renewable bioplastic that sticks to the platform reliably with practically no peeling, curling, sliding or shrinking. With MakerBot PLA Filament you will make professional-quality prototypes and huge pieces with dimensional stability, meaning that what you design is what you get. What’s more, you will use 32% less energy than building with ABS plastic. Find out why MakerBot PLA Filament helps us set a standard in desktop 3D printing.
Enough room to make it BIG
A new standard in Desktop 3D Printing demands a build volume that’s bigger in all three dimensions. The MakerBot ReplicatorTM2 Desktop 3D Printer has a build volume of 410 cubic inches, so you can think and build bigger than ever. That's 37% more volume than the original MakerBot ReplicatorTM Desktop 3D Printer that you can use to make big things or entire multi-part projects at one time. Combined with our speed improvements, you now get much more done in much less time. Finally a desktop 3D printer made for multitasking.
Powder-coated steel chassis
To make the ReplicatorTM2 sturdy and durable enough for high-speed printing, we gave it an industrial strength chassis. The powder-coated steel is also resistant to changes in temperature and humidity, making it adaptable to your work space.

Q:What is Desktop 3D Printing?
A:3D printing, also called additive manufacturing, means making things layer by layer according to a 3D design file. This differs from traditional manufacturing, such as machining, which often involves subtracting a material in order to achieve a certain shape. 3D printers have a history of being very large and expensive; however, MakerBot sells top-of-the-line 3D printers that are made, priced, and sized for the desktop. The MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer measures 38 x 49 x 32 cm (14.7 x 19.1 x 12.8 in), making it ideal for a workspace or tabletop at home or in the office.
Q:What’s new about the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer?
A:The MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer is the easiest, fastest, and most affordable tool for making professional quality models. The MakerBot Replicator 2 sets a new standard in resolution and accuracy (true-to-life models) and build volume (size of model). Constructed with an industrial strength pressed steel frame, which has advantages for both form and function: the machine looks perfect in an office, lab, workbench, and even the living room and is durable enough to withstand high 3D printing speeds. Top features include:
100-micron layer resolution.
Very large build volume: 410 in3 (11.2 L x 6.0 W x 6.1 H in) / 6691.0 cm3 (28.4 x 15.5 x 15.2 cm).
No-curl, no-shrink MakerBot PLA Filament, a sturdy, renewable bioplastic.
Professionally engineered and expertly built for speed.
Pop-out build platform for convenient print retrieval.
New MakerBot MakerWare software that speeds the 3D printing process.
Brand new look and feel.
Responsive, expert customer support.
Q:How good is the quality of the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer?
A:The MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer sets an entirely new standard in resolution and accuracy. The MakerBot Replicator 2 has a layer resolution of 100 microns (0.1 mm). That’s over 2.5 times finer than the default layer resolution of the first generation MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer, meaning users can make objects so smooth they don’t need sanding or any other post-production. Experienced users will have the freedom to work in even higher layer resolutions.
Q:How big is the build space on the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer?
A:The MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer has a very large build volume of 410 cubic inches (11.2” L x 6.0” W x 6.1” H). The MakerBot Replicator 2 gives users 37% more space to build in than the first generation MakerBot Replicator Desktop3D Printer, meaning users can think and make bigger than ever. The new build volume is ideal for large ARChitectural or mechanical models, or for projects with many different parts, such as a model car. With all that build space, MakerBot operators can also make several different things at once, meaning they save time for the next projects on their lists.
