MakerBot Replicator 2 Among TIME’s Best Inventions Of 2012

Posted by on Friday, November 2, 2012 in Uncategorized

A hurricane tried to keep us down this week, but then we got this news:

TIME has named the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer one of the 25 Best Inventions of 2012.

The MakerBot Replicator 2 was a big step forward for us. We focused on creating the tool that people can use to make the products and technologies of the future. From our perspective, being recognized on this list is symbolic. We know the Replicator 2 is a stepping stone to the best inventions of 2013 and beyond; invented by you.

Okay, some of my colleagues said this might seem like bragging, but I feel like one of those (annoyingly) proud grandparents who can’t help it. I’ve got the keys to the blog and you better believe I’m going to brag on our army of genius engineers for at least a paragraph. Or two.

Congrats to all the winners, and to all the inventors of the world.

    Congrats guys, You need a ray of light after all the bad luck with Sandy.

    Here’s hoping you get up and running again soon; I’m eagerly awaiting the arrival of my Replicator 2! Thanks for sending me an e-mail update after the storm to let me (and other customers) know you got through it okay.

    BTW, anybody out there who has a printer on order from MakerBot, don’t cancel your order out of frustration; They probably need your business more now than ever. Here’s hoping the storm amounts to a minor speed bump for you guys rather than a mountain to climb.

    I think it’s 50 best inventions, but that doesn’t make it any less cool!
