MakerBot Products | A Big Day At MakerBot

Posted by on Monday, September 30, 2013 in Uncategorized

MakerBot has been known to release groundbreaking new products, but today, we’re releasing three. That’s got to be a record.

Today, we’re shipping two new types of filament, and releasing a new version of MakerWare for download. Tomorrow, October 1st, a little invention called the MakerBot® Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner will ship from our factory in Brooklyn to 3D pioneers around the world. Visit the posts below to learn more about this massive triple-headed release.

    Oh man, I am so excited! The flexible filament we all knew was coming, but to release a newer and improved DISSOLVABLE filament, too! This is fantastic!!

    By the way, what are the compatibilities with the Replicator 1 Dual? Can we use all the new features of MakerWare? (Flexible filament support, Dissolvable filament support, and the Dualstrusion ExtrusionGuard feature?)

    The dissolve able filament is probably High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS). HIPS dissolves in limonene. I can’t wait to get a dual extruder Makerbot to try it out!
