Announcing the Highest-Numbered Extruder ever to be released by MakerBot: Lucky Number Stepstruder MK7


That’s right folks, it’s finally here: the monumental, extraordinary Stepstruder MK7.  It’s extraordinary in that this is our first extruder designed from the ground up for 1.75 mm filament, and monumental in the sense that it’s…well…smaller than any of our previous extruder designs.  So small, in fact, that it might just be possible to use two of them for experimental Dual Extrusion!  (Ssshhhh….)

They said it couldn’t be done, and we said they’re wrong.  We have the technology.  We knew we could make a better extruder, one that’s smaller, more reliable, and easier to put together.  And has a higher number.

So tell me: do you feel lucky, punk?  Well do you?  Because you don’t need to: the MK7 will make it easier than ever to get great results from your MakerBot Thing-O-Matic.  The Stepstruder MK7 takes care of the luck for you!  Just choose the normal complete kit or one with a stepper driver if you’re upgrading from a MK5.

In all seriousness, a lot of work has gone into the design of this new extruder, and we’re really excited to release it.  Head on over to the store and check it out! ¡Awesolenté!
