MakerBot Mobile | Everything MakerBot on Your Smartphone
Today, MakerBot is once again setting the standard in easy, accessible 3D printing technology. We’re delighted to unveil MakerBot Mobile for iOS, which adds a revolutionary layer of convenience and ease to your 3D printing workflow by allowing you to access everything MakerBot from your mobile device. Plus, it’s the first mobile app capable of using the cloud to prepare your digital designs for 3D printing!
Prepare Digital Designs for 3D Printing
Choose a downloadable digital design from Thingiverse or any 3D model file stored in your MakerBot Cloud Library. Use MakerBot cloud servers to optimize your design, as well as slice it for 3D printing, layer by layer. MakerBot Mobile does all the work for you so all you have to do is confirm the print on your MakerBot Replicator 3D Printer.*
Thingiverse at Your Fingertips
See something you want to 3D print on Thingiverse, the world’s largest 3D design community? With MakerBot Mobile, you have hundreds of thousands of 3D downloadable digital designs at your fingertips wherever you go. Add models to your collections, upload images of your prints as an “I Made One”, or share them on your social networks.
Monitor Your Prints and More
You can also use MakerBot Mobile to monitor and control your MakerBot Replicator 3D Printer. During a print, your MakerBot Replicator 3D Printer’s on-board camera sends MakerBot Mobile an image of your printer’s build area every three seconds so you can check your print progress. You can also cancel or pause a print, and receive notifications when MakerBot cloud servers finish prepping your 3D model for printing.
Coming Soon: More Features
MakerBot Mobile 1.0 is packed with features, but our software team isn’t slowing down. Future updates will include remote monitoring over 3G and 4G wireless networks, and notifications when your Fifth Generation MakerBot Replicator 3D Printer runs out of filament, requires your attention, or completes a print.
