Latest Version: 2.4.1
Featuring MakerBot Multiscan Technology
Yes. But performance-engineered
over thousands of hours to provide
you with the best quality and most
reliable 3D printing experience.
The simple yet powerful
interface lets you easily move,
rotate, and scale your 3D models.
Printing is made easy, but
control is still in your hands.
A powerful algorithm slices your digital
file into very thin layers to prepare it for
3D printing. Experts can dig deeper
into options and settings.

Stabilize and Support

Simple checkboxes provide even greater printing success

Thin, pull-away, support material for overhangs or between print elements. Supports allow you to print more complex models.
An additional, stabilizing surface at the print’s base. Rafts help ensure adhesion to the build plate and better print quality.

Double the Impact

Unlock the dual-extrusion power of your
MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer

Multimaterial Support
Print with color-matched rafts and supports. Or set individual extruders to use MakerBot® ABS Filament or MakerBot® Dissolvable Filament.
Extrusion Guards
Improve dual-extrusion prints with these ultra-thin, wraparound barriers. They’re the visible result of a filament preparation process that helps ensure the high quality of each applied layer.
