Replicator 2

MakerBot Replicatorâ„¢ 2 Desktop 3D Printer

The tech just keeps getting better and better. Unfortunately, the price keeps pace. When I first started saving the average price for a 3d printer was around $1000. This version of the Replicator clocks in at $2200 with the dual color version coming in at $2800! On the plus side, though, the print resolution has gotten much better and they’re making headway on the software-usability front, so on balance I’d call it a win. The cheaper ones are still available but new ones are a huge improvement. Isn’t that always the case?

Had a setback in the MakerBot account a few months ago due to medical reasons, so I’m back at the $350 mark.
