Engineered and tested for reliable and faster 3D printing, the Replicator+ 3D Printer from MakerBot prints up to 30% faster than is predecessor and offers a 25% larger build volume. For improved reliability and precision, it features upgraded hardware, such as a redesigned gantry and z-stage. It has also been tested for over 380,000 hours of use. It is constructed using PC ABS with powder-coated steel reinforcements, as well as aluminum casting and extrusions for the motion components.
The Replicator+ features a build volume of 11.6 x 7.6 x 6.5"; a cubic build volume of 573 in3; a layer resolution of 100-400 microns; Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) printing technology that is compatible with Smart Extruder+ and Tough PLA Smart Extruder+ units; uses 1.75mm MakerBot PLA small and large spool filaments, as well as MakerBot Tough PLA large spool filaments; has a 1.8° step angle with 1/16 micro-stepping; 11 micron XY positioning precision; 2.5 micron Z positioning precision; and is equipped with a single 0.4mm extruder nozzle. Users may print their compatible CAD (.cad), STL (.stl), MakerBot (.makerbot), SolidWorks (.sldprt, .sldasm), InventorOBJ (.ipt, .iam), IGES (.iges, .igs), STEP AP203/214 (.step, .stp), CATIA (.CATPart, .CATProduct), Wavefront Object (.obj), Unigraphics/NX (.prt), Solid Edge (.par, .asm), ProE/Creo (.prt, .asm), VRML (.wrl), and Parasolid (.x_t, .x_b) files in an open print chamber via 10/100 Ethernet, Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n), or USB 2.0. The print bed itself is factory-leveled and constructed using a grip surface with a bendable Flex Build Plate.
The MakerBot Replicator+ is Cloud-enabled, allowing you to control and manage one or more printers over the cloud using MakerBot Print or MakerBot Mobile software. It can also be controlled using a built-in dial and an integrated LCD display, each of which allow you to maintain your 3D printer, preview print files, and access your object library. There is also a built-in 640 x 480 camera and this 3D printer operates using 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz. It is compatible with Windows 7 and 10 and Mac OS X 10.9 and later. Included is a MakerBot Replicator Smart Extruder+, a large MakerBot filament spool, a USB 2.0 Type-B to Type-A cable, a 4mm hex key, and a power cord.
