MakerBot Z18 Essentials overview

  • 1Description

The Z18 Essentials Pack from MakerBot combines several basic items that users will need in order to get started with 3D printing. Included with this manufacturer's bundle are the MakerBot Replicator Z18 3D Printer, a Smart Extruder+, a large 10-pack of PLA filament, a MakerBot Cart for the MakerBot Replicator Z18, a pack of Z18 Build Plate Tape, and a MakerCare Preferred Card, which provides one year of coverage under the MakerCare Preferred Protection Plan.

  • Replicator Z18 3D Printer

    The Replicator Z18 3D Printer from MakerBot allows you to print large, detailed objects up to 12" in width and depth, and up to 18" in height. To ensure accurate printing and to minimize warping even throughout lengthy print jobs, the Z18 features a heated build chamber to maintain a consistent temperature, and a polycarbonate ABS build plate that is factory and resistant to temperature extremes.

    For on-board control of your printer, the Z18 features a 3.5" full-color LCD display and intuitive dial. Access your object library, see previews of your 3D model files, and employ utilities to set up and maintain your 3D printer.

    The Z18 incorporates an on-board 320 x 240 camera for print monitoring and sharing to MakerBot Thingiverse and social networks. Accessible from the MakerBot Print software and MakerBot Mobile App, the Replicator Z18 also automatically takes reference pictures of final prints and stores them in your cloud storage library.

    Free downloadable software, MakerBot Print, helps you find, organize, and prepare your 3D files for printing. Send files to your Replicator Z18 over a USB or Ethernet cable, or insert a USB flash drive with your file directly into the printer. The Z18 is compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux computers.

    Ultra-Tall Build Volume
    The chief feature of the Z18 is its significant build volume. Print an object an entire foot in length and width, and up to a foot and half in height.
    Supports XL and XXL Filament Spools
    MakerBot designed extra-large capacity filament spools expressly for the Z18, to ensure that your large, lengthy project can print without interruptions for adding more filament. XL spools supply 5 lb of PLA filament, while XXL spools supply 10 lb. The Z18 has a push-to-open drawer at the base to hold a large spool of filament, but XL and XXL spools must be fitted into a filament case or other spool system.
    MakerBot Replicator Smart Extruder+
    The MakerBot Replicator Smart Extruder+ detects filament absence and automatically pauses your print. It can also send notifications to the MakerBot Mobile app. The Smart Extruder+ is easily removable and replaceable if necessary.
    Heated Build Chamber
    The Z18 features a heated chamber that maintains an even temperature during lengthy print jobs that can last for days. Keeping your print at an even temperature helps prevent curling and warping.
    Flexible Build Plate
    The Z18's build plate is made of flexible polycarbonate plastic which makes it easier to remove your prints. Instead of scraping and peeling your finished object from the build plate, which is especially difficult with the large print sizes made possible by the Z18, simply flex and bend the polycarbonate build plate until your print is completely detached.
    On-Board Camera
    The Replicator Z18 has an on-board camera for print monitoring and easy sharing to MakerBot Thingiverse and social networks. It is accessible through the MakerBot Print software and automatically takes reference pictures of final prints and saves them to your cloud storage library.
    3.5" Full Color LCD Display
    With a 3.5" full-color LCD display, you'll be able to access your object library and see previews of your 3D model files right on the Replicator Z18. The on-board interface and intuitive dial are designed to provide a user-friendly experience; while the on-board utilities help you set up and maintain your printer.
    Four Ways to Print
    Connect to your Replicator Z18 in any of four ways - via USB stick, USB cable, Ethernet cable, or wirelessly via Wi-Fi.
    Full-Featured Software
    The MakerBot Desktop software is a free download from MakerBot. It allows you to store, organize, and access 3D design files in your personal cloud-enabled library. You can also find, buy, and prepare your files from one central location.
    Software Supported 3D File Types
    MakerBot (.makerbot), STL (.stl), 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, .prt., .asm, .asm.), VRML (.wrl), Parasolid (.x_t, .x_b)

  • Replicator 5th-Gen/Z18 Smart Extruder+

    The swappable MakerBot Replicator 5th-Gen/Z18 Smart Extruder+ improves upon the previous iteration of MakerBot Extruders by delivering enhanced connectivity between the Extruder and the 3D printer, improved homing, reduced instances of filament clogging, and fewer filament jams-all of which translates to improved reliability, longevity, and overall performance.

    The Smart Extruder+ minimizes downtime by enabling you to replace a worn extruder in minutes. Its modular design lets you plan for the natural wear common to 3D printing extruders. By keeping a spare Smart Extruder+ handy, you'll be able to save time and keep the production flowing.

    Improved connectivity between the extruder and the 3D printer
    Reduced instances of filament clogging and fewer filament jams
    Easy to swap or replace
    Detects filament absence and automatically pauses your print
    Sends notifications to MakerBot Desktop and MakerBot Mobile apps

  • 1.75mm PLA Filament (Large Spool, 10-Pack)

    This 10-pack of 1.75mm PLA Filament from MakerBot contains one large, 2 lb spool of each MakerBot True Color filament - True Red, True Orange, True Yellow, True Green, True Blue, True Purple, True Black, True White, Cool Gray, and Warm Gray.

    This filament is used with MakerBot PLA Printers to print 3D objects.  Since PLA, or polylactic acid, is a bioplastic derived from corn, it doesn't emit toxic fumes when melted in the course of 3D printing.

    Use this filament with 3D printers intended to work specifically with PLA, since they are engineered to cool the object rapidly after extrusion so that the PLA will retain its shape.

  • 1-Year MakerCare Preferred Protection Plan for the Replicator Z18 3D Printer

    The 1-Year MakerCare Preferred Protection Plan from MakerBot provides one year of coverage for your Replicator Z18 3D Printer, with a 1-business day response time and coverage for unlimited qualifying incidents. If this warranty is not purchased, then your Replicator Z18 will be covered by MakerBot's limited six-month warranty. However, if you do opt to add this one year of protection, it will need to be bought within 60 days of the purchase date of your Replicator Z18 and is valid for one year from the purchase date of your Replicator Z18.

    Please be aware that the maximum amount of coverage that can be purchased is three years. If you initially buy one year of coverage and want to extend it, this can be done, but any additional coverage purchased after 60 days must be in the form of MakerBot's 1-Year Renewal. This one year plan can be extended up to two times with the renewal, for up to three years of coverage. Also, if you purchase MakerCare coverage and it expires, you'll have up to 60 days after its expiration to renew it, should you desire.
