To get started printing quickly and easily, MakerBot Mobile offers a guided wireless setup.

Flex Built Plate with Grip Build Surface

With the Grip Surface, prints adhere better, resulting in reduced warping and curling. Prints are also easier to remove with the bendable Flex Build Plate. The build plate is also factory-leveled so your Replicator+ is ready to go right out of the box.

Includes the MakerBot Smart Extruder+

Double the warranty of its predecessor, the Smart Extruder+ is a culmination of product design and 160,000+ hours of testing that delivers dependable and consistent performance using MakerBot PLA filament.

On-Board Camera

Remotely monitor your print progress from MakerBot Print and MakerBot Mobile.

MakerBot 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.

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+
