Single Extruder with MakerBot PLA Filament
THE NEW STANDARD IN
DESKTOP 3D PRINTING
Founded in 2009, Brooklyn-based MakerBot® has grown to be a
global leader in desktop 3D printing. MakerBot had 16% market
share of all 3D printers (industrial and personal) made from 2009
to the end of 2011.1 In 2011, MakerBot had 21.6% market share. There
are over 13,000 MakerBot Desktop 3D Printers in use by engineers,
designers, researchers, and people who just like to make things.
The MakerBot Store at 298 Mulberry Street in the NoHo
district of Manhattan offers people the chance to learn about
desktop 3D printing, see demonstrations, and buy all kinds of
cool products made on MakerBot Desktop 3D Printers.
At MakerBot’s Thingiverse.com, MakerBot owners can access
and contribute to a “universe of things.” Thingiverse has
over 28,000 projects, models, and useful things that can be
downloaded and made for free.
MakerBot has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall
Street Journal, The Economist, Wired, The Colbert Report,
Fast Company, Engadget, Make: Magazine, Rolling Stone,
Time.com, IEEE Spectrum, CNN, Financial
Times, NPR, Vogue Italia and elsewhere.
The original MakerBot Replicator was
named “Best Emerging Tech” at the
2012 Consumer Electronics Show in
Las Vegas. The MakerBot Replicator 2
Desktop 3D Printer is another huge
step forward for MakerBot.

Enough room to make it BIG
To raise our standard, we made the build volume bigger in all
three dimensions. The MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer
has a build volume of 410 cubic inches, so you can think and
build bigger than ever. That’s 37% more volume than the
original MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer. You will make
big things and entire multi-part projects at one time. Combined
with our speed improvements, you now get much more done
in much less time. Finally a desktop 3D printer made

PLA FILAMENT:
LESS CURLING
AND SHRINKING
Optimized for MakerBot PLA Filament
Now you can do your highest-quality work and do a favor for the environment, too. We’ve
adapted the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer to work perfectly with PLA, the
renewable bioplastic that sticks to the platform reliably with practically no peeling, curling,
sliding, or shrinking. With MakerBot PLA Filament, you will make professional-quality prototypes
and huge pieces with dimensional stability. What’s more, you will use 32% less energy than
building with ABS filament*. When it comes to build material, MakerBot PLA Filament is the
new standard in desktop 3D printing.
KEY FEATURES
·Rely on builds that stick to the platform;
Practically no peeling, curling, or sliding.
·Build big with dimensional stability.
·Expand your creative palette
with a whole new range of matte,
translucent, shimmery, metallic, and
sparkly colors.
·Super strong, great for moving parts
and complex assemblies.
·Ready to print in less than two minutes.
·Minimal shrinkage factor means
smooth builds with no cracks.
·32% energy savings versus building
with ABS Filament.
·Make things that feel great to the touch.
·Design accurately: get what you expect.
· Environmentally friendly.

Filament is an
ideal material for
even the most
