MakerBot launches new 3D printing solutions

MakerBot, a specialist in the desktop 3D printing industry, has recently declared new 3D printing solutions that address the wider needs of professionals and educators. MakerBot believes its new solutions offer engineers and designers a faster and more effective way to develop ideas and offer educators a better way to integrate 3D printing in the classroom to teach creativity and problem solving.

The new MakerBot Print and Mobile applications are designed to allow professionals to easily integrate MakerBot into their workflow and help educators introduce their students to 3D printing. These applications help streamline the print preparation process, save time, and produce higher quality prints. The new MakerBot Replicator+ and Replicator Mini+ have been re-engineered and tested to provide improved performance—that means faster, easier, and more reliable printing with a bigger build volume. With the new MakerBot Slate Gray Tough PLA Filament Bundle, engineers can create more durable, high-impact strength prototypes and fixtures. For educators, MakerBot is also launching Thingiverse Education to discover 3D printing classroom content created by other educators.

To help engineers and designers take their prototypes to the next level, MakerBot is also releasing step-by-step guides that explain techniques such as gluing, sanding, painting, vacuum forming, brass inserts and silicon molding.
