MakerBot’s new solution for professionals offers engineers and designers a faster and more effective way to develop and test their ideas. WI-FI connectivity and tightly integrated desktop and mobile applications enable the Replicator+ to easily integrate into the design workflow. Compatibility with native CAD 3D files and high performance materials are tailored to meet the demanding needs of professionals. The MakerBot Replicator+ also features a flexible build plate, making it easy to remove larger prints by simply bending the plate. The new Grip Build Surface ensures that prints adhere better without the use of blue tape, resulting in improved reliability and reduced warping and curling.
