MakerBot Replicator 3D Printer


The MakerBot Replicator is a $2,899 3D printer which, according to reviews, generally doesn’t work. The software is buggy, the hardware is poorly made, and the manufacturer doesn’t seem to be able to adequately respond to problems. Of course, this is apart from the general complaint I have about 3D printers for home use, which is that making a plastic figurine shouldn’t cost nearly three thousand bucks.
