Gadget of the Week – MakerBot Replicator Mini+
Published on January 12, 2017
3D printing is a technology with nearly limitless capabilities, whether that means helping to curb the plight of world hunger or help architects and engineers design the infrastructure of the future.
Now, you can have all the power of 3D printing at your fingertips, thanks to the MakerBot Replicator Mini+.
Long a staple at universities and Silicon Valley labs, 3D printing can be complicated for the average geek. The Replicator Mini+ is streamlined for the at-home user, boasting accessible, simple features and easy connectivity via Wi-Fi and USB, as well as compatibility with MakerBot’s Print software and mobile app.
And while it’s sleeker and quieter than other MakerBot models, there’s nothing truly small about the features of the Mini+, which offers 10% faster printing and 28% larger build volume than its predecessor, all backed by MakerBot’s comprehensive coverage plan and extensive testing (we’re talking 380,000 hours’ worth).
Ready to harness the construction tool of the future from the comfort of your very own classroom, lab, or home office? You can order the compact and portable MakerBot Replicator Mini+ for $999.
