Brooklyn, N.Y.-based 3D printer manufacturer MakerBot hosted a press conference today, where it unveiled new products, as well as its first retail storefront. In addition to the store, the company announced a new Replicator 2 3D printer for immediate availability, a higher-end Replicator 2X due out in Q1 2013, and new 3D printing software, dubbed MakerWare.
The Replicator 2 comes on the heels of the Replicator, which debuted at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show and went on sale at the end of January. The new model will cost $2,199,
This is truly amazing a 3D replicator for personal use for $2.199. These devices are not yet sophisticated enough to make a crown however they are plenty good enough to make custom impression trays, single use disposables, bite openers, space maintainers and all kinds of other do-dads for the office…or just for fun.
If the past is any indication the quality will go up and the price will come down. The possibilites are…amazing!!!
