Makerbots The MakerBot Replicator+ is Faster, Easier, Quieter 3D Printing and a 22% Bigger Build Volume than previous model It has a flexible build plate for easier part removal. Redesigned Z axis movement and now comes factory leveled. Honest review: The new software allows CAD-To-Print and multi machine management which is a real plus for schools and print labs. It is quieter, but not as big a leap to silence Makerbot may want you to believe. The build size is dramatic and the auto levelling seems perfect so far. The flex bed is great, but we recommend adding Buildtak for extra grip. All in all a professional machine easy to use.
THE ALL-NEW MAKERBOT REPLICATOR +
Engineered and Extensively Tested for Reliable, Faster 3D Printing
The all-new MakerBot Replicator+ combines unparalleled performance with superior results and lasting reliability. Re-engineered and tested for over 380,000+ hours, the Replicator+ prints high-quality concept models faster, easier, and with a 22% bigger build volume than it’s predecessor. For greater reliability, the Smart Extruder+ comes standard and key components within the printer are redesigned with stiffer materials and a sturdier construction.
With MakerBot’s powerful workflow tools, the Replicator+ streamlines desktop 3D printing for professionals and educators. MakerBot Print software allows you to import native CAD files, like assemblies and parts, remotely manage all connected printers over the Cloud, and optimize prints for speed and quality.
- 30% faster than the original model
- 22% larger - now 29.5 x 19.5 x 16.5cm (LxWxH)
- Improved gantry and Z-stage design with stiffer materials and a sturdier construction
- Better print adhesion and easier removal using the Flex Build Plate with Grip Build Surface. Prints adhere better to new Grip Build Surface resulting in reduced warping and curling. No blue tape required
- 28% Quieter printing allows for a more focused environment
FACTORY LEVELED and GRIP SURFACE
With the new Grip Surface (Build-tak users will be familiar with this type of surface already), prints adhere better, resulting in reduced warping and curling. And guess what? No more blue tape. Prints are also easier to remove with the new bendable Flex Build Plate. The build plate is also factory-levelled so your Replicator + is ready to go right out of the box.
The bed still slides out, so print removal is easier and safer.
Note : Although factory-leveled, if you do need to level, the convenient assisted leveling streamlines maintenance
- Swappable MakerBot Smart Extruder+ (note : extruder is a wearing part with only limited warranty)
- On-board camera for remote monitoring with 640x480 resolution
- Full-color LCD display for easy interaction and configuration of your printer
To ensure easy, accessible 3D printing, the MakerBot Replicator Mini+ comes with the Smart Extruder+ and all the standard features such as an on-board camera, as well as connectivity via Wi-Fi and USB cable.
The Replicator + is Cloud-enabled so you can control it remotely with MakerBot Print or the MakerBot Mobile app. With MakerBot Print, you can import Native CAD files, auto-arrange them during print preparation, and then print them on one or more printers. To get started printing quickly and easily, MakerBot Mobile offers an all-new guided wireless setup.
Get up and running quickly with the easy, guided wireless setup through MakerBot Mobile. Once youre ready, you can monitor and control your print jobs even when youre away via the 3D printers on-board camera.
FILAMENT - WHAT CAN IT PRINT?
The Makerbot + is designed to print PLA filament. PLA filament is environmentally friendly (biodegrading over 5-15 years) and fume free which makes it the perfect choice for classrooms, homes and workplaces alike. It is also an easy plastic to print with, which makes it the perfect choice for beginners. Lastly PLA has almost no shrinkage so it provides better engineering precision.
The Filament drawer is designed for thin spools (makerbot brand 900g and mini spools and Bilby 3d Mini spools. Larger spools require and external spool stand.
Abrasives and metals
Abrasive filaments are ones that are tough, like IRON and STEEL. These CAN NOT be printed on the Makerbot Mini. You can however print low percentage metal blends, like the Aluminium and Copper. We have also tested the Bilby brand Flex filaments in the smart extruder with great success, and Bilby brand PLA-Wood filament also prints perfectly.

This amazing filament is made from a mix of wood particles and bio-polymers, which can be used in your 3D printer to produce items that look like wood...best of all we have made it flexible enough to come on a spool, yet stronger so it does not snap like other brands
PLA Filament - 1.75mm - White - 200g Spool
Bilby3D PLA, Solid White in colour
PLA Filament - 1.75mm - Transparent - 200g Spool
This Bilby3D PLA filament is clear. The optical clarity will depend on how well each strand of filament that is printed melts with the surrounding material. If the strands are not pushed together, the curves of the strands will bend light giving it a white appearance (same way that air bubles in water look white). We have had some success with annealing the printed part by placing in an oven at around 80-100 degrees for 5-10mins.
