FDM OR FUSED DEPOSITION MODELING
MakerBot’s 3D Printers rely on a technology called Fused Deposition Modeling or FDM. It uses an extruder, which acts similar to a hot glue gun. Plastic filament is fed in through the top, is melted at 215℃, and finally is “extruded” out of a small nozzle into the layers that build a 3D print.
MakerBot 3D Printers know where to move using a three dimensional cartesian coordinate system which defines every point of a 3D model with a unique position along the X, Y, and Z axes. The coordinates are fed to the printer from MakerBot Print and MakerBot Mobile.
SOLUTIONS DESIGNED FOR HOW YOU WORK
Quickly and effectively incorporate 3D printing into your workflow with native CAD support, cloud-connected printers, guided wireless setup, and improved file management.
PRINT DURABLE, HIGH-IMPACT PROTOTYPES AND FIXTURES
Created for engineers and designers, MakerBot Tough PLA Filament allows you to print durable, high-impact strength prototypes and fixtures. It’s as tough as ABS and as reliable as PLA.
BUILT FOR RELIABILITY AND HIGH QUALITY CONCEPT MODELING
MakerBot’s printers are rigorously tested for over 380,000 hours to deliver reliability and the print precision needed for accurately representing your conc
“The software alone is the gold standard by which all other 3D printers must be judged.”
“I highly recommend the MakerBot Replicator Mini+.”
“You’ll be hard pressed to find a printer that works out of the box as seamlessly as the Replicator+.”
