/Review – MakerBot Replicator+

MakerBot Released a new 3D-printer! The MakerBot Replicator+ I’ve been trying one out as part of testing at Creative Tools (authorized MakerBot reseller in northern Europe).

This video contain BETA-features that are now improved/updated. Look further down for updates!

The video is quite long, instead of chopping stuff away I made a menu that works with the annotations in the viewer (make sure you turn them on). If you want to quick jump, here is a few marks in time that are interesting.

  • 00:46 – Main menu
  • 00:59 – Intro + Whats New
  • 02:42 – Unboxing + Beauty-shots ( 05:38 )
  • 06:54 – Setting up the MakerBot Replicator +
  • 12:17 – Software (setup, new features and much more)
  • 24:53 – Awesome 3D-printing
  • 26:36 – Final conclusion



The 3DBenchy and engine block in the start were printed on a beta-firmware. I tried the Benchy again after launch (and update to firmware 2.0.6.x) and it looks much better, see below. 0.2mm “standard” settings.

3dbenchyUpdate 2; I’ve not printed more and got some nice close ups of the prints in the video for you to study.



As always, show manufacturers and me that you like my style of videos by sharing and clicking that like-button! Thank you!

    Saw the video in 3Dprinting group on facebook. It’s interesting how many are hating even before seen the printer or heard anyone use it. I guess your video shows that it’s a good step in the right direction. Still I doubt I go buy one for my home

      Hi James, Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, I’m trying to be objective and this printer really is not for home-use. There are plenty others for that 🙂
