“ I was pleasantly surprised with how easy a MakerBot
was to use. The quality was on par with any industrial 3D
printed pieces we have commissioned previously. ”
Francis Bitonti, Multidisciplinary Designer Francis Bitonti Studio
“ We have easily gone through about 100 different turtle and
base station revisions for the Mimo . . . So we have easily saved about $60k just through iterating on the turtle design. ”

For MakerBot ABS Filament
Make snaps, living hinges, threaded objects and more with a ductile, petroleum thermoplastic with elastic deformation properties. Control heating and cooling better with a superflat heated aluminum build plate and a clear, six-sided, draft-blocking enclosure that helps prevent uneven cooling, shrinking and cracking.
Layer Resolution
Speed your way to demonstrations and presentations with settings that range from fast-draft to finer resolution. Get smooth-to-the-touch surfaces that don’t need sanding, finishing or post-production.
