“ My cycle time went from 2 or 3 months to 2 or 3 days.
We made 40 or 50 iterations and came up with a very
good product, easy to mass produce. It would have been
impossible without the MakerBot Replicator 2X. ”
“ MakerBot hardware and software has been instrumental in
allowing us to do [3D bioprinting] research. Without the
ability to fabricate designs quickly, we wouldn’t be able
to do any of this. ”
“ The 3D printer, if used correctly, if accompanied
by the right ideas, could show your talent in a
much cheaper, easier way. ”
