This MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer is a full-featured desktop 3D printer built for daredevils and experimenters to explore the frontiers of 3D printing. Equipped with two extruders and optimized for the traditional thermoplastic ABS filament, the MakerBot Replicator 2X is prepared for future developments in 3D printing.

With a super-flat build plate, a draft-blocking enclosure, and completely re-engineered dual extruders, the Replicator 2X explores everything possible in desktop 3D printing today. In addition, it makes sure you’re future-proof for developments just over the horizon.

Features of the MakerBot Replicator 2X:
  • For 3D printing experts who want to explore the frontiers of 3D printing.
  • Full-featured desktop 3D printer with experimental dual extrusion is optimized for printing with MakerBot ABS Filament.
  • Create professional-quality, high-resolution prototypes and complex models.
  • Print in two colors through precisely aligned dual nozzles, without swapping filament or pausing your print.
  • Be ready for cutting-edge developments in ABS filament technology and multi-material 3D printing.
  • Experiment with overhangs and internal structures using MakerBot® Dissolvable Filament as solid infill material.
  • The super-flat heated aluminum build plate is optimized for ABS and machined for crucial flatness to prevent warping or sagging that can affect build quality.
  • Six-sided draft-blocking enclosure prevents uneven cooling, shrinking, and cracking.
  • New thermal core design stabilizes the internal extruder temperature for more reliable prints.
