Makerbot Replicator is one of the most popular desktop FDM 3D printers. This model is popular and often imitated by other manufacturers. Since its release, the design of the printer has been constantly under improvements. At the moment you can acquire devices of the fifth generation of the popular series. The machine is designed to print with polylactide (PLA) material using a single extruder. 

The maximum size of models can reach up to 252 x 199 x 150mm with a minimum thickness of the applied layer of 100 microns. The printer features a control module with an LCD screen, USB port, wireless connection (Wi-Fi) and Ethernet interface.

Makerbot Replicator+ was used by Local Motors, a disruptive tech and automotive company that designs and builds vehicles.    
The company uses the tough PLA filament and the Makerbot Replicator+ cloud-enabled desktop 3D printer to make high-impact, durable strength fixtures and prototypes for metal parts as you can see in the picture below.

Another simple but quite interesting example is this headphone stand printed in ISU colors. The idea is pretty simple but the stand looks quite stylish. The model can be found on Thingverse. Thingiverse model: 2167626.

Print quality

The Makerbot Replicator+ can print at 100 microns. The quality is not the same as with more expensive models but it is more than enough for household use and creating prototypes.

This prototype looks like a real engine block made of steel.

The Makerbot Replicator+ has a 0.4 mm nozzle, giving you the best balance between speed and detail.

Have a look at this model of Albert Einstein. What could be more detailed? You can even see his wrinkles.

Makerbot Replicator+ prints with MakerBot PLA Filament and additional materials such as bronzefill, copperfill, woodfill and others. 

The extruder comes with a fan for printing with PLA-type materials. By cooling the model down, it solves the issue of warping and stringing. The skeletal foot in the picture below was 3D printed with the new MiniFill version of Makerbot Print software which cuts printing time by 30%. The model is printed with PLA.

The print bed is flexible. It allows you to easily remove the printed objects.

Unlike many FDM 3D printers, the Makerbot Replicator+ has a heated print bed and closed print chamber. This means it can safely print with ABS-type materials.

The Makerbot Replicator Mini only works with own-brand filament. This ensures quality, as all the branded materials go through a strict quality assurance process.

Build volume

The build area of the printer is 11.6 x 0.8 x 0.6 inches (295 x 195 x 165 mm). With such a print volume you can even create real-size parts of the human skeleton, like you can see in the picture below.

And they make for great pencil holders, too! Printed with Carbon Fiber PLA.

Printer controls

The printer is controlled via PC or the built-in LCD interface.
