The MakerBot Replicator Mini Compact 3D Printer, one of MakerBot’s new Fifth Generation 3D printers, is being shipped to customers starting Monday.
The MakerBot Replicator Mini is powered by the MakerBot 3D Printing Platform; has an on-board camera to monitor its 3D printing via the soon-to-be-released MakerBot Mobile app; and features the MakerBot Replicator Smart Extruder.
“We see the MakerBot Replicator Mini as a turning point in the 3D printing industry. Much like the transition of the computer moving into the home 30 years ago, the MakerBot Replicator Mini is one of the first 3D printers to shift from the office to the home,” said Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot.
The MakerBot Replicator Mini Compact 3D Printer is priced at $1,375 and is available online at makerbot.com or through the MakerBot Retail Stores in New York, Boston and Greenwich, Conn.
MakerBot also expects to ship its other new 3D printer, the MakerBot Replicator Z18 3D Printer, in June.
