MakerBot Launches New 3D Printing Solutions for Professionals and Educators

MakerBot announced new 3D printing solutions that address the wider needs of professionals and educators. MakerBot's new solutions offer engineers and designers a faster and more effective way to develop ideas and offer educators a better way to integrate 3D printing in the classroom to teach creativity and problem solving. The new MakerBot Print and Mobile applications are designed to allow professionals to easily integrate MakerBot into their workflow and help educators introduce their students to 3D printing. These applications help streamline the print preparation process, save time, and produce higher quality prints. The new MakerBot Replicator+ and Replicator Mini+ have been re-engineered and tested to provide improved performance "that means faster, easier, and more reliable printing with a bigger build volume. With the new MakerBot Slate Gray Tough PLA Filament Bundle, engineers can create more durable, high-impact strength prototypes and fixtures. For educators, MakerBot is also launching Thingiverse Education to discover 3D printing classroom content created by other educators.

MakerBot Industries, LLC, a provider of desktop 3D printing technology, has announced a partnership with Tikkun Olam Makers, or TOM, to support the Bay Area Makeathon focused on assistive technology, sponsored by Google.org. Engineers, developers, designers, and hobbyists will come together to develop hardware and software prototypes designed to meet the needs of people with disabilities. Participants will have access to advanced manufacturing technologies, such as MakerBot 3D printers, to develop solutions that address the challenges of disabled individuals who can't find off-the-shelf products. MakerBot Learning 3D printing experts will also provide on-site support to assist participants in their projects. MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers are used by educators, engineers and designers to enhance education and transform the design process through Real-Time Prototyping. MakerBot provides the most comprehensive 3D ecosystem in the desktop 3D printing industry to make 3D printing more accessible.
