MakerBot Announces MakerBot Replicator Z18 3D Printer Now Available For Order And Shipping Of The 5th Generation MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printers To Customers

Big things are building at MakerBot! MakerBot has two exciting announcements this week: order availability for the MakerBot® Replicator® Z18 3D Printer, MakerBot’s largest 3D printer to date, which is expected to ship this spring, and the start of shipping for the new fifth generation MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer!

Orders for the new MakerBot Replicator Z18 3D Printer with its massive build volume of 30.5 L x 30.5 W x 45.7 H cm (12.0 L x 12.0 W x 18.0 H in), can be placed starting today at makerbot.com/Z18 or by calling 347-334-6800. MakerBot believes that the MakerBot Replicator Z18 offers the best price/performance in its category and will be one of the most disruptive products of the year in the 3D printing industry due to the combination of its massive build volume and affordable price.

Also available with the MakerBot Replicator Z18 are the MakerBot Cart for the MakerBot Replicator Z18 and a MakerBot Filament Case, which are also expected to ship in the spring with the MakerBot Replicator Z18. The MakerBot Cart puts the MakerBot Replicator Z18 on casters at an ergonomic height that enables easy movement of the 3D printer. The MakerBot Filament Case holds XL or XXL spools of MakerBot PLA Filament and enables the 3D printing of large prints without worrying about running out of filament. Both of these accessories can be ordered separately or with the MakerBot Replicator Z18.

“We made the MakerBot Replicator Z18 for those who think big,” said Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot. “We believe the MakerBot Replicator Z18 is a game-changer in the world of 3D printers. We consider its massive build volume and its ability to bring professional-quality 3D printing to the user comparable to industrial 3D printers that are tens of thousands of dollars more. We view it as the 3D printer for large industrial models, engine prototypes, movie special effect models and the next generation spacecraft. We are using it in our own factory to make prototypes, jigs and fixtures. This 3D printer is very exciting for us and has already generated a lot of excitement in the industrial 3D printing community.”
