The Makerbot Question: Who should or shouldn’t use it?

Published 05/18/2015

As a 3D printer reseller, as well as prototyping service, R&D Technologies interacts with people from all kinds of business: from inventors to doctors, from engineering students to Presidents of large corporations, everyone may have a need for 3D printing, but to different extents. Here is a brief background on Makerbot: in 2013, Stratasys purchased Makerbot Corporation. I actually started working with R&D Technologies at the same time of the acquisition. Makerbots run from $1,300-$6,000. As a Stratasys reseller and service bureau, Makerbot sent our company the Makerbot Replicator 2 for our engineers to play with. It has been both a fun and functional tool for us. I have a 3D printed horse (my favorite animal) on my desk. We have Makerbot-printed Christmas ornaments on the building’s Christmas tree. One of my coworkers printed a fixture for his car mirror that saved him from needing to purchase an entire new mirror assembly.
