MakerBot Replicator Z18 3D Printer

The best price/performance printer in the professional 3D printer category

The Replicator Z18 3D Printer from MakerBot allows you to print large, detailed objects up to 12" in width and depth, and up to 18" in height. To ensure accurate printing and to minimise warping even throughout lengthy print jobs, the Z18 features a heated build chamber to maintain a consistent temperature, and a polycarbonate ABS build plate that is resistant to temperature extremes.

For on-board control of your printer, the Z18 features a 3.5" full-colour LCD display and intuitive dial. Access your object library, see previews of your 3D model files, and employ utilities to set up and maintain your 3D printer.

The Z18 incorporates an on-board camera for print monitoring and sharing to MakerBot Thingiverse and social networks. Accessible from the MakerBot software and mobile app, the Replicator Z18 also automatically takes reference pictures of final prints and stores them in your cloud storage library.

Free downloadable software, MakerBot Desktop, helps you find, organise, and prepare your 3D files for printing. Send files to your Replicator Z18 over a USB or Ethernet cable, or insert a USB flash drive with your file directly into the printer. MakerBot is also planning a firmware update that will soon allow you to send your file wirelessly through Wi-Fi. The Z18 is compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux computers.

What MakerBot are saying

"The MakerBot Replicator Z18 was named for its large z-axis that produces 3D prints up to 18 inches in height. This is a massive scale for a 3D printer and comparable to 3D printers that cost tens of thousands of dollars more," noted Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot.

"We believe that the MakerBot Replicator Z18 is going to disrupt the industry in that it enables 3D printing of large-scale and complex prototypes and models that were previously out of range for the creative community, many of whom include super-users of 3D printing, the engineers, architects and educators. We are really excited to see what our customers will 3D print with it."
