Replicator 2

In September 2012 Makerbot Industries introduced the Replicator 2. The new version 3D printer again increased the build envelope (285 mm × 153 mm × 155 mm or 11.2 in × 6.0 in × 6.1 in) and can print at 100 µm per layer. The dual extruder option was dropped, but the upgraded electronics, LCD display, and gamepad remain similar to the original Replicator. The firmware, desktop software and file formats were also changed in this version to support the additional accuracy and size. Unlike previous models, the Replicator 2 can only print PLA plastic, and does not include the heated build plate, extruder, or high-temperature settings for ABS plastic. The Replicator 2 is only sold pre-assembled.
