The MakerBot Replicator is here! It’s an amazing 3D printer which lets you print 3D objects in different colors. It has dual extrusion now which facilitates printing objects in two different colors simultaneously. Check out what Bre Pettis from MakerBot Industries has said about the new model.

“The MakerBot Replicator™ creates anything you can imagine with the new MakerBot Stepstruder™ MK8, the extruder is the part of the machine that turns raw feedstock, like ABS (what Lego® is made of) or PLA (a biodegradable material made from corn), into the objects you desire. You can order your MakerBot Replicator™ with single or dual MakerBot Stepstruders on it. By choosing the dual extrusion option, you’ll print with two different colors at the same time. MakerBot Dualstrusion™ unlocks the ability to make beautiful combinations of colors and opens the door to experimenting with multi-material objects”.
