Makerbot Replicator 2 and Animation:Master v17.0
After a long wait today my first 3d printer has been delivered.
The Makerbot Replicator 2 is one of the most advanced low-budget-systems on the market.
Of course there are other systems like the Form 1 available, which even use the a little more precise Laserlithographie technique and which are not that much more expensive but the following costs for usage material are much higher, the print size is quite a lot smaller and the company does not have that much experience in the 3d printing area as Makerbot Industries.
And since Animation:Master v17.0 can export to the STL format now, I am looking forward to the end of the day :).
If you want to know more about these topics, please have a look at the Makerbot website and the Hash Animation:Master forum:
