Translucent Filament

Four new gem-toned colors that let your inspiration shine right through!

ABS Filament  

plafilament2MakerBot ABS Filament is the best, most consistent, and most tested ABS filament for MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printers.

MakerBot ABS Filament is good for detailed prints and can be used in conjunction with MakerBot Dissolvable Filament. The dissolvable filament acts as solid infill material.

MakerBot ABS Filament adheres well to kapton tape on heated build plate.

Dissolvable Filament

MakerBot Dissolvable Filament is designed for use as a solid infill material with MakerBot® ABS Filament.

The dissolvable material easily dissolves in limonene bath in just 8-24 hours (depending on size and geometry of print).

 

PLA Filament

absfilament1MakerBot PLA Filament is the best, safest, and most consistent filament for the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer.

MakerBot PLA Filament is a renewable bioplastic made from corn. All its dyes are FDA-approved as food safe and it’s guaranteed to have no heavy metals, phthalates, or BPA.

If you’re new to 3D printing, MakerBot PLA Filament is a good material to start with because it’s easy to use and performs well on most prints.

Flexible Filament

More flexible than MakerBot® PLA Filament, MakerBot Flexible Filament creates new opportunities to stretch the limits of 3D printing.

You can modify your prints by carefully heating them in hot water until they become translucent. The time this takes will depend on the density of the print. You can then reshape and mold them.

MultiScan Technology Enhances Your Scans

New MakerBot MultiScan Technology vastly expands the capabilities of the MakerBot Digitizer. MultiScan allows you to scan objects from multiple angles so that you can make higher quality models than ever before. Now, you can capture the top, bottom, and hidden parts of objects simply by changing the orientation of the object you’re scanning. Stay tuned for our next Digitizer Education blog for a complete rundown of this game-changing capability.

Additional Features

With MakerWare 2.4, we’re introducing a lighting acclimation feature that lessens the impact of strong overhead light on your scans. We’ve also upgraded our Extrusion Guards to improve stability, and implemented filament fan modulation to prevent filament clogging in the MakerBot Replicator 2.

Here is the full feature list:

1.  Added MultiScan Technology to MakerWare for Digitizer
2.  Added lighting acclimation which reduces halos from overhead lighting at the beginning of a scan, resulting in higher quality 3D models
3.  Added performance tracking to MakerWare
4.  Implemented new filament fan modulation on the MakerBot Replicator 2 to reduce PLA and Flexible Filament stringing
5.  Added ability to combine overlapping object meshes
6.  Created a more stable Extrusion Guard pattern
7.  Bug fix for temperature settings in the Make dialog only getting applied to the preheat temperature
8.  Bug fix for MakerWare crashing when custom profiles are created on 32-bit Windows systems
