Makerbot has today announced the availability of their new MakerBot Replicator Mini 3D printer which has this week started shipping out to those who pre-ordered the new desktop 3D printer and those that now wish to purchase one from today.
The MakerBot Replicator Mini 3D printer is one of Makerbot’s Fifth Generation 3D printers and was unveiled at this year’s CES 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas during January.
Makerbot explains a little more in their press release : “We see the MakerBot Replicator Mini as a turning point in the 3D printing industry. Much like the transition of the computer moving into the home 30 years ago, the MakerBot Replicator Mini is one of the first 3D printers to shift from the office to the home.
We’re excited to have the MakerBot Replicator 3D Printing Platform and our Fifth Generation 3D printing technology inspire creativity and innovation in adults and children alike. Everyone can benefit from having a MakerBot Replicator Mini, but we expect to see the largest impact of having this 3D printer in the home with children.
We believe that exposing children to 3D printing with a MakerBot Replicator Mini will change the way they think about the world and help prepare them for the jobs of the future.”
