Engage students in the innovative process of 3D printing used in real-world engineering and development with this full-featured desktop 3D printer. A super flat build plate, a draft-blocking enclosure, and completely re-engineered dual extruders. The Replicator™ 2X explores everything possible in desktop 3D printing today. The high-tolerance aluminum build plate is anodized for longevity and durability, and machined for crucial flatness to prevent warping or sagging that can affect print quality. Surface tape comes cut-to-size for smooth, hassle-free application, while better temperature control keeps build plate heated precisely and evenly throughout. Re-designed filament feeding system dramatically reduces stripping, skipping, and jamming, and convenient filament lever makes loading filament as easy as flipping a light switch. New thermal core design stablizes internal temperature for more reliable prints. Includes Software Bundle: MakerWare™ Bundle 2.0.
