We've finally got our hands on the Replicator 2 from MakerBot — here's what you can find in the box.
We're more than a little in awe of just how quickly home 3D printing has advanced. MakerBot's Replicator 2 is just AU$2540, has a build platform that can handle 410 cubic inches and a resolution of 100 microns.
Home fabricating is now absurdly easy and, more importantly, it's fun, with a big community of "fabbers' rising up to share "recipes" of different objects and objet d'arte.
So when you pop open the box, what's actually inside?
The unassuming and modest exterior hides a particularly cool piece of gear. We were finding it hard not to just tear in without a care.
