MakerBot Takes Orders for the New MakerBot Replicator Mini Compact 3D Printer

MakerBot, the global leader in desktop 3D printing, is excited to announce it is now taking orders for one of its newest 3D printers, the user-friendly and affordable MakerBot® Replicator® Mini Compact 3D Printer. Orders may be placed online at makerbot.com/mini, by calling 347-334-6800, and at the three MakerBot retail stores in New York, Boston and Greenwich, Conn.

MakerBot believes the MakerBot Replicator Mini Compact 3D Printer is sized to transform a small desk in an office, home or classroom, into an exciting creativity center. Winner of four awards at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), MakerBot Replicator Mini Compact 3D Printer impressed CES attendees, and also drew the attention of media and CES award judges, winning the coveted CES 2014 Editors’ Choice Award from Popular Mechanics, CES 2014 Best in Show from Digital Trends and ZDNet, and Best of CES 2014 Greatest Hits from PC Pro. MakerBot has designed the MakerBot Replicator Mini to be a reliable, durable and easy-to-use desktop 3D printer. Designed to run the free MakerBot Desktop software, it provides the ability to print, manage and share 3D creations simply and seamlessly from a Mac or PC.

“Reflecting on the future of our products, I imagine a lot of them will look like the MakerBot Replicator Mini,” said Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot. “We’ve been working hard for years to make 3D printing easy; now, with the MakerBot Replicator Mini, it is easy. We view the MakerBot Replicator Mini as a versatile and tidy 3D printer that can fit almost anywhere – up at the Space Station, at an elite institution, or in a preschool.”

The MakerBot Replicator Mini Compact 3D Printer, to be manufactured in Brooklyn, N.Y., will be the lowest priced MakerBot 3D printer with a retail price of $1,375. Orders are now being taken and the company expects to begin shipping this spring.

The MakerBot Replicator Mini is also designed to be educational, entertaining and useful. With its One-Touch™ 3D printing, it has a maximum build volume of 10.0 L x 10.0 W x 12.5 H cm (3.9 L x 3.9 W x 4.9 H in) and offers plug-and-play features. It is optimized for speed, has a build plate that requires no leveling, and produces a default 200-micron layer resolution in 3D prints. The MakerBot Replicator Mini offers fifth generation MakerBot technology that MakerBot believes defines the new standard in 3D printing for ease-of-use, quality and reliability. The MakerBot Replicator Mini is optimized for MakerBot PLA Filament, available in 17+ fun colors, and offers the ability through MakerBot Desktop to download 3D models from Thingiverse.com, MakerBot’s 3D design community with more than 200,000 downloadable digital designs. It is also the perfect companion for the MakerBot Digital Store, where digital files may be purchased to 3D print original, fun and collectible content made for the MakerBot Replicator Mini and MakerBot’s other fifth generation 3D printers. The MakerBot Digital Store Series One Collections include fun and easy to 3D print collectibles such as: Around Town™, Chunky Trucks™, The Cosmic Cadets™, Dragons of Glastonbury™, Famous Flyers™ and PetPals.

Powered by the new, user-friendly MakerBot Replicator 3D Printing Platform, which includes an onboard camera, plug and play features, app and cloud enabled workflow, and Wi-Fi connectivity, the MakerBot Replicator Mini is designed to help define the standard for ease-of-use, quality and reliability in the consumer 3D printer market. The MakerBot Replicator Mini is also a great companion to the MakerBot® Digitizer™ Desktop 3D Scanner that helps unlock creativity by taking a physical object and quickly and easily turning it into a digital file that can then be 3D printed and shared. The MakerBot Replicator Mini Compact 3D Printer is part of the MakerBot 3D Ecosystem. “We believe that the MakerBot 3D Ecosystem helps fulfill the vision of a 3D printer for everyone,” noted Bre Pettis.

Shipping at the same time as the MakerBot Replicator Mini are two great apps intended to be compatible with the MakerBot Replicator Mini that will make 3D printing even easier with the introduction of MakerBot Mobile and MakerBot PrintShop. MakerBot Mobile is a free mobile app that is designed to give the power to monitor and control the MakerBot Replicator Mini directly from a mobile device. MakerBot PrintShop is a fun, easy and free way to create and 3D print all kinds of cool things, from jewelry to signs and more.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now.
