MADE’s best entry-level desktop 3D printer is the Makerbot Replicator +. The Makerbot Replicator is an additive manufacturing machine that feeds plastic through a heated nozzle and then lays it out layer by layer to create a part. This allows the 3D printer to create parts that are difficult or impossible to create using traditional manufacturing techniques. The Makerbot uses G-code to execute its movements and is a good introduction to CNC machines.

MADE’s 3D printers are provided in partnership with Computer Aided Technology, a St. Louis distributor of high-end 3D printers.
