As part of MAKE’s research for our upcoming special issue, Make: Ultimate Guide to the 3D Printers (on newsstands Nov 20, 2012), we had an opportunity to take the new MakerBot Replicator 2 for a test drive. Here’s a tour of the new machine.

    The decision to do away with the heated bed and commit to a PLA-only platform is pretty brilliant, IMHO. PLA is better all around: melts cooler, doesn’t smell nasty, and is biodegradable. Streamlines and simplifies the design, too, by doing away with the bed heater and associated electronics.

    I’m wondering what that removable plate is. I want it on my machine if it’s easy to remove parts.
