MakerBot Replicator (5th Generation) 3D Printer

This would be good ONLY if the unit has the latest version of the Smart Extruder. Otherwise, you’ll end up having to replace it for $200 in no time.

Having 3D renders instead of actual product photos always rubs me the wrong way. Especially when the results of the products operation is also a 3D rendered object.

The pictures clearly demonstrate that your CGI device will create beautiful CGI objects!

Unless you have experience with this model and know what you are getting into, I suggest you stay away. These printers are notorious for their unreliability. There are a lot more lower cost choices for 3D printers and the list is growing. For example, Monoprice sells several models to fit different budget levels.
