Makerbot Replicator 2X
The MakerBot Replicator 2x is a 3D printer made by MakerBot. It uses a printing method known as Fused Deposition Modeling or FDM. FDM is an additive manufacturing technique in which filament is heated to its melting point and is extruded layer by layer following a predetermined computer design to create a 3D object. The MakerBot Replicator 2x is single extrusion which permits one color per print.
