The biggest complaint so far when it comes to consumer-level 3D printing has been the barrier to access — 3D printers are too expensive, too hard to use, too large to fit into a small space, and materials are too hard to come by. The MakerBot Replicator Mini ($1,400) takes huge leaps into making 3D printing at home a lot more approachable. By reducing the price to almost a quarter of their previous models, they've made it a little more attainable for the average guy, while making its footprint considerably smaller. With a reimagined interface, wireless connectivity, a digital store for downloading designs, and touch-and-print capability, it's never been easier to get started with rapid prototyping and modeling. An onboard camera for monitoring the process, a replaceable extruder, and compatibility with Makerbot PLA filament just make it that much easier.
