MakerBot Replicator 2 headed to Microsoft stores for “MakerBot Experience”

Aug 7, 2013

This summer the folks at MakerBot are pushing for the public to see how simple it can be to work with a desktop 3D printer by dropping by Microsoft stores throughout the USA. This move will have the "MakerBot Experience" expand beyond the few and far-between chances the public has had to see and use a MakerBot Replicator 2 to 15 "additional" Microsoft Stores across the country.

This expansion will be taking place starting this week, the experience expanding with MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printers and MakerBot PLA Filament to Microsoft Retail Stores now numbered at 18.


As we've seen relatively recently, MakerBot has been appearing at quite a few tech events not only in the United States, but abroad as well. We've seen the Replicator 2 working with Nokia to create custom-designed cases for the Nokia Lumia 820 as well as the Nokia Lumia 520. Have a peek at some up-close action here straight from Mobile World Congress 2013 from March of this year.

MakerBot also brought the Replicator 2 to the gaming universe this year for custom-made casings for the Android-toting OUYA. These cases were printed in PLA plastic as well as ABS plastic.
