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

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.
