I have been teaching for 29 years and knew nothing about 3d printers. A local business offered to buy one for my class. Obviously I could't pass up the opportunity.

On advice from a fellow teacher I went with the MakerBot. Although my knowledge and experience are limited I am extremely satisfied with how easy it was to setup and begin printing.

I am also impressed by the support and help I have received from the company. Not only have they answered all of my questions, they email and call to see how I am doing. At this point in my experience I don't know what more I could ask for.

A great machine and the most user friendly of all brands that I looked at. It has a great user interface and MakerBot's Thingiverse with thousands of designs available to print is amazing. I've heard that jamming is problem with many 3D printers and I'm pleased to say that I haven't had a single occurrence.

When we first got the Makerbot 5th Generation we had some performance issues. However, Makerbot support was very helpful. They have proactively and consistently updated the firmware, software and extruders. So today this printer is doing a great job with excellent quality. I recommend this printer.

User friendly and love this printer! When I first saw the reviews on the replicator I was hesitant. After getting access to a printer for a fee days, I have to say it went off without a hitch. The PLA is much easier than ABS. Spent 3 days with it and had no issues.

My new MakerBot Replicayor is great! So far all I have done is print designs off of thingiverse, but I cannot wait to make my own models. The printer is very easy to operate and MakerBot desktop is great. I am very happy with my purchase!
