Makerbot has just announced the launch of an EU division called Makerbot Europe in order to replicate its US 3D-printing success overseas. The company has already been successfully selling its Replicator Mini (above) and other models through distributor Hafner's Buro in Europe. However, it decided

The Home Depot's core business revolves around helping you craft things, so it stands to reason that you'd eventually find 3D printers there, doesn't it? Sure enough, that's what's happening today. You can now buy MakerBot's Replicator line at both the retailer's online store as well as a dozen

If you want some truly heavy-duty 3D printing, you'll be glad to hear that MakerBot's Replicator Z18 is now available for pre-order. Pay $6,499 and you'll get to craft objects up to a lofty 18 inches tall once the printer ships this spring. Should that be a tad overpowered, you'll be just as ple

When Bre Pettis unveiled MakerBot's Digitizer, you couldn't wipe the smile off his face. And, upon opening our own unit, it's easy to understand why. When you lift the plastic unit, swaddled in black foam, out of its cardboard box, you feel like you're stepping into the future. 3D scanning isn't e

Between this and the Arduino, you'd think NASA's Swamp Works was a hackerspace -- though, perhaps in a sense, the research facility kind of is. And really, between the organization's on-going fascination with the potential of 3D printing and a desire to meet budgetary concerns, we probably shouldn

The year of 3D printers? It's sure looking like it from where we're sitting. There are more companies at CES 2013 promoting consumer versions of the technology than ever before. Of course, MakerBot's not going to sit idly by and watch this all go down. The Brooklyn-based company is set to show off

After the news-filled event MakerBot held, just down the street from the Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn, we found a fleet of cars ready to ferry us back to Manhattan. The cars weren't there to return the press to their various offices, instead they shuttled us en-masse to the brand new MakerBot Sto

MakerBot just took the wraps off the Replicator, a new 3D printer that solves one of the technology's biggest problems at the moment -- printing large. Of course, you still can't, say, print yourself up a car just yet, but the Replicator does, at the very least, take a baby step in that directi

Singulus has announced that even its \"significantly\" raised sales projections for Blu-ray duplication machines may have been to low, after exceeding its own sales forecast for the first half of the year, while predicting more orders coming soon. The manufacturer is aiming to take over 65 percent of

Yeah yeah, we know the Trekkie lines are cheap shots, but anyone dork enough to verbalize a desire for a replicator with a straight face deserves at least a bit of gentle ribbing. Oddly enough, Darpa's desires for such a device aren't terribly far-fetched. See, those war nerds are looking for a disp
