MakerBot Replicator Mini

Tool was given the opportunity to help out with initial design development of the Replicator Mini.  More specifically, we helped define it’s intended function, outward size, and explore a wide variety of forms.  We were pleased to see that that final form was very simliar to our design intent and that Makerbot added some other cool things of their own.  Like internalizing the spool…a surprisingly difficult challenge at this size of printer.

The Mini was indicated as amongst the best at CES 2014 by multiple publications, including Digital Trends, Popular Mechanics, PC Pro, and ZDNet.
