CNET Editors' Rating
The good: The MakerBot Replicator is the most full-featured consumer 3D printer thanks to its dual-extruder print head and the largest print platform in its category.
The bad: 3D printing can be hard to get the hang of thanks to early-stage technology and fragmented, obtuse software, and $1,999 is a lot to pay to navigate that experience.
The bottom line: For those willing to invest the time and the money, the MakerBot Replicator will provide the most powerful consumer 3D printing experience available.
