MakerBot Bundles Their 5th Generation Replicator & Z18 Printers To Offer a $400 Discount

Share this Article

Back in January, when MakerBot unveiled their three new 3D printers at the 2014 CES, there was quite the buzz. All three devices, packed with a slew of new features, were presented to the public for the first time. The three maker-2printers would cater to three very different market segments. The MakerBot Replicator Mini was ideal for those individuals looking for an affordable printer with exceptional quality. On the other hand, the 5th Generation MakerBot Replicator model targeted the mid range consumer market, and some small businesses. Finally, the big boy of them all, the MakerBot Replicator Z18 would mainly appeal to small and large businesses, looking to print larger items, while maintaining control from afar.

Although these machines were all produced assumingly for three different segments of the market, in every market there is an overlapping of consumers’ general tastes. There may be companies or consumers looking for multiple 3D printers, but they may not want to spend the big bucks for two of the Z18 machines, or perhaps they feel that two of the mid range machines would be kind of a repetitive purchase. Maybe the Z18 and the Replicator would be perfect for their needed uses. Afterall, what’s better then one MakerBot Replicator? How about two?

For those who have found themselves deciding on just which printers to purchase, today that decision may have been made just a bit easier. From now until August 31st, Makerbot will be offering a $400 discount when orders are placed for both the MakerBot Replicator 5th Generation, and the MakerBot Replicator Z18. Both printers would normally run you $9,298, but until the end of this month, they are available in a package deal for $8,998. Here are some of the general specifications for both of these machines:

MakerBot Replicator 5th Generation

Additionally, for those interested in the MakerBot Cart for the Replicator Z18 and the Filament Case, the price for these have also been reduced when purchased together, from $1,700 to $1,500. Certainly these deals are not for everyone, however, if you were on the fence, trying to decide which printers were best for you, this discount may sway you in one direction.
