Open Source Hardware
MakerBot Industries believes in the power of sharing. We encourage MakerBot Operators to publish their designs to Thingiverse so that others may be inspired by their work and build on it. We lead by example by sharing the machine designs including the lasercut files and the software that runs our machines.

The Ultimate Engineering Tool.
The MakerBot Replicator is the ultimate engineering tool. Engineers can design for the MakerBot using a wide range of digital design tools. Young engineers can use simple design tools like TinkerCAD and professional engineers can design things to make on the Makerbot with high end tools like AutoCAD and Solidworks. Engineers love to be able to make their inventions quickly and iterate to make their product or invention the best it can be. That''s what being MakerBot Operator is all about.
