Once a year, the iFD (International Forum of Design located in Hamburg, Germany) holds the renowned iF awards ceremony, celebrating cutting edge designs and their inventors within several categories. With the annual average submissions increasing to over 5,500 from designers located in over 70 countries and a 58-member jury panel of independent experts, the iF Design Award has solidified itself as the capstone of the design community.


Being extremely user-friendly, the Makerbot Replicator+ was at the top of the list for predicted winners with the expert professionals at Daemon3D Print. Receiving consistently positive feedback and reviews from our customers for its quick and easy production process and highly consistent results.


The Makerbot Replicator+ was designed to be simple, straightforward and convenient. The built-in camera and WIFI connectivity allow you to easily receive updates on your prints to the application on your PC and mobile. It’s compatibility with CAD 3D files and the optimal performance materials are tailored to withstand high volume print demands. The flexible build plate ensures clean and quick removal and the featured Grip Build allows for the highest quality of prints by virtually eliminating warping and curling, making the Makerbot Replicator+ effective and efficient for professionals and enthusiasts alike.


As Mark Palmer, head of experience design at MakerBot stated, “The MakerBot Replicator+ stands out in the desktop 3D printing category because it is designed to seamlessly fit into the workflow of designers and engineers. We developed the Replicator+ as part of our new 3D printing solution for professionals with the goal of accelerating and streamlining the iterative design process. The sleek and open industrial design invites professionals to keep the printer right on their desks, creating an immediate feedback loop in the prototyping process, especially in the early phases of concept modelling.”


At Daemon3D Print, we were delighted (although not surprised) to hear of the announcement of Makerbot’s Replicator+ winning an iF award for design in the product category. We congratulate the design team at Makerbot for making such a highly effective and efficient machine, and we look forward to assisting our customers in their production process of creating highly successful prints in 2017.
