“We are thrilled to be bringing the range of MakerBot 3D printers into our line-up” says Simon Chandler, Managing Director. “MakerBot’s key quality in all the printers it produces is the user experience and orientation. The products are clearly designed around making the 3D printing process as simple as possible, which make the range of products great for first-time users or multiple users, such as in businesses”.
