Watch the Buildatron Series 2 replicator in action as it builds an object before your eyes. Our new series 2 Free Form Fabrication (FFF) system is now available for home consumers, small businesses, and educational and government institutions. In this video you can see the machine as it fabricates a torso .stl file using 1.75mm plastic polymer filament.

Build a Revolution with the Buildatron 2




On the Buildatron 2 3D Replicator, we have developed many important upgrades that are vital for quality, reliability, and ease of use. Depending on your operation’s needs, we have 2 models: the Fully Assembled and Do It Yourself (DIY) versions of Buildatron 2 (see specs on the Buildatron Store).
The Buildatron 2 3D Replicator is unique and class leading for many reasons, but there are a few specifics that separate us from our main competitors at the $2499 and $1599 price points. To being with, we are using 12 LM8UU bearings which give our printer the most advanced and consistent X, Y, and Z movement system. The Buildatron 2 also has 4 times the print volume at approximately 8in x 8in x 5in (200mm x 200mm x125mm) compared to the class standard of 4in  x 4in x 5in. We have also worked extremely hard to develop and include a standard software package to run and manage your replication systems. Buildatron, is the only machine in its class to give you this value and as you will soon find out, you can easily prepare, process, and operate your Buildatron 2 3D Replicator.

Strength, Beauty, and Access Seamlessly Integrated.




The Buildatron 2 3D Replicator case is an engineering breakthrough that puts our enclosure design in a class of its own. The easy-access interior of the Buildatron 2 feels like the well organized 3D Replicator it is. You don’t need to turn the system on its side or struggle to reach into awkward spaces to make changes. Just detach the magnetic hood for instant access to everything. Drop in your ABS/PLA plastic onto the internal spool system or swap a simple component to customize your machine. It has taken months to design and optimize our case for production and it comes standard with all of our packages.
