Yet another year, yet another step nearer to having the ability to print out nearly any object you wish.

The Makerbot Replicator 2 ($2, 200) may be the latest such step, boasting a resolution capacity for 100 microns and a 410 cubic inch build volume for creating ever larger things.

It’s new black powder-coated steel chassis is more secure than ever, and just in case your building of useless stuff gets your conscience involved, you can rest assured knowing that it was designed and optimized for Makerbot’s new renewable bioplastic PLA filament.
