Makerbot Releases New Extruder

Now this is some pretty hardcore dorkitude, but our buddies at Makerbot just released a new extruder for their building devices. Why is it special? Well, the first extruders did 3mm streams while this one does 1.75mm streams, increasing the “resolution” of the objects and question and allowing you to extrude two streams of hot plastic simultaneously.

I told you it was pretty dorky. This $199 extruder is pretty badass and is available now the Makerbot store. If you don’t know what an extruder or a Makerbot are, you may need to check out this hotness and then get back to us. It’s only the future of home fabrication, guys.
