Rated 2.6 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst 3D Printer on the market This printer looks nice and is packed full of features however you will NEVER get to use the features because the "dumb" extruder jam 9 out of 10 prints. We have wasted 2 xL spools of filament with failed prints. We have gone through 8 "dumb" extruders. This machine was supposed to assist in teaching the design class however it has been a TOTAL waste of time and money. DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE!!! February 24, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Had to return it today After multiple attempts to get my printer to print with consistency I gave up. I had filament jams and then homing errors. After i would calibrate and level the build plate it would still print in the air. I don't know. It was frustrating. The software was amazing and easy to use but the printer was a big disappointment especially for the price. August 26, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Good looking printer... horrible quality and multiple issues. I bought the MakerBot Replicator 5th Generation from Home Depot because of a financing deal on my credit card. This was the worst decision I have ever made. I had read negative reviews about this product and wasn't quite convinced that a company like MakerBot would release something so bad... I should have listened! I went through 3 printers before totally giving up and buying a different brand which was rated higher on Amazon. I purchased that unit from Amazon and will review it as soon as it arrives. Back to the MakerBot... The first unit I brought home made a terrible grinding sound on the z-axis. The camera also arrived disconnected. The camera connection was easy enough to fix, but it just goes to show the terrible QA MakerBot has. The first unit printed great and I was really happy except for the grinding sound. About a week later, the belts started squeaking. While none of these issues impacted the printing, I figured I should get it replaced now before it dies on me later. I returned the first unit and brought the second one home. Again, this one made a really loud grinding sound on the z-axis and at first printed just fine. After 2 days the extruder clogged. After about 4 hours of loading/unloading filament, I got the jam cleared and I was back to printing. The extruder constantly oozed filament and Makerware doesn't allow you to change temps so it led to homing errors and bad calibration. If calibration is off, the extruder will make a terrible clicking/grinding sound since it is trying to extrude filament but it cant. The final straw was that it just quit printing and kept getting homing errors. I was done at this point but the Home Depot guy offered me another one and I decided to give it one more try. The third unit had a manufacturing date of just 2 days ago. I figured if there were issues, MakerBot probably figured them out and this one would be better. Nope! This one was damaged in the box with a huge dent in the rear panel. Figuring this was just a cosmetic issue, I pressed on with the installation. Made it all the way through the install and it was time to print. No dice, I couldn't get past a few layers before it started clicking and left a stringy mess of filament on the build plate. Either the extruder is improperly leveling the build plate or something else is causing the leveling routine to think a 5 degree angled build plate is level. This thing is a joke. It has built-in WiFi but the software can never find the printer. I have to constantly add the printer by IP. I had such high hopes for this printer. It's got such a nice design, it's just made by a company who takes ZERO pride in their product. The smart extruder is anything but smart. It's cool that they tried to make it detect the build plate and the auto-level assist is cool.. but the implementation is just terrible. This thing needed another 6 months of QA to detect all these issues. For nearly $3k I expected so much more. Steer clear of this thing and save some money on either the Replicator 2 or one of the Replicator clones. If you go the clone route, you can hook up a Raspberry Pi with octoprint to get all of the "gen 5" features and then some! That's what I'll be doing. September 19, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst 3D Printer Experience I bought this model and the "smart extruder" jammed on the very first attempt to print. I went through the recommended steps to un-jam the extruder many, many times without success. The design is poor. It doesn't isolate the hot end from the filament drive, so the plastic is too soft at the drive mechanism and the drive just cuts into the filament instead of moving it when warm. I returned it for my money back minus an absurd "restocking fee". All in all, it cost me over $400 to find out what a piece of junk this printer is. January 24, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works as intented. I have this printer at my school and I have made multiple projects with it. It works great. I've had a few issues but nothing I can't fix on my own. I would like to point out that most negative reviews on this product are from older people who may not be good with modern technology.. Thus are having issues with basic troubleshooting. Most of their complaints can be solved with a simple Google search or viewing MakerBot's FAQ or Forums for help. The price is high, but that is because of MakerBot's pricing model. March 11, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Buyer Be Aware... The Makerbot is a very cool toy, but it is also a very expensive one. I would describe it as the "Apple" of 3D printers. Easier to use than some, but ridiculously overpriced in original and subsequent purchases (i.e. both the filament and printer are much more than necessary to make a good profit) If you are looking for a cool toy, you may wish to buy it, but recognize that there are very few uses for it that are more than toys and trinkets. If you make a screwdriver, don't expect it to last through a whole project, and the same for other things. Also, I say "easier than some" and not simply easy for a reason. It still requires a lot of expertise to get it running properly. Be aware of what your getting, and research it before you buy. Also, Makerbot is the one that is overpricing, NOT The Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth every penny! Expensive yes, but worth every penny in my opinion. The Maker bot does exactly what it was designed to do, make lives easier. I've had mine for almost two months now and have saved literally hundreds of dollars by printing things I once had to buy. Makerbot is the future of 3D printing! 5 stars!!! August 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 3D printer The Makerbot is exactly what my family has been waiting for, easy to use and fun for the entire family. We use this thing daily and fait wait for our friends to get one. July 23, 2014
