MakerBot Z18 3D Printer


The Makerbot Replicator Z18 is Makerbot’s largest-ever 3D printer. It has a huge 30.5 x 30.5 x 45.7 cm build volume, which is where the name comes from (18-inches on the Z-axis).

The size of this printer means that you can realise your biggest 3D printing dreams.

This 3D printer isn’t just about big prints, though. It’s also about accurate and detailed prints. It has a 100 micron (0.1mm) layer resolution with an 11 micron and 2.5 micron positioning precision on the XY and Z axes respectively. This ensures that prints are brought to life with the utmost precision with rapid prototyping and modelmaking guaranteed.

All in all, the Z18 one of the most accurate fused deposition printers on the market.

It’s also incredibly easy to use with Smart Extruder which pauses printing if it runs out of filament. The Z18 has Makerbot’s fifth-generation technology and it’s powered by the new Makerbot Replicator 3D Printing Platform which is app and cloud enabled – this ensures that you can make full use of the Z18’s on board camera and monitor your prints remotely in real-time.

You can even print via WiFi.


Easy to swap or replace.
Detects filament absence and automatically pauses your print.
Sends notifications to MakerBot Desktop and MakerBot Mobile apps.
