About MakerBot Replicator 5th Gen

From MakerBot:
MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer (5th Generation).  The Easiest, Most Versatile Way to Go from 3D Model to 3D Print

The MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer combines a substantial build volume with ease-of-use and connectivity features so you can go from 3D model to 3D print quickly and easily. Optimized for MakerBot PLA filament, the Replicator Desktop 3D Printer can create professional-quality, high-resolution prototypes and complex models for the classroom, business, or anywhere maker's make.

Minimize downtime and continue printing with the easy-to-use, swappable Smart Extruder. You can also upgrade to the Smart Extruder+. Three connectivity options —USB, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet— allow for a seamless workflow. Cloud and app-enabled, the MakerBot Replicator connects to MakerBot's software and wider resources to provide you with a refined, streamlined 3D printing experience so you can focus on making things better.
