Fisher Unitech Now Offering Makerbot 3D Printers

Desktop 3D Printer Line A Gateway Between Hobby and Professional 3D Printing

Troy, MI July 20, 2015


Fisher Unitech, LLC, a leading reseller of 3D printing and engineering software and services, recently announced its expansion into the hobbyist 3D printing market with the addition of Makerbot to its product portfolio. Fisher Unitech has been one of the top Stratasys professional 3D printing resellers in the world for over 18 years, and the addition of Makerbot greatly expands the types of individuals they are able to assist.

"We are excited to start offering MakerBot printers," said Nick Licari, 3D Printing Services Manager at Fisher Unitech. "The addition of the MakerBot line really completes the range of 3D printing products we can provide and opens up an avenue for us to help those looking to break into 3D printing without breaking the bank."

MakerBot 3D printers are desktop accessible printers that utilize Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) technology to extrude plastic that builds layers upon layers of material until a part is complete. The MakerBot printer line provides excellent portability and is easy to use. For those reasons, these printers have been widely adopted in smaller office settings, in the classroom, and in consumers' homes. Fisher Unitech will be offering the MakerBot 3D printers themselves as well as the PLA filament that they utilize.

The Makerbots being offered can be found on Fisher Unitech's website at http://www.funtech.com/e-Store/MakerBot.
