Stratasys Asia Pacific, a subsidiary of Stratasys Ltd announced today via PR Newswire that MakerBot has sold 100,000 3d printers worldwide.
MakerBot is undoubtedly one of the pioneers in 3D printing not just in the US but worldwide. This milestone reached is just one of the many milestones MakerBot has reached in less than a decade. MakerBot has made 3D printing accessible to the consumers, MakerBot 3D printers easy to use and has influenced the way STEM education is conducted as well as how business innovate, come up with new ideas and bring them to life. Last but certainly not least, MakerBot had also created the first online platform where ideas are shared openly in Thingiverse.
“Being the first company to have sold 100,000 3D printers is a major milestone for MakerBot and the entire industry,” said Jonathan Jaglom, CEO at MakerBot. “MakerBot has made 3D printing more accessible and today is empowering businesses and educators to redefine what’s possible. What was once a product used only by makers and hobbyists has matured significantly and become an indispensible tool that is changing the way students learn and businesses innovate.”
In Asia, MakerBot is easily one of the most recognised brand name in 3D printing. At Image Transforms, we are proud to be part of this recognition by delivering MakerBot to our customers’ doorstep in Singapore plus other countries in ASEAN and we are happy to be part of this upward trend where 3D printing is now being incorporated into school curriculum in Asia as well as in extra-curricular training workshops. This, coupled with the growing trend of Maker’s community in Asia can only mean that the popularity of 3D printing will rise even further.
