MakerBot Sketch Large

The exciting, reliable 3D printer that helps schools improve their STEM teaching has received a giant upgrade. The MakerBot Sketch Large has a bigger build volume than its predecessor, the Sketch. At 220 x 200 x 250mm, it is large enough to fit ten typical student projects on one build plate, making it easier and quicker for students to see the results of their hard work. MakerBot has been helping educators teach modern engineering techniques for ten years, and the printer comes with a wealth of training and lesson plans that draws on this experience. The machine is reliable, easy to use and safe to install in a classroom – everything you need to bring students’ imagination to life.

Key features

  • Fully enclosed: Designed to be placed anywhere in a classroom, with a particulate filter installed to remove any unpleasant odours generated when printing.
  • Heated build plate: The flexible build plate makes it super-easy to remove finished prints, plus it is heated to improve the quality of the parts.
  • Simple to operate: Control the machine easily through its touchscreen, and monitor print jobs via the integrated 2-megapixel camera.
  • ITSE-certified training: Get access to over 600 3D printing lesson plans that will provide plenty of ideas to help bring the subject alive and excite your students. The training has been certified by internationally recognised educator organisation ITSE.

Large and reliable

With three large spools of PLA material shipping with each printer, you won’t find your students running out of material in the middle of a term. To reduce any bottlenecks, you can double your printing capacity by opting for a cost-effective two machine bundle that ships with six spools of PLA material.
