Makerbot Outsourcing Production Of Its 3D Printers

MakerBot Is Done Making Its Own 3D Printers

Ryan Whitwam | April 27, 2016

Just a few years ago, MakerBot was a hot new startup that seemed like it was about ride a wave of consumer interest in 3D printing to the top of the technology world. Things have not exactly gone to plan in that respect. MakerBot has announced that it plans to halt production of its own in-house 3D printers going forward. This isn’t the end, but it’s definitely a recalculation for the company.
There will still be “MakerBot” 3D printers, but the company has contracted with a Florida-based electronics manufacturing company called Jabil to manufacture the hardware.
