If you have a fifth-generation MakerBot Replicator 3D printer and an iPhone today is your lucky day. MakerBot announced the availability of MakerBot Mobile for the iPhone. The app gives you access to your 3D printing library and Thingiverse via the cloud. In addition to accessing all of your files, the app lets you control all aspects of the printer from the palm of your hand. Now you can start and monitor a 10 hour print job without getting off the couch. The app works with the MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer and Compact 3D Printer. The Z18 3D Printer will also be supported once it is released.
