    • The M2 was originally released in 2012. MakerGear has continued to improve it based on real-world feedback and is now shipping the M2 Rev. E. (M2e), the fifth generation of the M2 series.

      The M2 Revision E includes a number of improvements including the new, easy to adjust yet more rigid, four point leveling system, metal components that replaced printed parts, Quick Start software, Tutorial video and updated User Guide. Open the box, follow the instructions and beautiful prints will soon follow.

      Reliability: With its steel frame and CNC machined cast aluminum construction, the M2 is engineered and manufactured to provide industrial level precision with a small footprint. The new four-point print bed is easy to level, stays level, and removes the need for z-compensation (aka “auto-leveling”). Whether you are a professional or a weekend hobbyist, the M2 is built to run and built to last.

      Freedom: While MakerGear filament is recommended, you are free to use the filament of your choice. The M2 also uses open-source electronics and firmware. The M2 provides the versatility and flexibility you need to accomplish your project your way.

      Ready to Use: Every M2 is tested at the MakerGear factory in Beachwood, Ohio and is ready to use out of the box. The Quick Start software, step-by-step user guide, and tutorial video will take you from unboxing through your first prints.

      The Real Deal: With it’s ease of use, reliability, excellent prints, high-quality construction and components, and MakerGear’s prompt in-house support from M2 experts, you really do get it all with the MakerGear M2.
