Everyone’s buzzing about Brooklyn-based MakerBot‘s Replicator2 3D desktop printers.

Time Magazine called it one of the Best Inventions of 2012. Popular Mechanics named it “Best Overall” among new 3D printers. Longtime Philly tech scene man-about-town and Philly Startup Leaders cofounder Chris Cera simply calls it “one of the most epic products of the year.”

Cera would know (and, okay, he’d also be a bit biased) because his local consulting firm Arcweb helped get the product to market.

A team of roughly three Arcweb staffers integrated Makerbot’s Replicator2 software with seven different operating systems under a tight deadline, Cera said. The Replicator2 launched in September and made the cover of Wired’s October issue with the headline: The New Makerbot Replicator Might Just Change Your World. The 3D printer is being touted for its ease-of-use and affordability.

“This is Makerbot’s Macintosh moment,” Wired wrote.

Arcweb is based out of Indy Hall and launched this past spring. For those who follow the Philly scene closely might remember that Philly maker Far McKon, once a leader of both the Hacktory and Hive 76, now works with Makerbot, which helped make the connection.
