If you own one of the fifth generation MakerBot Replicator 3D printers, here is a good news. MakerBot just announced the availability of MakerBot Mobile, a mobile app that gives you the power to monitor and control a MakerBot Replicator 3D Printer from a mobile phone.

The free MakerBot Mobile app uses the power of cloud computing to access your personal 3D printing library and Thingiverse, and to print files on Fifth Generation MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers, which include the Replicator Desktop 3D Printer, the Replicator Mini Compact 3D Printer and the soon to be released Replicator Z18 3D Printer.

All the user has to do is confirm the print to start 3D printing. Once the print starts, the user can monitor the 3D printing process via the on-board camera and easily access features such as pause and cancel.

With MakerBot Mobile, users can also add models to collections on Thingiverse or upload and easily share images of 3D prints on social networks. MakerBot Mobile will also let you know when someone else downloads, 3D prints and then posts an "I Made One" photo of one of your designs. Additional features, such as notifications for print completion and filament attention, as well as full remote monitoring on 3G and 4G mobile networks, are coming soon to MakerBot Mobile.

The company believes MakerBot Mobile will enhance convenience and ease throughout the entire 3D printing workflow. To download MakerBot Mobile, visit the app store on iTunes.
