Product Description


M2 means Quality

If you have ever heard someone say, “They don’t make ‘em like they used to,” they probably weren’t talking about the M2.

We know that high precision print quality, especially over time, can’t exist without high-quality components. When you combine these components with our made in the USA quality, it's easy to see why we are regarded as the top-choice for industrial level precision at an affordable price. Additionally, we have made this durable machine completely modular, so that maintenance is a breeze — this means less time troubleshooting, more time innovating.

With our outstanding customer support and amazingly consistent reviews, you can be confident that you'll be delighted with your M2 and its performance.

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. 

Reliabilty: 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.
