3D printer pioneer MakerBot is bringing its signature printers to Panama!

The company has entered into a reselling agreement with Anantek Inc., owner of Makerz, Panama’s first 3D printer shop.

The store will sell many of MakerBot’s printers, including its fifth-generation printers and its yet-to-be-released Replicator Z18, as well as accessories for those printers.

“We see 3D printing as leading the next industrial revolution and think that working with MakerBot will help further innovation and making throughout Central America,” said Ariel Yahni, CEO of Anantek Enterprises Inc. in a press release.
