MakerBot has made good on its promise to roll out an app for Android users and it is downloadable today from the Google Play store.

The app will allow you to control your printing from your smartphone or tablet with one click, setting up a print from a saved model in your library. The app will sync your Android device with the MakerBot Cloud Library where you can access your printing history.

As well as starting the print, you can also pause, cancel or even change the filament of the 3D printer remotely, thanks to this easy-to-use app.

3D printing is something that has only recently become available for the masses as companies such as MakerBot create desktop sized printers that can cost as little as £1,200 and can print a wide range of items using a special plastic-based material.

What would you 3D print if you could? We’re limiting you to an item that is a maximum of 15 x 15 x 15cm.
