Now, after all that you're probably thinking "Wait..he gave it 5 stars?"
Sure did...I own a machine shop with large CNC equipment...Read more ›
That said, my purchase of the Makerbot Replicator 2 was an impulse buy. I just got a wild hair up mabutt and clicked the “Add to Cart”, then removed it, then added it back several times during the day. Once Amazon’s site displayed the message, “Order in the next 6 seconds and get it by Friday 14 March 2014”, I went ahead and purchased it because at that point, it was less a desire for a 3D Printer and more of a battle to see if I could add it to my cart and check out in 6 seconds. (I succeeded, BTW. Curse you Jeff Bezos for making it so easy!)
Fast forward to Friday the 14th of March when it arrived.
The unit arrived in a well-packed cardboard box. The first thing one sees when opening the box is the Owner’s manual. It sits in a recessed cut-out in a large cardboard piece that sits on top of everything else in the box. Removing that cardboard “layer” exposes the 3D Printer itself. There was plenty of protection for the unit, and its internal parts (the rods and belts and gears) were secured via plastic, snap-on bars and several large, thick zip ties.
Assembly & Setup:
Since the first thing you see when opening the box is the owner’s manual I got the distinct impression the manufacturer wanted me to actually read it prior to assembly and setup. How dare they insult my geekiness! (I did follow the instructions because breaking a $2500 printer trumps gaining a few geek points) Assembly of the unit was painless and straightforward.Read more ›
Very excited to be the first "kid" on the block with a 3D printer.
Unboxing and setting it up felt like Christmas had come early. I even bought the glass build plate - to avoid the reported issues with the acrylic plate being out of true.
Printed out the Nut and Bolt test printable from the SD card. Worked great.
Printed the stretchy bracelet - again worked great.
Tried to print the little dinosaur and was good - right up until it got to the head and it looked like the poor little guy had an afro with severe bed head. Or was shot in the head. Take your pick.
Printing got progressively worse from there. Several "air prints", multiple mid print failures, etc.
after each failure I checked the build plate for level - it was. I unloaded and reloaded filament multiple times.
Eventually the extruder would not load the filament at all.
It was completely occluded.
I went online to Makerbot support and found that I had contact support for that issue with this replicator unit.
Opened a support ticket on Nov 30 (Saturday). Did not get a response until Dec 5th (Thursday) . Granted there was a weekend in there but still I would expect something sooner than that for the amount of money laid out for this device. I also called and left voice mails on the support phone line asking for some kind of follow up. Twice. I finally got a response after sending a message via their facebook page.
So I did some more basic trouble shooting under the guidance of support and turned out I need to have the bar assembly replaced. Makerbot support shipped me a replacement assembly which I received on Dec 7th.
This is the process to replace: [...]
This is not something that everyone would want to do.Read more ›
