    Z18 and MB 5th Gen

    Hi all, new here, found the forum from an app on the play store.

    I own construction engineering company and use 3d modelling, 3d printing and augmented reality to help clients and staff understand what we are trying to build. I work on projects up to £350m and have clients such as local councils and water treatment companies.

    I have a makerbot z18 and a replicator 5th gen to play with.

    Makerbot or Ultimaker thought needed

    Hi All,

    New to the site but not the additive world as I have been working in the commercial space for about 10 years now.

    I would like some opinions on two of the starter systems out there, Makerbot and Ultimaker. I am leading a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) effort for our elementary school and have narrowed my choice of machines to these two (mostly for safety and ease of use).

    My question is do I go with one of these: Replicator...

    Afinia H800 or Makerbot Replicator 5th Gen?


    I am considering adding 3D printing to my classroom/curriculum and I have been considering the Afinia H800 and the Makerbot Replicator 5th Gen.

    While there is an abundance of comparisons between the Replicator 5th gen and other machines, the data is sparse when comparing the Afinia H800 to the Makerbot Replicator 5th Gen.

    Any input related to preference of the Afinia H800 Vs. the Replicator would be greatly appreciated.

    Makerbot Replicator 5th gen

    I'm selling my Makerbot Replicator 5th Gen.

    This printer is amazing!!!
    you can set it up to connect to your wireless network and send stuff to it to print with out you being there. it comes with a camera for you to view its process while printing. I've printed a few things on it. I love this printer, I've out grown this printer.

  • Makerbot Replicator 5th GenFor the most part the new Gen 5 is an amazing machine.

    For the most part the 5th Gen Replicator is an amazing machine. I have found that the standard profiles that Makerbot has on the Desktop soft\ware are actually not all that great, I have reverted to using the custom profile setup and running at settings that fit the products being used for the prints. The Smart Extruder I have found is in my opinion the weakest link in this printer. I have officially gone through 2 that have failed after about 400 hours printing.... All in all i am pleased with...

    replied to Makerbot or Ultimaker thought needed
    The Design Spot at the Sacramento Public Library's Arcade branch has a 5th Gen Makerbot Replicator and I would suggest staying away from any of the units that use their Smart Extruder. They've had it about six months now and gone through three extruders just trying to keep it working. It frequently stops during the print process due to either thinking that the filament is jammed or it believes it is out of filament. I have looked at the insides of the Smart Extruder and think there's too long a...

    Broken nozzle in smart extruder

    Hello guys I'm relatively new to 3d printing having just gotten my makerbot replicator 5th Gen earlier this year. When trying to change the tip on the smart extruder my dad broke it off so it's still in the extruder with the nozzle broken off.

  • Removing support from the model after printing

    We are really really very new in 3d printing and need help. Lots of it.
    We have printed some models from thingiverse and they have come out OK. We printed an Iphone 4s case yesterday, also from thingiverse. We had to add raft and support to the base. The raft part came out quickly, but the support part is still on the model. Is there any way to remove it?
    We are using Makerbot Replicator 5th gen printer, with Sketchup Pro and Makerbot software.

    smart extruder blocked

    Filament does not load in the smart extruder of my makerbot replicator 5th gen printer. It was bought around a month back. We have printed many items on it, and it was printing until yesterday evening. Then, one of the prints didnt stick to the bed, and I removed the filament. When I started to load filament again, it wouldnt go past a little bit. I tried again, cleaned the extruder and tried again. But the filament refuses to go below a certain point.
    Can someone help? Searching...
