Build3dprinter. Just another site. Ultra-lab. Ya está: la primera de las 3 nuevas impresoras de Makerbot Industries nos ha llegado.


Desde hace unos días, hemos podido descubrir y probar este nuevo modelo, la Replicator Quinta generación. Más allá de sus características – impresión en PLA, resolución de 100 micras y amplia superficie de impresión -, probar la Replicator Quinta generación es descubrir una serie de nuevas funcionalidades y disfrutar de más usabilidad aún. El usuario que descubrirá directamente este modelo, podrá apreciar su grado de madurez. El usuario que ya tiene o ha visto funcionar un modelo anterior, será particularmente atento a las mejoras de interfaz y de servicios. Unboxing y puesta en marcha La puesta en marcha de la Replicator Quinta generación es muy sencilla. Esos dos últimos puntos son dos novedades: el filamento ahora está integrado en el cuerpo de la impresora, haciéndola más compacta y evitando así que el filamento se enrolle; el extrusor es totalmente amovible y se coloca gracias a un imán.

After two years, I think I have my Replicator (apparently the first one shipped) finally working reliably to produce >1 hour prints.


Thank you @iandanforth for asking if I had a description of the mods I did and prompting me to write this. The Replicator has been a very frustrating product. After a few out-of-the-box failures, it worked great for the first week and then rapidly deteriorated. And a few months later, the Replicator 2 was announced and support for my product rapidly evaporated. Many of the things I print are small and take <15 minutes to print, so I’ve been dealing with a <30% success rate of printing, or using other 3d printers. The heated build platform and thermocouple issues were just bad original parts from Makerbot.

Assuming the basic mechatronics of the printer work, the most critical fix is the new extruder design. The next most critical mod is replacing those stupid plastic cantilever arms with something sturdier. Adventure in the makers community of San Francisco. Ultra-lab. F.A.T.
