Rediscover a lost classic - MakerBot a Mixtape!

The MakerBot Mixtape Kit gives you the power to create the ultimate gift. We ship you the electronics, you print the STLs on this page in any of our terrific filament colors and snap the whole thing together!

This project is designed to work with the MakerBot Mixtape Kit, available on our store. http://store.makerbot.com/makerbot-mixtape-kit.html

Don't have a MakerBot yet? Get your hands on a fully assembled MakerBot Mixtape at the link below.


Designed by John B., Matt K. and John D. A collaborative project with Playbutton www.playbutton.com


Print each STL once and then follow our assembly instructions:


For best results, print STL files with the following settings:

Infill = 10
Layer Height = .3
Shells = 2

Front Plate:
Infill = 0
Layer Height = .25
Shells = 0

Back Plate:
Infill = 0
Layer Height = .25
Shells = 0

Infill = 10
Layer Height = .27
Shells = 1

i love this project and the design

I need the files for the new mixtape. The thicker in-store only version.

Awesome, but now that you no longer sell the electronics for it can we buy them somewhere else??

You can buy a standard Playbutton from http://playbutton.complaybutton.com and use its electronics for your Mixtape, see mine @ http://www.thingiverse.com/make:46703http://www.thingiverse.com/mak...

i Just recently made one for my wife, but used a flash drive to hold the music. Didn't really need another MP3 player; she uses her phone. So it was more symbolic and a nice place to hold the library of songs.

Love this project. Printed perfectly in PLA. No warping on front and back panels an they snapped right into place.

Update--cranking up the heat of the HBP to 110 did the trick. Worked perfectly!

(I did get the body to print flawlessly twice, and then, a week later, nope!) Any suggestions?

Is anyone else having trouble getting the body to print in full without detaching from the build platform? I get 50-75% done using my Thing-o-Matic (with HBP) and the print head essentially dislodges it by knocking it a bit each time, until the raft comes off the platform. :-[

I would love to see some schematics for the mp3 player circuit. I'm sure the guys on here would have wifi and assorts designed into it within days xD

This one of the coolest, most creative, and thoughtful kits so far. Thanks Makerbot design guys.

Nice project, I smell derivatives!!

Soon we will be releasing the negitive file and the openscad to boolean subtract anything on thingiverse.

Get ready.

"Makerbot" and the tape spools should have a dualstrusion option to emblacken them. Or I suppose you could paint them by hand. (How quaint!) :)

We have that information...

Stay tuned. We will release that shorty.
