In this case, a Makerbot replicator is a 3D printer... They are the same thing just from different companies...

See this link for intro to 3D printing....

Ok, I'm new to all this. I am extremely interested in the technology of all of it, but like an infant coming into the world, I don't know much of anything.

Could someone tell me the difference between a replicator and 3d printer? I thought they were one in the same. :-O
I don't use a replicator so I can't advise much but I do know that once I put my 3d printer in a box to block out drafts, I immediately see much better results against warping and such....

<p>I tried to print the box, but it shrinks and distorts while cooling. I made the GCode with RepG, and printed it with Replicator 1 (120° HBP and 230° for the extruder), cleaning the Kapton with rubbing alcool before.<br>Any suggestion?<br>Thanks in advance</p>

<p>No prob... Done it in sketchup. I've uploaded the source file "vbox.skp"... Edit away!</p>

<p>Very nice! How did you model it? Do you mind sharing the 'source' files, so that we can add names?</p>

<p>Yes, but it's quite minimal....</p>

<p>need support for the bow?</p>
