Makerbot's Replicator 2 Printer.
Replaced Standard Acrylic Bed with a Custom Glass Plate (Flatter, and available soon on www.fused3d.com)
Used Scotchblue 2090 Tape (6" soon to come in rolls and squares on www.fused3d.com)
I just typed in cube([260,140,.2]); into openscad and exported as stl.
Opened in ReplicatorG and used whpthomas RepG profile at 200micron.
So a competition to see how flat your plate really is, and how large your build area can get.
If you go into openscad and type in cube([X,Y,Z]); and replace X,Y,Z with your largest size you would want to print (in mm), then export as stl. If you want to get a usable piece from this, I recommend making the Z a little larger than .2mm.
I tried the acrylic plate that the replicator 2 came with, but there was no way I was getting it to work with such a large piece. It was fine making smaller prints in the middle of the bed, but something like this was not going to work.
Now with this Glass Plate, I didn't fiddle during the print.
I printed out a smaller version and fiddled with the level until it worked.
Then I printed out the largest version I could.
So Have at it Folks! Make sure to Post on Thingiverse under the I Made Section.
