MakerBot Print version 2.7 exposes more advanced slicer settings (35+ more settings!) to help you tune prints for different materials and draft printing. To expose these settings make sure you are connected to a printer that has an Experimental Extruder attached and that you have that printer selected. Experimental settings are tagged with an Experimental Extruder icon. Learn more about how to expose these settings: https://support.makerbot.com/learn/makerbot-labs/experimental-extruder/exposing-custom-settings_13660.

This version of MakerBot Print also adds the ability to create custom print modes. To create a custom print mode select a default print mode, name your print mode and press the + button. Make any changes you would like and click "Save Print mode". Custom print modes can be exported and imported for easy sharing within the MakerBot Labs community. If a custom print mode contains Experimental Extruder settings it will also be badged with an Experimental Extruder Icon (screenshot attached).

Cleaning the Rep+ Experimental Extruder

by CarmelCougars

MakerBot &/or Lab Community:
Is there a specific tool/kit recommended to clean the Experimental Rep+ MakerBot extruder? If so, can you provide details? (make, model, size, order-link)
Thanks.

Sudden problems with bronzeFill

by meier_werner

After making some successful prints with colorFabb bronze Fill (MakerBot Replicator mini+, experimental extruder, 0,6mm stainless steel nozzle, colorFabb bronzeFill profile from here) I encountered a huge problem just during a print.
Suddenly the "flow" of filament was very slow and and was kind of stalling. The remaining part of the print then was very fragile, like straw.
I found that the nozzle was congested. After cleaning it I had no problems printing woodfill or normal PLA. But when I tried to print with bronzeFill after a minute the nozzle was congested again and printing stopped.
Any idea what the reason could be? The first prints with bronzefill went flawlessly. I didn't change any settings. But after the "straw-incident" it is not possible to print with bronzeFill. I have no clue. Thanks in advance. (see Pictures of the print)
