MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D printer

by Philswift1950

I have a MakerBot Replicator 2 and am very happy with it and its performance. I'm thinking of moving to a MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D printer so as I can use the dual extruders. However the reports for this printer are less than good. Does anyone have one and if so, what is their recommendation? Thanks

Does anyone know what could be the problem? I am using Sketch up make.

Many thanks

Printing with wood filament

by Jacutus

I would like to print with wood filament. Does this sound like a bad idea to anyone? Do you think the wood would be abrasive or otherwise damage the extruder?
