Filament used is www.fused3d.com 1.75mm Wood Filament.

GROUP GLASS PLATE BUY: Checkout https://groups.google.com/forum/#!searchin/makerbot/glass$20buy/makerbot/Qafyj9lHzas/0ffH9-yFRzAJ or search Makerbot Google Group for "Group Buy - Replicator2 Glass with Notches and Perfect Fit"

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.

Your print may help me. I wanted to experiment using a thin layer over the entire bed and you have done it. My question stems from having a warped bed. Did the layer fill in the gaps to make the top of the layer perfectly flat?

I see bumps by observing the picture but can they be cleaned up/sanded flat?



Seriously? I guess this is for when you don't have a test dial indicator and want to spend more on filament than you would on a gauge?

More of a competition against 3d printers and filaments than a leveler

Entertaining I guess at $45USD for 250 grams of material! I think I'll have to take a pass on this one.

It only uses 9g of material at .2mm.

he does sell the stuff .. :\
