MakerBot Cupcake Heated Build Platform v2.0


The MakerBot Cupcake Heated Build Platform v2.0 is the most revolutionary innovation in the recent history of open source 3D printing.

No longer will your prints be thwarted by the evil incarnation of plastic physics: CURLING! Curling happens when layer upon layer of plastic cools down on top of each other and shrinks a small percent. This shrinkage builds up layer after layer and the edges of the printed object start to curl up!  The heated build platform greatly reduces curling by keeping the temperature of the base of the object at a steady 110C.

Full instructions are on the MakerBot wiki.  We’re open source and we believe in keeping designs open so you can hack on them! Check out the designs on Thingiverse. We are also going to try something new with this project. We’re going to use our forums for community discussion on this project. Here’s the forum for this project.

Big thanks to Jordan Miller for his early support and research into heated build platforms. Thanks also to Nophead for his pioneering research into heated platforms and his work identifying appropriate materials to for printing on.

Special price of $42 until 3/29 when the price goes up to $50!

NOTE: We have started putting kits together now and will be able to ship them next week (The week of March 29). If you order more than the heated build platform, your shipment will be shipped when kit assembly is complete next week!
