Eagerly awaiting the arrival of a brand new MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer? Well, here’s a little treat to tide you over! We’ve made four video tutorials that will walk you through everything you’ll need to know about setting up, operating and maintaining your Replicator 2. Setup for the MakerBot Replicator 2 is incredibly easy (even easier than it was for the original Replicator, if you can believe it!) and we’ve worked really hard to get you thorough documentation and instructions (including a top-notch user manual!) so that you’ll always have a hand to hold as you make your way into the wonderful world of owning a MakerBot.
The MakerBot Replicator 2 comes assembled and it takes just a few minutes to get it started up. In the Unboxing video I’ll show you how to carefully unpack and setup your Replicator 2.
TWO: Startup Process
Once you’ve unboxed your MakerBot Replicator 2 you’ll be ready to run through the startup process. In the Startup Process video I’ll show you how to level your build platform and load your MakerBot PLA filament so that your Replicator 2 can make its very first thing!
THREE: MakerBot MakerWare
MakerWare is a brand new software developed here at MakerBot that prepares models for being made on a MakerBot Replicator 2. In the MakerBot MakerWare video I’ll show you how to load a file into the software, move it, scale it, and make it!
FOUR: Maintenance Routine
The MakerBot Replicator 2 is an easy to use machine that requires a simple occasional maintenance routine. In the Maintenance Routine video I’ll show you how to lubricate the threaded rod and clean out the drive gear on your Replicator 2.
