MakerBot2 Weekend Of Tinkering

The Makerbot 2 is widely acknowledged by the developer community to have a faulty design in key component.

I ordered a print of one from the guy who designed a replacement. I could have printed it and assembled it myself but paid for it as a form or reward/encouragement.

Then I put it in a box for 5 months.

If I ever got into the situation where I could no longer print because the original faulty part had failed, I could fit it and carry on.

This weekend, that happened šŸ™‚

Then I downloaded the latest revision of the fix and printed that šŸ™‚
