Im just guessing, but the flexible stuff is usually grippier. Like rubber. And they are feet... Thats probably why.

Not at all, I made some out of PET and PLA and they worked fine, On a side note, I printed them upside-down so that the unfinished side is inward...Im just guessing, but the flexible stuff is usually grippier. Like rubber. And they are feet... Thats probably why.
Yeah that's a good idea but you'll have to figure out first what type of plastic apple used back in the day.get them to print ALL the bezels for any towers you ve got!
Oh, just read that. Nice! We have about the same. Mines an 8x8x8. And an I3.I have a 8x8x6 i3 and a 8x10x8 i3. I'm thinking of ordering the FT-5: https://folgertech.com/products/folger-tech-ft-5-large-scale-3d-printer-kit
Ours used to do that. Ended up buying a new extruder nozzel. We've also replaced the heating element, the heating block, the build plate, the arms, and the data cable (twice.) Most of the plastic parts were replaced with machined aluminum because it would shake itself apart when trying to print. Now it doesn't shake itself apart, but we can't get the first layer of filament to lay down and stick to the build plate. We've tried the original build plate, we've tried a glass build plate, with and without the tape, we've tried using sprayon stuff that's supposed to work. We've had several people calibrate it, and it just won't lay down that first layer correctly.I've had a poor experience with a Makerbot Replicator 2. That thing loved to just randomly quit laying filament and instead wrap it around the extruder. Even had Makerbot people out to check it out and couldn't figure out why. I'd imagine the newer machines are better being as they're still in business however.
