Thats fine, I don't even think tech knight has been able to get far with my board yet! (Or even received it! lol) (For my portable)

Man, these Prusas are nice so far.  Out of the box I've printed a bunch of stuff flawlessly.  I LOVE the auto-leveling.  It levels the build plate between each print automatically.


The software, however, is cumbersome.  Typical open source stuff.  All you can say about it is that it's ... functional.  Looks like an 8-year-old designed the interface. :/

Are you using cura for the I3? Do you have any interest in letting go of your makerbot?

Eventually I'm going to get an Simplify3D license. I've seen pretty fantastic stuff come off that slicer, all sorts of ways to optimize the build.

Macs: PB160 2GB SCSI2SD w/7.6.1. PB190cs 8GB CF w/8.1&7.6.1. Powerbook G4 5,4 w/1GB ram, dualboot 10.5&MorphOS. Mini G4 1.25GHz w/ MorphOS.
PCs: Too many, running too many things.

I'm using whatever software they have on the Prusa website.  Slic3r and some app I don't remember that actually does the printing.


Yes, we're getting rid of the MakerBot.

Yeah, so use Cura instead it's 10x better, anyhow do you have an early makerbot 2? Maybe I can repair it for you? I've repaired more then a few so far. I just repaired a 2x that was sent to me in pieces buy a dumb seller!

I don't know if it's an early or later Makerbot 2.  I just know that it never worked.  Also, the school had decided to not to spend another dime on it.  So unless you're willing to come to the school and repair it for free, I don't think that's an option. :p


Otherwise we're going to sell it.  There's supposed to be some company that buys used Makerbots, or at least my coworker told me so.  I'm having trouble find it, however.

So I just saw this thread...


I bought an SE last year. It came with 2 floppy drives (1 1.4M drive, 1 800K drive), The 800K drive was toast. It's upper head and ribbon cable were torn off the support arm and I have no clue if it can be fixed.


The SE has the 800K roms so the 1.4M drive was just a 800K drive. There was also a hard disk rigged to the top of the floppy drive cage. Well I was wanting the 1.4M drive to work, so I ordered an SE FDHD logic board and an upper drive sled w/ activity LED. The 1.4M drive went to the bottom floppy cage and the HD was mounted in it's sled.


The only problem was I had no upper floppy faceplate. So I fired up 123D Design and made a faceplate in 2 parts. I printed the faceplate w/LED window hole in white (closest matching color I had). I printed the LED window in clear. (It's really not clear, just a diffused translucence, but that's great for it's purpose.)


I had no reference for how the official one attached. I don't remember if we hot glued it in or taped it, but the STL has tabs that keep the part from popping through the front of the Mac. We just taped or glued the tabs to the inside of the SE.


I've attached the 123D Design files and STL files for both parts.


Related Note: They were printed on my Robo 3D R1+ which works pretty well.
