Re: Makerbot Replicator Mini. Thank you!

yes. tired of the bluetape pretty fast. works great with the makerbot software which enforces a mandator raft but the improved FINISH of the model sans raft is so much better.

as long as I can get enough prints out of it I don't mind the price.

I have to adjust the z offset to get it to the right height but the problem is larger than that. the bed is not and can not be leveled. my bed happens to tilt slightly forward. such that when I print the first layer I have to use my finger to slightly "lift" the be...
