The IDE HBP System is compatible with every MakerBot Replicator 2 and Replicator 2X. You have to do no modifications on your device.
What are the benefits?
If you have a Replicator 2, the IDE heated build plate system offers you the option to use all the 3D printing materials that are available, you are no longer limited to PLA.
Even if you still want to use PLA only, the heated build plate makes it possible to print very large parts, with no warping and an absolute flat and smooth bottom surface.
You can print directly onto the glass surface. So you need no tapes (saves you money and work) anymore and also get an absolute smooth bottom surface on your objects and can remove the parts from the plate after cooling down with ease.
Our IDE heated build plate system has an absolute flat surface, so you have a perfect first layer even on large parts and less print failures.
More comfort cause of the removable (magnetic) glass plate. No more constantly leveling the build plate - you can remove and replace the glass plate and print without leveling.
Who will like to use it?
We have professional users like Bosch,Volkswagen, Airbus and many other huge companies, as well as universities, schools, small businesses and private users. So in fact everyone with a MakerBot Replicator 2 or 2X will love the improvements that our upgrade brings. You will see quality improvements as well as more comfort and less maintenance.
Is it complicated to install?
Not at all! The installation is really as easy as playing lego, we ship it with a detailed, pictured assembly guide and really everyone can install it in just a few minutes. Its all "plug and print" (also see the video further down).
What is part of the offer?
- Completely preassembled build plate with integrated heater and temperature sensor. With wires and terminals. You really just have to plug it into the connectors that your Replicator has from stock.
- With detailed assembly guide.
- With 1 glass plate - if you need more than one, you can order it separately.
Time needed for the upgrade:
about 10 minutes, can be made by everyone without special skills.
The set can be built out and downgraded to the original factory condition without problems. There is no manipulation on the original parts needed.
The upgrade built plate is compatible to the original Replicator 2 & 2X Z-axis as well as (for sure) with our aluminium Z-axis upgrade.
