I will post a Q&A I did with a potential customer hopefully answering most of your questions:
• How many hours has it printed for?
I have replaced the firmware a couple of times so it has been overwritten in EEPROM but I would say around 300hrs
• I’m assuming you have the mk8 nozzles on there, yes?
• Why did you upgrade the nozzles?
Didn’t upgrade the nozzles, upgraded the extruder to a delrin plunger which allows you to print with PLA, ABS, Ninjaflex,….pretty much any filament you want
• Can you tell me more about the platform upgrade?
Platform upgrade is a removable glass plate from here: http://www.bctechnologicalsolutions.com/HBP/index.html Allows for a much flatter service
• Why did you purchase it?
Bought the printer to experiment with 3D printing
• Why are you selling it?
Selling it to purchase a higher end machine that is much more expensive
• Can I see some pics or videos of your actual machine?
See attached along with these videos that were taken before any upgrades were made to the machine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IEVdk3m65bs&list=PLtgzt–DMkS1EF9Hsdr12bk35Sh5dWhP5&index=1
• Did you purchase this direct from makerbot or second hand from a person?
I purchased it from a friend who had it for only a week but realized it wouldn’t meet his needs
• How much are you asking for for this?
I am asking for $1900 because it is only about 4 months old and has a decent amount of upgrades and is fully calibrated. Along with the extruder and build plate upgrade I have added a nozzle fan which cools the filament that is being extruded. This is necessary for printing in PLA or very small objects. Price is negiotiable
