ABOUT THE MAKERBOT REPLICATOR+
HOW THE MAKERBOT REPLICATOR+ WORKS
The MakerBot Replicator+ makes solid, three-dimensional objects out of melted MakerBot
PLA Filament. First, use MakerBot Print to translate 3D design files into instructions for the
MakerBot Replicator+. Then, transfer those instructions to the MakerBot Replicator+ via your local
network, USB drive, or USB cable.
The MakerBot Replicator+ will melt MakerBot PLA Filament and squeeze it out onto the build plate in
thin lines to build your object layer by layer. The build chamber allows the extruded PLA to cool slowly,
minimizing warping and curling. This method of 3D printing is called fused deposition modeling (FDM).

BEGINNING A PRINT WITH THE MAKERBOT REPLICATOR+
There are three ways in which you can begin your printing an object. You can use the MakerBot Mobile App,
the control panel on the MakerBot Replicator+, and MakerBot Print.
When you are ready to print your model, click Print in MakerBot Print to slice the model using the current
settings and send a .makerbot print file to your MakerBot Replicator+. You will be reminded to clear the
build plate and asked to initiate the print on the control panel. You can also select Begin Printing on the
control panel after starting the file transfer or tap Print on the MakerBot Mobile App.
If MakerBot Print is connected to your MakerBot Replicator+, the print file will be sent directly to your 3D
printer. If MakerBot Print is not connected to your MakerBot Replicator+, this button will open a dialog allowing
you to export and save a .makerbot print file. You can transfer the print file to your MakerBot Replicator+ using
a USB drive. Click Show Print Preview in MakerBot Print to open a preview of the sliced model.
If you so choose, you can have your object printed on a raft. The raft acts as a base for your object and
any support structures and ensures that everything adheres well to the build plate. The raft will be easily
removable once you detach your finished object from the build plate.
HOW TO PAUSE OR CANCEL A PRINT
To pause a print, push the menu button on the MakerBot Replicator+ and select Pause with the dial. You can
also select the printer in MakerBot Print and select Pause.
To cancel a print, push the menu button on the MakerBot Replicator+ and select Cancel with the dial. You can
also select the printer in MakerBot Print and select Cancel.
TO ADD AN OFFLINE PRINTER
1. Open the printer panel and click Add a printer.
2. Select Add an Unconnected Printer and then click on MakerBot.
3. Select a printer, and the build plate will update to the appropriate size.
AFTER YOU PRINT
REMOVING THE PRINT FROM THE BUILD PLATE
When your print finishes, remove the flexible build plate from the MakerBot Replicator+. Remove the
print from the build plate by simply bending the flexible build plate. The print will peel off the smooth grip
surface. Peel the raft off of the bottom of the print, if you printed the object with a raft. When you have
removed the print from the build plate, make sure to clean the build plate of any debris before reloading
the build plate into the MakerBot Replicator+.
Note: When you bend the flexible build plate, some pieces of the raft may remain on the plate. Simply bend
the flex build plate again or use a flat, non-sharp tool to remove the raft pieces. Never use a knife to remove
pieces of the raft. You can damage the build plate.

Chapter 6
Maintenance
As soon as you take your MakerBot® Replicator®+ Desktop 3D
Printer out of the box, it is ready to print high-quality models.
However, like any precision machine, routine maintenance
is needed. Here are some ways you can keep your MakerBot
Replicator+ printing smoothly and guarantee a great print
every time.
WELCOME, LET’S GET STARTED
34
Z-AXIS HOMING CALIBRATION
Each time you attach a new Smart Extruder+, you will need to run the Z-Axis Homing Calibration routine.
This process will make sure the build plate is positioned at the correct distance from the Smart Extruder+
when you begin a print. Before attempting to run Z-axis homing, allow the Smart Extruder+ to cool. Once
cooled, unload any filament and clear any debris from the extruder nozzle and build plate. Navigate to
Settings > Calibration > Calibrate Z-Axis Offset on the Control Panel to begin Z-axis homing calibration.
The MakerBot Replicator+ will then check and record the location of the build plate.
LEVEL THE BUILD PLATE
Before beginning the leveling process, please consult MakerBot Support at https://support.makerbot.com.
The build plate is the base on which your prints will form and is leveled at the MakerBot factory, but over
time it might shift slightly. If you’re having trouble with print adhesion, you may need to level the plate
again.
Navigate to Settings > Calibration > Level Build Plate > Start Assisted Leveling on the Control Panel to
begin leveling the build plate. If filament is loaded, you will be prompted to unload filament.
Before attempting to level your build plate, allow the Smart Extruder+ to cool and clear any debris from the
extruder nozzle and build plate.
When directed with the control panel, using the 4 mm hex key included in the setup kit, first tighten the
front left and right screws 2-3 full turns. Select Continue with the dial.
Next, turn the leveling screws slowly until a light appears on the extruder. Press the control panel dial to
move to the next step of the leveling process. The extruder will move to different points around the build
plate to make sure the plate is at the appropriate distance from the Smart Extruder+ nozzle. Turn the
leveling screws according to the instructions that appear on the control panel screen. Instructions on the
MakerBot Replicator+ control panel will also guide you through this process.
MAINTAINING THE BUILD PLATE
The surface of the MakerBot Replicator+ build plate, known as the Grip Surface, allows for better print
adhesion and quality than using a surface like blue tape. However, over time, the grip surface can become
cracked and damaged. If these cracks or tears begin to affect print quality, it is time to replace the grip
surface.
Go to https://store.makerbot.com/ to order more Grip Surfaces.

Troubleshooting
As you get to know your MakerBot® Replicator®+ Desktop
3D Printer, you may run into issues with different parts of the
printing process. Here is a handy guide to some simple-to-fix
problems. For help with issues not covered in this chapter, go to

PRINTING PROBLEMS/CONNECTIVITY PROBLEMS
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
Can’t load filament into the Smart
Extruder+.
Try unloading and loading again. Hold the Smart Extruder+ in
place and try pushing the filament through. As long as you are
holding the Smart Extruder+ in place, pushing on the filament
will not damage it. Be sure to insert the filament and not the
filament guide tube into the Smart Extruder+. Also, make sure
the filament end has a clean edge before inserting it into the
Smart Extruder+. A clean edge will allow for easier insertion.
Can’t remove filament from the
Smart Extruder+.
Try running the filament load script and allowing the plastic to
extrude for a few seconds. Then try unloading again.
Filament won’t extrude from the
Smart Extruder+.
Try unloading and reloading the filament.
Printed object is stuck to the
build plate.
If the object is still stuck, take a thin metal craft spatula and
carefully work the blade under the object. When the blade is
most of the way under the object, twist the handle slightly.
The object should come free. Never use a knife or sharp tool
to remove pieces of the object or pieces of the raft. You can
damage the build plate and also injure yourself.
Object peels off the build plate
during printing.
Recalibrate your Z Offset by selecting Settings > Calibration
> Calibrate Z Offset on your printer’s display. It’s possible the
starting distance between your build plate and extruder is too
large, which can result in poor adhesion. If any one part of your
object does not adhere well to the build plate, the whole object
may peel off the plate.
If objects continue to peel during printing, you may need to
manually adjust your Z Offset. This can be adjusted in MakerBot Print or MakerBot Mobile. Your printer’s build plate is
factory leveled, so you typically will not need to relevel your
build plate. Leveling should only be done after adjusting your
Z Offset and only if an object is curling towards one side of the
build plate.
TROUBLESHOOTING
37
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
Screen does not respond to
touch.
The control panel screen on the MakerBot Replicator+ is not
a touchscreen. Turn the dial to scroll through the available
options on the screen. Press the dial to select.
The plate leveling routine does
not result in a level build plate.
The assisted leveling routine depends on a clean, flat plate and a
clean extruder nozzle. Plastic debris on the build plate or nozzle
can interfere with the extruder sensor.
Filament breaks between the
spool and the Smart Extruder+.
Open the filament drawer and ensure that the filament unwinds
counterclockwise. Check that the filament guide tube is not
twisted or bent. Make sure to unload the filament left in the Smart
Extruder+ before reloading.
The Smart Extruder+ is installed,
but the MakerBot Replicator+
does not recognize it.
Remove the Smart Extruder+ and run the extruder attachment
script by going to Extruder > Attach Smart Extruder Now.
Print files don’t appear in USB
storage.
Make sure that your print files are in the appropriate format. Print
files for the MakerBot Replicator+ must have a .makerbot file
extension. Also, make sure that the USB drive is formatted to
FAT32. USB drives that are formatted to NTFS will not be visible.
