Hello all, Just as the subject says, my rafts are automatically connecting and it's driving me nuts!   Makerbot print updated itself not too long ago and it seems to be automatically connecting rafts when I don't want them to. I used to be able to separate my parts to assist with lifting issues. Instead, the software is making some strange connections as you can see in the picture.   
I must get asked this 10-15 times a month now that these printers are getting old enough that their keypads are wearing out.  The problem with the keypads is that Makerbot used a really cheap method of manufacturing that coats/paints on the black conductive spot on the back of the keypad buttons, and they wear out from use pretty quickly.  So i wanted to show how i fix these all the time.

I’ve been using MakerBot products for several years, and this is the first time I’ve ever ran into a model that won’t go through Makerware. It’s a car model I got off Thingiverse. Long story short, it I cut it in half to print larger and then join the halves after printing. The model is clean and no holes, flat surfaces down and after 45 minutes the preview of it is empty. Here’s how it looks.
Attempting to print the x3g made from the stl linked below on a replicator 2
Hi all,   I'm trying to print a case (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:978335) on a Makerbot Replicator 2, but the printer just prints the first layer and then seems to fail for some reason.  I ran the .stl's through the newest version of Makerbot Print, with Support and Bridge Support enabled.  I then printed the .x3g via SD Card on the printer.  
I have a Makerbot Replicator 1 Dual that has never worked that great and I have spent the last 6 years messing with it.  My print seems to fail around the 30 minute mark and the drive gear just spins on the filament leaving a notch so it no longer moves.  I've used new nosles and upgraded to the spring loaded drive block.  https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:53125  I recently noticed that while clea
I've been asked by a local elementary school to have a look at their Replicator 2.  It seems that when powered, the up/down/left/right buttons don't function. I've tried cleaning the contacts and as well as shorting them with a paperclip, but only the "M" will operate.  This makes doing routine functions difficult.  
Hi, I am very new to 3D printing and I'm on an incredibly steep learning curve.  The problem: Using MakerBot Replicator 2X. Been doing fine until I changed spools. First school boy error is i didn't know there was different spools. I swapped from ABS to PLA (didn't change settings) caused loads of issues including clogging the heads.   
I own a Makerbot Replicator Plus and when printing large flat parts or even flat parts the warping is atrocious near the edges, some of my prints have warped almost an inch off of the plate. I've tried pretty much everything, table on the build plate, adhesives on the plate, etc. Nothing is working and as far as I know the Replicator Plus does not have a heated plate yet. Any ideas?
