My printer is now totally useless. Neither the left or right will print. Chances are it's the Delrin plunger which Makerbot says is designed to wear out. Thing is I haven't had my Makerbot that long. I mean, I know I'm using the heck out of it, but I figured I'd get at least a year out of it before I had to deal with any hardcore maintenance This is a thing that is outside of the "for the average user" ability level. Fortunately I've leveled up since I started so I think I'll be able to handle it. But hopefully Makerbot has solved this for the Rep2.
Makes me wonder how many people are struggling with this and have just given up on their Replicator.
