FedEx just delivered the Replicator 2 spring-loaded drive block replacement kit that I ordered from Makerbot earlier this week. It’s a free part, you just have to pay tax and any shipping/handling fees. Dylan Ryder and I just installed the new drive block and it works amazingly! It’s seriously like having a brand new and improved machine. If you haven’t already ordered the part, do it now!

Request the drive block replacement here: http://store.makerbot.com/extruder-upgrade
Follow the installation instructions in the video here:

The good people at Makerbot’s customer service also sent me this video about how to clear a thermal barrier tube block in the machine’s extruder with this video tutorial:
