About Smart Extruder Plus »

Notes from the Workshop:
Standard on the new MakerBot Replicator+, this is a strongly recommended upgrade for Fifth Generation MakerBot Replicator printers! There are two Smart Extruder+ models available: Model #MP07325 (for the Replicator+, Replicator 5th Generation, Replicator+ Mini, & Replicator Mini) and Model #MP07326 (for the Z18). Please select the appropriate Smart Extruder+ for your Makerbot model.

Extensively tested for over 160,000 hours of continuous 3D printing, Makerbot’s new Smart Extruder+ has been completely redesigned for reliability, consistency, and intelligent monitoring. Re-engineered from the original Smart Extruder, the Smart Extruder+ offers precise homing capabilities, enhanced sensor intelligence, and reduced probability of clogs or jams. In the event that the unit senses an absence or jam of PLA filament, it will pause the print and notify the user via their desktop computer or mobile phone.

The Smart Extruder+ is made from high density PC-ABS and features an extended PTFE tube that reduces the chance of clogging. Upgraded electronic components are also included; featuring enhanced sensor technology that are capable of making more intelligent decisions. The Smart Extruder+ features high-grade heat components and a .4mm diameter brass nozzle.

The Smart Extruder+ is designed with modularity & ease of use in mind. The convenient magnet-based design makes removing and replacing the unit extremely easy. Without any need for tools, users can remove and replace the Smart Extruder+ in seconds.

The Smart Extruder+ also has upgraded build plate leveling capabilities when compared to its predecessor, and is constantly updated & improved via firmware updates. Thanks to improved internal hardware, the unit also ensures smoother and more reliable filament flow than ever before.

The Smart Extruder+ is designed to accommodate 1.75mm PLA filament, specifically via the MakerBot brand. Using 3rd party filament or experimenting with other materials is physically possible, but not endorsed by MakerBot - and doing so will void the warranty on your Smart Extruder+. The extruder otherwise includes a 6 month warranty, increased from the 3 month warranty originally included with the 1st generation Smart Extruder.

*Though quite durable, the Smart Extruder+ is a consumable piece of equipment that needs to be replaced intermittently. MakerBot anticipates a minimum 700 hour printing-time lifespan of consistent and reliable printing, but found that even after 1,200 hours of printing - 90% of units remained in operation.
