Assembly: Build Plate Installation

    Cable Clamp x 1 

    Move the Z-stage up and snap the cable clamp on to the Heated Build Plate wire near where it enters the inside of The MakerBot Replicator.

    Compression Spring x 4

    Spacers x 4

    Take four springs and four spacers and stack one spacer and one spring on top of each of the four holes in the Z-stage.

    Take out the assembled heated build plate and orient it so that the aluminum heat spreader faces up and the connector is pointed towards the back of The MakerBot Replicator. Lower the build plate onto the Z-stage, with the four long bolts going through the springs and spacers into the holes in the Z-stage. 

    Once the platform is securely in place, raise the Z-stage.

    M3 Steel Thumb Nut x 4 

    Thread one thumb nut onto each of the long bolts emerging from the bottom of the Z-stage.

    Plug the HBP wire connector into the back of the heated build platform.

    Congratulations! With your Heated Build Plate installed, your MakerBot Replicator is fully assembled.
