How to Replace the Bumper Pad

    What is the Bumper Pad?

    The MakerBot Replicator 2 bumper pad is a round rubber pad that helps keep your build plate secure and stable. The bumper pad can be found on the rear side of the tab at the back of the build platform.

    If something happens to the bumper pad in your MakerBot Replicator 2, you can purchase a replacement here.

    Removal and Installation

    To remove the bumper pad, peel it off the tab. Replace it with a new bumper pad before beginning your next print. 

    To install the bumper pad, remove the protective backing. Press the pad vertically against the rear side of the tab at the back of the build platform.
