My Printer Squeaks During Printing

Squeaking noises during printing probably mean the threaded Z-axis rods on your MakerBot Replicator Z18 need to be lubricated. You can lubricate the two threaded Z-axis rods using PTFE grease, available at the MakerBot Store.

How do I lubricate the threaded rods?
