What is the make/model of a MakerBot Replicator+ motherboard?

I'm assuming that the make is now MakerBot since they are now closed-source.

    $\begingroup$ really good question. someone who has it should open his machine... $\endgroup$ – Trish Mar 6 at 20:39
  • $\begingroup$ I don't have a MakerBot Replicator+ to verify with but, if this Geetech wiki post is to be believed, MakerBot printers use their own own open source design called 'MightyBoard'. $\endgroup$ – Dr. Mantis Tobbogan Mar 28 at 14:49
  • $\begingroup$ @Dr.MantisTobbogan Thanks for the link, but that's for the original Replicator generation that was released around 2011. Since then MakerBot Industries has gone closed-source. The Replicator+ has its controls screwed shut and I'm afraid if I open it there might be some alignment issues, given the history of their frame designs... $\endgroup$ – tbm0115 Mar 30 at 17:30

It might be this board, MakerBot 5th Generation motherboard, (original image)

The image was very small, so it is rather blurry, I'm afraid.

I have contacted the suppliers for confirmation, and will update this answer, when/if I get a reply.

However, according to this eBay item, Makerbot Replicator Motherboard Carriage, it could be inferred1 that the same motherboard (MP6292) is used in the Fifth Generation and the Replicator+

This part is the aluminum carriage that attaches the main board to the printer frame.

Compatible with Makerbot Replicator Fifth Generation (5th Gen) and Replicator+ (Plus).

NOTE: Motherboard show here is for illustration purposes only! Motherboard (MP6292) is NOT included.

Main board presses right onto the carriage. No special tools are needed for assembly. Retaining screw is included.
