Hey Rachel!

The cupcake on the right side (whiter) working well.

does version 0027 give you default option with cupcake? if not, use
replicatorG 0026.

We are at toorcamp and the network here is so fucked up, that we are not
able to get online all the time. sorry for that.

try out and see what happens.

also, if the plastic not stick to the heating build platform, try lower
down the z axis manually by turning the handle on the top of cupcake.

good luck!
