Hi

Recently the Makerbot blog has posted a picture with a comparison build of the new Makerbot and the its predecessor the Cupcake:

"One of the more frequent questions people would ask us at CES was “what’s the difference between a Thing-O-Matic and a Cupcake?” We’d tell them about the improved Z stage travel, microstepping, mechanical endstops, etc. but sometimes it’s easier to show than tell:"

haha.

They also didn't mention to whether it was a cupcake with a MK4 or MK5, though maybe it does not matter since that does look like a lot of z-wobble in the print.
