Makerware

Post by hoolito »

Hi,

Has someone tried Makerware (slicing software for the makerbot) to perform slicing?
It's like 20x faster than SFACT...!

Of course a proprietary app will not work on a non-proprietary element. but how about just slicing it, as in get the g-code produced (and yes, there should be a way to output that)

I just thought about it, installed it (it's free to download), dropped an .stl in it and sliced.
Of course, the program asks for a choice of a slicing profile and Felix isn't there.... But it should be possible to create a profile...
The .gcode imports then fine in Repetier Host and it shows proper, only with a different origin of X,Y.
Apparently the center of a Replicator is the 0,0). I don't know how to move it back on the table.

Hello

Try sending G92 Z0 X0 Y0 when you are in the middle of your print bed and your nozzle is at your Z-home poss. That way you tell the printer that this is your center and that you are on center, then hit print. Look in the g-code and remove any home moves.

Or simply, for a quick test, when you start printing and the axis moves to home positions, trigger the opto end switch(s) (you can use a piece of paper) at the middle and there you go
