I took the plunge and purchased Simplify3D. Nice package, but the Mac version is buggy. It crashes frequently on loading STL files and at other times that I find totally random.

Supports full Colour with as many extruders as your printer has from what I can gather, I don't yet have my second extruder going so I haven't tested. I read somewhere in the forums that the display does not show colour in the print preview and is a wanted feature, but does print in colour. I don't know how it handles dual head issues, i.e. oozing etc

What settings do you use Seaton?
What profile? Replicator 2 as default and than use the Felix dimensions and steps?

I just made my own profile and saved it, now shows up in the machine profiles.

happy to share, but just playing getting my bearings with it atm so will change. just import the following .fff file in the settings after unzipping
Felix.fff.zip

I do prefer the way Kisslicer handles profiles for machines, filament, support and general settings over Simplify3D

Seaton, awesome result! Did you use "smart" ABS? Is the surface smoothed, for instance by a vapor treatment?
