Posted · repG version?

While waiting for my kit too arrive I am reading up on the repG software. I downloaded the 'latest' version which is repG-0029_r2. I can't find anyone using or even mentioned in any of the post.... :roll: did I get the wrong version or ?? Another question is when I load an stl in the program it comes in so small I can't hardly see it. I have to 'scale' it up a huge amount in order to work with it. Does using this scale affect the print size? Pretty dumb questions, I know but hey, what are dumb people for..... :lol:

    Ok thanks for this...! I definitely have the wrong version....From what I've read, Netfabb isn't all that great either. Until the newer version comes out, everyone is generating a code in Netfabb, saving it and loading it up in RepG to print it. To print it in RepG you have to modify the software somewhat. Is that a close overview? thanks much again..!

    The printing from NetFabb is broken right now. But the slicer (Model->GCode) is a piece of wonder (as far as I understand, I don't have NetFabb). And even printing from RepG is not the best way, printing from PrintRun is even more stable. RepG itself doesn't do any slicing, it uses Skeinforge to do that. So you got a bunch of different steps (modeling -> slicing -> printing) and all those steps have different software options. With advantages and disadvantages.

    Wrong! where did you find that link? Because you should point to the ErikZalm version, that's the latest and most stable version.

    You know, I thought there was a newer version than the one I linked to, but I couldn't find it. It's hard to keep track of all these Marlins sometimes. :?

    I just noticed I might sounded a bit harsh, was not the intention. It is confusing, but ErikZalm is maintaining a stable up to date version in his v1 branch (which is the default branch you see)
