Hey @Wolflink,

 

Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉

 

I haven't printed with a Replicator 2x yet, nut I understand that it supports .X3G.
We have a plugin on the marketplace, contributed by our wonderful community member Ghostkeeper, that supports this output. If I read through the description it seems to mention the makerbot replicator 2x.

 

You can get the plug-in here: 
https://marketplace.ultimaker.com/app/cura/plugins/Ghostkeeper/X3GWriter

Good luck and happy printing! 💪

    Hello @MariMakes,

     

    By any chance do you know how to change the default Cura generated code for the MakerBot flavor?

    I also have a MakerBot Replicator 2X, but the code generated by Cura isn't using the (correct?) G-code that the machine use.

    ;MakerBot Desktop Output
    M136 (enable build)
    M73 P0
    G162 X Y F2000(home XY axes maximum)
    G161 Z F900(home Z axis minimum)
    G92 X0 Y0 Z-5 A0 B0 (set Z to -5)
    G1 Z0.0 F900(move Z to '0')
    G161 Z F100(home Z axis minimum)
    M132 X Y Z A B (Recall stored home offsets for XYZAB axis)
    G92 X152 Y72 Z0 A0 B0
    G1 X-112 Y-73 Z150 F3300.0 (move to waiting position)
    G130 X20 Y20 A20 B20 (Lower stepper Vrefs while heating)
    M109 S110 T0
    M134 T0
    M135 T0
    M104 S230 T0
    M133 T0
    G130 X127 Y127 A127 B127 (Set Stepper motor Vref to defaults)

    The Cura generated G-code uses M190 S100 which doesn't keep the bed heated after the temperature is reached. On the other hand, the original MakerBot slicer uses M109 S110 which does keep the bed heated at the set temperature. 

    The M190 g-code is generated by Cura so I have no way of changing it.

     

    Currently the machine does:

    1. Heats the bed to 100C with M190
    2. Heats the nozzle to 230C with M104 while the bed is cooling due to not keeping the temperature
    3. runs the start G-code, which I added the M109 to heat the bed again and keep the temperature
    4. goes on with the sliced g-code

     

    Any help is appreciated,

    Arthur
