using cura with makerbot

will the x3gwriter plugin work for using cura with my makerbot replicator+?  i am needing a better software program than makerbot print since this program has very limited settings.  makerbot print does not allow for fine tuning retraction & many more settings that other programs like cura have. i found the x3gwriter plugin that claims to make a slice usable by other printers but i wanted to ask here first.

 

i realize this is a cura forum but if anyone knows of a quality software program that will work with makerbot replicator will you please note it here?  plz & thank you. i am getting dog doo prints using makerbot print b/c it has poop for settings adjustment or not the settings at all.

 

thanks so much as this is quite frustrating & i'm also trying to make money using this replicator+ printer...any help on this is much, much appreciated!

    It should *technically* work. I think replicator and replicator+ might be same'ish? When attempting this.
    Do some more searches of this forum there is a few threads where people have gotten it working.

    Unfortunately, at this time UltiMaker Cura does not officially support the various models of MakerBots at this time. But the Teams do know the request for it.
