Cura and Replicator 2x

Recommended Posts

It can be done, but I do not know the details. I pretty much gave up on trying to help people when Makerbot actively refused my posts on their support groups.

Note that I haven't had reports of anyone getting it to work with dual-extrusion. But for single extrusion it can work for sure.

If you carefully explain to Daid what changes need to be made that make Cura work better with any printer I'm sure he will do them. He already seems to support printrbot in particular.

Printrbot in particular is open-source, whereas Makerbot isn't (any more), so there's that.

Yes but Daid has said before that he'd like Cura to support Makerbot printers. And I think he's requested that someone nice out there send him a free one... :)

And other makerbot owners have requested and gotten features that make Cura work better with makerbot.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
