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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
