Cura configuration file for Makerbot?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I've recently discovered the incredible world of 3D printing and have purchased a Makerbot replicator printer. I must admit I wasn't really into searching and comparing different brands, and I deeply regret it. The thing is I've been reading about Cura excellent performances while my makerware has been doing quite poorly and this is why I'm asking you guys - Is there any Cura configuration file available for Makerbot? Can anyone share it with me? My son and I would be thankful!

Thank you in advance,

Cheers.

Makerbots and variants based on the Sailfish firmwares all consume X3G (a newer version of S3G)

You can use Cura to generate GCODE but you must them post process it with either ReplicatorG, Makerware, or GPX to create an X3G file.

GPX is a tool made to take Gcode and post process it for Makerbot style printers: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:81425

I had it working as a post process script with Cura but I haven't done much with my makerbot in some time so I don't have the setup handy anymore.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
