Yet another quick heater hack


Here it is under test with a random bit of tube to simulate a heater barrel. The ideal off the shelf heater would be a cartridge heater but they tend to be at least 1" long, need mains voltage and are very expensive.

After a long wait, ReplicatorG 0005 is finally available for your printing and simulating enjoyment. Most of the changes have been stability fixes and tinkering under the hood, but theres also a bunch of changes that should make your life a bit easier (especially if you were using 0004): * ReplicatorG is now much smarter about serial ports. When you select a machine type that uses a serial port, it will automatically scan all available serial ports to try to detect a working machine. *
