ReplicatorG 0002 Release

RepRap Blog

I''m also releasing ReplicatorG 0002. Today has been a busy day. If you''re not familiar with this software, its a generic GCode host software designed for use with RepRap machines. You feed it a GCode file, it parses it and then uses a driver based system to control a RepRap machine.

Announcing ReplicatorG 0001

RepRap Blog

Its name is ReplicatorG , and it is an open source RepRap controller based around GCode. Hello All, One of the many side projects I''ve been working on lately has now come to fruition!

ReplicatorG 0006 Available

RepRap Blog

ReplicatorG 0006 is now available for your replicating pleasure! If you want to manually select your serial port (say, because ReplicatorG is hanging while trying to scan one of your other serial ports) you can turn the autoscan funtion off by unchecking it in the Machines > Serial menu. This is closer to the behavior of older versions of ReplicatorG, and should end up scanning USB-TTY cables earlier in the process.

ReplicatorG for RepRaps: Beta testers wanted

RepRap Blog

Over the past couple weeks Erik de Bruijn and I have been working on a new and improved RepRap 5D driver for ReplicatorG over on github and I think it''s safe to say that it''s ready for some serious testing. So grab a copy at https://github.com/Ultimaker/ReplicatorG and try it out! But wait, why should I use ReplicatorG you ask? Well if you''ve got a RepRap then ReplicatorG gives you a simple but powerful user interface to your 3d printer.

Speed up Skeinforge slicing with PyPy

DIY 3D Printing

Here is video showing differences in performance when slicing in ReplicatorG with skeinforge.py. PyPy is alternative to standard Python distribution and it can speed up execution of all python code, like skeinforge.py used for slicing.

DIY 3D Printing

From company page about Grid 2: The GRID II is a third generation printer from mbot3D. This sturdy metal frame 3d printer has one of the biggest build sizes on the market for desktop 3D Printers, 260x230x200mm. It is available in single head or dual head configuration.

Repetier vs. Replicator G?

Tales of a 3D Printer

I personally haven''t seen anything on the Repetier panels that isn''t under "Edit Profiles" in ReplicatorG somewhere, but I''ll need more time with it to be sure. With our newest Printrbot, we have been experimenting with the (open source) Repetier software. There are some things the kids like better about it, mostly that the adjustments are easily accessible. They are constantly messing with the print speed, temperature, etc.

What's in our dock for Maker Club?

Tales of a 3D Printer

On the dock: iTunes - after all, they *are* middle school kids Internet Browser(s) FIJI - Fiji Is Just Image J - hopefully to process stacks of scan data MeshLab - Netfabb basic - Repetier - ReplicatorG - SketchUp - Arduino - Scratch - On the desktop: A folder named "Student Projects." One month into our Maker Monday adventures, I think we have assembled a collection of useful tools (for us). This post (as many of the posts on this blog) is evolving as we learn more.

As we wait for the status bar to indicate our stl file has been sliced and is ready to send to the printer, I am often wondering, what is ReplicatorG doing?!

Some of the changes like the eeprom configuration stuff wont be useful until ReplicatorG 0006 comes out in a day or so, but if youre willing to experiment, I encourage folks to try out the new version, and file lots of bug reports. :) Changes from v1.1: * Readme.txt and Changelog.txt introduced. One of my partners at MakerBot, Adam Mayer has been working non-stop on improving the firmware used to drive the 3rd generation electronics for both RepRap and MakerBot machines.

Multimode Host Software

RepRap Blog

This works particularly nicely with GCodes stored in a file (as with Zach''s ReplicatorG), and gives good-quality builds. I have been working on the Java RepRap host software.

New code first build

This improvement was confirmed experimentally and in production by Nophead''s Hydraraptor work, and by Zach''s ReplicatorG G-Code RepRap-driving program.

Finally I can stop missing ReplicatorG, Pronterface to me is now MUCH easier than RepG because of the Gcode simulation view and Gary s quick Skeinforge settings. RepRap: Blog. Blog for the RepRap project at www.reprap.org - a project to create an open-source self-copying 3D printer.

Qidi Tech I 3D Printer Review

3D Printing Hub

Older models of the Qidi Tech I used to come with either MakerWare or ReplicatorG. Launched in 2015, the Qidi Tech I is a clone of the popular FlashForge Creator Pro, which, in turn, was based on the MakerBot Replicator 2X. It’s a lot more affordable, going for $650 at most online stores while the Creator Pro retails for $900. That’s a significant price difference, one that’s hard to pass up for those on a tight budget.

Wahooo!!

RepRap Blog

Well, I finally did it: I''ve printed my first minimug. This may come as a surprise, but the Director of the RepRap Research Foundation has never printed anything, UNTIL NOW! Hey, I never said I was *good* at this stuff, just that I love working with it.)

Review : which software for 3D printers?

Tridimake

The software interface to the printer I also very quickly switched from the default ReplicatorG to Cura for the printing software.

Sorry, I know I posted this one earlier, but I am a sucker for hardware pictures. :) ReplicatorG-Skeinforge-RAMPS Cloudmaker has managed to get RepG to play nice with standard RAMPS. It''s amazing how fast our community evolves. I have been doing this feature at the RepRap Blog for a month now and not once have I ran out of stuff to post.

The up side of Gen4 is that it will out of the box use ReplicatorG, which I think is one of the easiest RepRap control programs, the down side is that Makerbot sells it for $370. RepRap: Blog.

The stepper is hooked up to a standard driver which is hooked up to a RepRap Motherboard which is hooked up to my computer which is running the GCode on ReplicatorG. Warning: this is gonna be a long post. Grab a hot cocoa and settle into a comfy chair.
