Slic3r Thing-O-Matic Fix
by teppic, published
This is my Slic3r settings for Thing-O-Matic, including a postprocessing script to create the correct extrusion commands.
These settings works great for me, although I haven't really measured and calibrated the result yet. Feel free to share your experience and improvements!

Hmm, I wouldn't think that this script would cause such error message. I can't really say what it means though... Nice to hear that it (sort of) works however!
Tested it works fine just gives red error driver replicatorg.drivers.gen3.Makerbot4GAlternateDriver@1c98c1bis not an instance of IntractiveDisplay. every min but not effecting build.
Â I'm glad that you like it! Make sure that it generates all three of the commands: M101, M102, M103.
You need to make sure that "use relative e-distances" is checked in the extrusion settings. Otherwise the script won't work.
The script never modifies the extrusion speed. The speed is set once in the start.gcode. Perhaps that is the problem. You can always try modifying the extrusion speed there though. I'll try to fix this in a later version.

2. Place tomfix.py in the same directory as Slic3r.exe (on Linux you might have to add the entire absolute path to the script in slic3r's config)
3. tweak your speeds and anything else you might want to.
4. Generate g-code and check that the post-process script ran correctly (the first line should contain the following: "Processed with tomfix.py", otherwise you will have to check your console output for errors.
4. Load g-code into ReplicatorG and press Build
Please note that the speeds are adapted for accelerated build with the jetty firmware. If you use the vanilla firmware, you will probably have to decrease the speeds a bit.
