Do you plan on porting to Linux or releasing the source code?

Hi anewsome,

now you can choose the language (english or german).
I'm still working on the Replicator-G-code ...

Hi,

now i got the Makerware-Software and tested it: actually it does not work with G-Opti...I'm working on this ...

Instructions

Hi,

I use Axon 2 and was not very happy with the results.

So I started to develop a little software, that is able to optimize the g-code-files (i.e. *.bfb).

The software is still experimental, but everyone can download it from: g-opti.com

The g-opti-software has the following features:

- derafting (first 2 layers - raft has to be of different material than object!)
- adding a 'start-string'
- keep cooler always on
- reduce speed of 'fast-movement'
- add 'Z-move' whenever the extruder moves to a new position
- add comments to all g-code-commands (expt. "G1"-moves)
- send an SMS to your mobile phone when the optimizing-process is finished

In future there will be these additional features:

- setting the temperature for each of the first two layers
- setting the extruder-rate for each of the first two layers
- setting the temperature and the extruder-rate for the last layer

Actually the software is only available in english and german language.

BUT ATTENTION: the software is experimental !!! So check out the result-file to avoid damage to your printer !!!

Everyone uses the software on his own risk !!

Happy printing

I'd be interested in an English version. Also, do you think this could be used on G-code from ReplicatorG?
