Shakespeare's 6th Birthday by Lindsayloveshermac

Are you working your bot too hard? (Is your bot working you too hard?)

Ever wanna just take the night off, spend some quality time with your robot? Maybe toss the ole Calibration Cube between the two of you?

Now you can: partymode

Here is how you do it.

Create a short snip of G-code1 saved as a “.gcode” file, put it in a “partymode” folder, and drop the “partymode” folder into the “scripts” folder within ReplicatorG 24.

Code can be a fun set of movements, a tune, a gesture, a microprint, a neat trick.

Make sure it will play on all MakerBots (don’t play favorites: Thing-O-Matics and Cupcakes are both invited to the party). Test and tune right in the G-code window of ReplicatorG.2 Call the script from here: “File > scripts > partymode.”

Now it is time to throw a party! Hire a caterer! Stock up on 3-IN-ONE oil! Activate your script and get down with your bad self, while your bot is bot-bot-botting along next to you.

Was your party a smash success? Share back!

Was there cake?3 Share your partymode script on Thingiverse. There’s a new tag in Thingiverse-town, and it’s shakin’ all the nation’. partymode

And get your partymode script up by midnight, Wednesday, March 16th and it will be under consideration for inclusion in a “partymode” folder for future ReplicatorG releases.4

Error - could not find Thing 6964.
  1. wanna repeat? throw an M30 at the end — at least until ReplicatorG 25 comes out []
  2. Ah, G-code, you are so groovy and human-readable. []
  3. I was told there would be cake. []
