Replicator G 0027 Released!

Hot on the heels of ReplicatorG 0026, we are already releasing a new version, ReplicatorG 0027. Most users will see no major feature additions in this version, but there are a stack of bugfixes, including the automated build platform belt issue, as well as  some important user interface improvements and other tweaks. However, for advanced users, we did include support for our experimental DualStrusion process into this release as a full feature, so it’s easier to get those awesome multi-color prints. The UI tweaks come compliments of Rob Giseburt, one of our community contributors. He had a great idea for a design to simplify skeinforge settings selection, and it worked so well we included in into our codebase. Many thanks to Rob!

Some details on the interface tweaks after the jump!

Most of the UI changes are related to Gcode generation.  Now, when you click “Generate Gcode,” you’ll see a streamlined interface to selecting your printing profile.  Just choose the base profile, or click to use the familiar Print-O-Matic menu to edit  edit the most-often-used settings.

 

To edit profiles, go to ReplicatorG’s “GCode” menu and click “Edit Base Profiles.”  There, you’ll see the old Edit/Duplicate options.

     

Those are the basics of ReplicatorG 0027 — stay tuned for updates on DualStrusion and other finer points!

    Hi, I was testing different Java launchers for Windows (because the included one does not allow me to use a .stl file as argument to double click a file and get ReplicatorG opened with that file) and I noticed that with JSmooth ReplicatorG is launched 2 seconds faster and there is arguments support :D

    Just extract the exe and enjoy!: http://servicios.ried.cl/makerbot/fixes/ReplicatorG-launcher-0027.rar

    It would be nice to get back the ability to activate/deactivate support without using the rest of print-o-matic, maybe checkboxes in print-o-matic to turn off certain portions. I have settings in my profiles, like different numbers of shells for different types of layers, that I would rather not have overridden.

    What I would LOVE to have is a text box where I can type my own one-time overrides, as I’m amassing a lot of profiles with only one or two settings differentiating them.
