Recommendation for G Code Generator
January 19, 2012 09:49AM
Hey guys,

I am pulling my hair out trying to work with Skeinforge 35. The settings are so esoteric, and some work and some just don't. It is quite frustrating.

Does anybody have recommendations which G Code generator is easy to use and stable?

Thanks,
Keff

Thanx Glyn,

I downloaded it but found it did not interface with Skeinforge. Anyways I found out you are using it with Repsnapper and I will try that. From first impressions it looks much user friendly.

Slick3r is cool especially the fancy algorithms.

Slick3r is good but I have found that it does not work with some complicated stl files, I have been persevering with skeinforge and got it to work on the files that slick3r could not handle.

As an example I created some text in sketchup and slick3r would not process that.
