Re: Need example for SD printing on Rep2

I gave the offset a whirl. After some trial and error I came up with an X offset of -270 and a Y offset of -127. This places the print pretty much centered on the build plate. I think there is probably a better fix for this, my print is rotated 180 degrees from the gcode preview, but at least it is ...

Re: Need example for SD printing on Rep2

I did a little more testing. I took the gcode file that creator put out, put it into repG to create the x3g file, and got the same results. This suggests to me that gpx is working fine but the gcode I am getting out of creator is off. My guess is that the axis are are reading zero at the wrong place...

Re: Need example for SD printing on Rep2

I tried a print of my x3g file and there were problems. In the software I had centered the print but when my printer did the print it placed it in the back right corner, so far back that a good part of the print was off the platform. I used the profiles from the author of the GPX found here https://...

Re: Need example for SD printing on Rep2

I have been in contact with the GPX author and I guess I don't need to do anything else if I want the print to have the same properties as what I have specified in creator. Hopefully will have some time this evening to do some printing and see the results of all this.

Re: Need example for SD printing on Rep2

I put this in the post processing script

/Users/preuss/Documents/gpx/gpx -p -m r2 "[output_filepath]"

and it did indeed output an x3g file in the same directory as the gcode file. Now I need to figure out these GPX ini files, but those are questions for a different forum.

Need example for SD printing on Rep2

I have a replicator 2 running sailfish in which I always print from SD card. I am trying to figure out the workflow on getting an x3g file to copy to my SD card. It seems that I need to use the GPX tool to get that x3g file created, but there isn't much documentation on how that works. Has anyone su...
