I have a replicator 2 with makerbot firmware.
I used to create g code and x3g files with replicator g (0040) skeinforge 50.
The laptop I used for everything died so I installed S3D on my PC yesterday because I could not get repg and python to cooperate on my PC.
With S3D my issues seem to be mostly first layer and I've been trying to tweak settings to get it to stick.
I've read through some of the troubleshooting guides and most of Clint's Settings manual.
I added some skirts but even those just do no seem to be sticking and then they end up getting pulled into the model when it starts the model layer 1, which then cascades into a storm of glop.
On the printer I can go form a S3D file that fails and immediately load an older, Rep G file and the print works.
So I have ruled out hardware.... and want to know if there is a way to get my S3D to mimic the startup setting of an old RepG file since those just work.
...Especially the blob/wipe that it used to do seemed to get the prints to start off great.
It would do a purge and keep extruding across the bed, right up to/ into the part.
I tried loading a custom wipe that someone had posted on this forum and it helped but not as good of a result.
Is there some way to look at one of my old gcode files and pull the startup settings/info out and get them into S3D?
I'm not gcode literate but trying to understand what it was doing.
