The Ultimate Compatibility Thread

Thu Jun 27, 2013 5:31 am

We get a lot of emails from new users asking what printers the Creator software is compatible with. While we could tell them all the technical answers about different firmware variants, we decided it would be must more interesting to put together an ongoing list of every printer the software is already being used on. We got it started by compiling all of the communications and success stories we've already heard from current users. You can find the beginning of this list below.

If you are using the Creator software with a printer that isn't on this list, please let us know! We'll get the list updated right away.

Without further adieu, here is the ongoing compatibility list!
  • Airwolf3D Prusa Mendel
  • Cubify CubeX
  • Deezmaker Bukobot
  • Fablicator
  • Felix 1.5/2.0
  • Fusion3 Designs F-306
  • LeapFrog Creatr
  • LulzBot AO-101
  • MakerGear Prusa Mendel
  • MakerGear Mosaic M1
  • MakerGear M2
  • MendelMax 1.5/2.0
  • MakerBot Thing-O-Matic
  • MakerBot Replicator 1
  • MakerBot Replicator 2
  • MakerBot Replicator 2X
  • MBot Cube
  • MendelMaxPro
  • Printrbot Simple/Jr/LC/Plus
  • Prusa Mendel
  • QU-BD Revolution Series
  • RepRapPro Mendel
  • Robo3D
  • Rostock Max
  • Solidoodle 1/2/3
  • Type A Machines Series1
  • Ultimaker
We're constantly working with new hardware companies to expand this list. We already support Sprinter, Marlin, Sailfish, MakerBot, and the CubeX firmwares out-of-the-box, which covers the vast majority of printers out there. If you would like to work with us to expand the compatibility of the software to your machine, don't hesitate to get in touch.

Please keep posts brief and to the point so we can use this thread as a resource to new users.

What profile do I add for a LeapFrog Creatr in the FFF settings?

This is a good list, but are the profiles for each machine being bundled with the software?

I'm a new user, but I have seen only seen 5 of them and 1 default ...

- Default
- MakerGear M2
- Prusa Mendel
- Makerbot Replicator 2
- Makerbot Replicator 2x
- Rostock Max

I'm using a LeapFrog Creatr and by lack of anything better I picked the default one - which appears to print pretty OK.
Would be nicer to recognize my own printer though :-)

Note:
I'm very impressed by this application.
Slicing is indeed significantly faster and printing seems smoother as well.
I've use Repetier w/Slic3r and Pronterface w/Slic3r before.
I do like Repetier, Pronterface not so much, but both use the same slicer.

I'll let you add my Aluminatus A1 into the list once I get some of the hardware fixed and I can test out the bed leveling (still haven't fixed the homing switches). But many of the promised things work great!

Looking at the "Load Profile" drop down on the FFF Settings screen, I only see starting profiles for 5 types of printers. We need a map or matrix showing which profile(s) goes with which printers and which models of printers. There are also a few more printers in the x3G file post processing section in the Scripts tab of the FFF Settings. It would be very helpful to know which profile goes with which printer, or if some profiles are missing. (See profile management suggestion to be posted shortly.)

+1 for problemchild's idea!

Or have the dropdown list have all printers in it ... :-)
