Most notably is the addition of complete direct USB support for Makerbot and Sailfish printers. Gain full control of your Makerbot machine using the software's full-featured Machine Control Panel. You can preheat the machine, jog the axes, or even stream your x3g files directly to the printer using your USB cable. We are also including all new upgraded profiles for the Replicator 1, 2, and 2X. These new profiles took months of testing but they provide truly amazing results, even at extreme layer heights like 0.1mm! It's a significant upgrade for these printers and shows our continued commitment to provide the best compatibility in the industry.
The new version also includes several new printing modes to expand the capabilities of your machine.
- A new corkscrew printing mode creates beautiful single outline parts by slowly incrementing the Z-axis during printing. No more layer change marks!
- New sequential printing mode for multi-part printing. This helps improve the surface finish of your parts by allowing your machine to focus on one part at a time instead of constantly switching between models. It also improves reliability since one part could fail without affecting the other parts of your build.
- Great new option for printing 2 or 3 very fine outline layers while still printing just one thick infill layer. This lets you have a high quality surface finish while still achieving great printing times.
