MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
I just bought a Da Vinci Jr 1.0w a few weeks ago and was really excited to finally have a printer of my own. But after using it for awhile and realizing that everything about this printer is proprietary, from the filament used to it's slicing software. I find myself looking for ways to improve this printer. Does anyone here know of any mods or upgrades that would allow the use of other filament types (ABS, nylon, etc) and improve print quality?
one way is with hacking the firmware but you get no support from xyz and you need a better hot end
i did the ramps conversion... took me about 25 hours total but its completely non-destructive. I can go right back to the "original" board as soon as someone figures out how to flash custom firmware to the OEM board.
Info on 3 and 4 you can find if soliforum dot com forum.
Hope this helps.
Thank you! I'll look into that one
