Using Repetier-Host with MakiboxPosted by Wesley on
Makibox working with Repetier-Host
A 3D printer needs a host software that sends various commands for printing. In the case of Makibox, an in-house developed one called 5DPrint does this. It's made as a Chrome web app, which runs on top of the Chrome web browser, and thus supports multiple platforms.
Unfortunately, a recent Chrome update seems to have broken the data communications to the printer, and many users are reporting that 5DPrint no longer recognizes the printer, including myself. Luckily, there are other, more capable host software out there. One of them is Repetier-Host.
As you can see, it has no problems making Makibox work. However, a bit of configuration is necessary. Read on to find out.
