It's at this stage we can see the tradeoff between software and hardware: maybe the printer has the capability to print with greater resolution but current software might only break the model down so far? Or perhaps it's the opposite, where the software can break down the model finer than the hardware is capable of producing? It turns out this is a major factor in what separates personal and commercial printers, and even a $200 and $2,000 printer—precision. More precision costs more money in both hardware and software development.

The ReplicatorG software undoubtedly served as a building block for many of the features in MakerWare, and was the leading software for personal/hobbyist 3D printing for many years. The MakerWare software will meet all the needs for our designs, but if you are interested in learning more about open source 3D printing, I would suggest checking out this software. 1) for the examples in the book, as this software is most tailored to our needs. com/makerware/ to download your own beta copy. MakerWare options and settings The first step after opening MakerWare is to add a model to the build platform by clicking on the Add button.

1, I would argue that the MakerWare software surpasses the ReplicatorG for use with a MakerBot 3D printer. This is one of the joys of being involved with MakerBot and the 3D printing environment- The products are always evolving and always improving. In a period of five years, MakerBot went from an idea to being acquired by Stratasys for $403 million. This speaks for how fast the industry is moving, and how fast the technology is advancing. com/blog/category/makerbot-software-updates/ to see a detailed description (lots of pictures) of the improvements in each MakerWare update.
