GPX was created by Dr. Henry Thomas (aka Wingcommander) in April 2013
GPX is a post processing utility for converting gcode output from 3D slicing software like Cura, KISSlicer, S3DCreator and Slic3r to x3g files for standalone 3D printing on Makerbot Cupcake, ThingOMatic, and Replicator 1/2/2x printers - with support for both stock and sailfish firmwares. My hope is that is little utility will open up Makerbot 3D printers to a range of new and exciting sources and utilities for 3D printing input.
sudo apt-get install gpx
- Download a release .zip file from GPX releases
- Copy gpx.exe from the .zip file to somewhere on your path.
If you'd prefer an installer, you may want to install GPX via GpxUi
- Download a release .dmg file from GPX releases
- Open up the .dmg file and drag the gpx application to /usr/local/bin or somewhere on your PATH
or via homebrew:
brew install gpx
or with a GUI:
Installing from source
You need to have the GNU tools already installed and configured on your machine.
For Windows, mingw or cygwin. For Linux,
sudo apt-get install build-essential. For Mac, perhaps: Xcode menu > Preferences > Downloads >
Command Line Tools.
git clone https://github.com/markwal/GPX cd GPX mkdir build cd build ../configure make sudo make install
