README.rdoc

Provides a programming interface to commnicate with a MakerBot 3D Printer.

Should eventually be able to do everything that ReplicatorG can do… but for now it is very incomplete.

Ruby gem usage

require "rublicatorg"

makerbot = RublicatorG.new("/dev/tty.usbserial-FTE3Q0I3")

puts "Motherboard Firmware Version: #{makerbot.motherboard_version}"

Command line

Also installs a rublicatorg binary that can be called on the command line.

Usage: rublicatorg [options] [file]
    -p, --port PORT                  Serial port (can also be specified in ~/.rublicatorgrc)
    -l, --list                       List the files stored on the SD card
    -r, --run FILE                   Run the FILE from the SD card
    -h, --help                       Display this screen

To avoid having to specify the serial port, you can create a ~/.rublicatorgrc file like so:

port = /dev/tty.usbserial-A600emXZ
