First, we'll add the E180 as a custom printer. Navigate to
Preferences > Printers > Add. Give the printer it a name (Geeetech E180), and use the following settings:
X (Width): 130mm Y (Depth): 130mm Z (Height): 130mm Build plate shape: Rectangular Gcode flavor: Repetier
X min: 10mm Y min: 10mm X max: 0mm Y max: 0mm Gantry height: 999999mm Number of extruders: 1
Next, we'll import our material settings for printing PLA on the E180. Of course, this can be adjusted later on a per-print basis, but this will get you started. Navigate to
Preferences > Materials > Import.
I uploaded the material settings to Github here. Import that file.
Finally, we'll create a print profile. Again, this will import the ideal print profile settings for the E180. Once imported, we can select this profile whenever we make prints on the E180 and then make tweaks on a per-print basis.
I uploaded the print profile settings to Github here. Navigate to
Preferences > Profiles > Import and import this profile.
You're good to go! Now you can create gcode files for your Geeetech E180 using Cura, Repetier, Slic3r, or your other slicer of choice -- on either Mac or Windows!
A 3D-printed house? What about a store that 3D prints you a custom shoe? And will we be able to, one day, 3D print our way to Mars? It's all possible!
