At last I found all the information and software I needed to get my Scoovo 3D printer working on my iMac using MacOS Sierra
So, after using the Scoovo for over 2 years on Windows, its a pleasure to have it running on the Mac.
After a little searching around the internet for free 3D printer host software I came across a real nice gem. Its called Repetier, and best of all, its FREE! I cannot thank the guys at Repetier enough for producing a most excellent software solution to 3D printing on the Apple Mac. Check out their site here.:www.repetier.com
And thanks to a Japanese blog post where I found all the settings for using a Scoovo with Repetier. Click on the link below to see the settings blog page:shajiku3d.blog.fc2.com
The reason for getting my Scoovo 3D printer working on my iMac was all to do with efficiency. The awesome design software I use, Fusion 360, I have on the Mac. So using Windows was very inefficient for me - designing the 3D data, converting to an STL format, transferring to the Windows machine with a USB memory stick and then printing. But now, a few of those steps have been removed and the whole process becomes easier!
This allows me to make 3D printing videos much quicker! Check out the IndustrialPunk channel on YouTube!
