Side Loading third party sliced GCode via XYZ Ware software to the Da Vinci 2.0 3D Printer;

To get started, you will need to download and install the Repetier Host (www.repetier.com/download-software/) software as well as the Note++ application from here(notepad-plus-plus.org)

Next, below are screen shots as well as a picture of a sample print out done with the XYZ Ware Da Vinci 2.0 using this configuration header and footer.  Also the idea behind this was to develop a “workable” solution, not a perfect solution as there is plenty of room for improvement.  As discussed in the video, we simply took the header from an XYZ Ware created, graphed it on to gcode created by  Slic3r, covert to Base64 in Note++ and save a dot.3w file for import into XYZ Ware where it was transmitted to the printer.  In short extruder and bed temp are hard coded as well as the left filament run.  We did try editing the header, however it lead to problems so we simply expected it in whole and works as the resulting has to be edited anyway in Note++ and we will cover more of this in the video.
