In using Simplify 3D for creating the .gcode that sets the toolpath and OctoPrint for MakerGear for setting up, maintaining, and controlling the printer, you can be confident that your printer will perform as intended.
Simplify3D—As the leading proprietary 3D printing software, Simplify 3D organizes an incredible amount of functionality, including industry-leading dual extruder features, into a simple user interface. Make no mistake about it, any time this much functionality is being offered, it can seem daunting to learn, but Simplify 3D makes it as easy as possible.
OctoPrint for MakerGear—we have taken the very popular open-source printer control software and added functionality specific to MakerGear printers. This software allows you to control your printer from any web-enabled device (desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone). It also has an immense library of plug-ins designed by the community-at-large that enable features like remote video monitoring. A portion of all MakerGear printer sales goes to keeping this open source community strong.
