    Makerware 2.4.0.14 Download (x64)

    IF YOU WANT A PRINT PREVIEW BEFORE YOU PRINT - GET THIS VERSION.

    Hi,
    I find that version 2.4.27 sucks for the old flashforge- and dual prints come out whack, so for anyone with an old wooden flashforge dual, this is the best working makerware i've found.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Since Makerware is no longer available for download, here is the 64 bit version of the last known (well, the last that I know) working version for the FlashForge 3D (that lets you actually do proper dual extrusion...)

    The new Makerbot Desktop software, for me, is not compatible with my old flashforge and does some very strange things, so I simply stick with the older Makerware. Sad thing is, they have removed the download now in an effort to push people on to their newer, crapper, more expensive machines.

    MakerWare v2.4.0.14 Mediafire Link

    Awesome of you Geoff. I was able to secure a copy from another helpful forum member not too long ago after I discovered makerbot had pulled all downloads and support pages for the old software.

    Makerware is gone unless you have a Makerbot?

    Nope, it's still there - you can download the new version 3 of the software - but it's proper idiot software. Bugger all options, horrible interface, tries to tie you into their online system. Just not nice to use, at all.
    2.4.014 was the last decent version.

    Ya, went to look after posting. Was thinking Makerware was going to be licensed by machine which wouldn't surprise me.

    I thought Makerware Desktop was ok. But using S3D for now.

    ok so finally got around to trying to install this, and wont install under windows 8.1, even running compatability mode as win 7, then trying to run as admin still no go, surely there has to be a way to install it on a win 8.1 machine

    I don't have windows 8.1 sorry, and because its the 64bit version, the xp-mode virtual machine wont work .. damn.
