3D printing software for Windows 2000?


 Share

Recommended Posts

There are enough ways to create STL files (even a text editor!) so that isn't a problem. Sending G-code to the printer uses a USB-serial adaptor so that should also be doable. But can I do the in-between step of "slicing" the model to convert it to G-code on Win2K?

Slic3r has a command-line version, but it complained about missing function AttachConsole in kernel32. Does the function exist in extended kernel? I haven't tried it yet with extended kernel.

I setup a Printrbot in my basement so the cats don't destroy it. All my basement PCs run Win2K...

Well... I don't know anything about Python but I tried to download and install several different versions from your link, always receiving the error message "program too big to fit in memory." I found that extended kernel does have AttachConsole, however slic3r still fails to run with "generated errors and will be closed by windows." I guess for now I will have to generate g-code on a separate PC.
