Mach3 Addon

  • Mach3 3D printer Add-on
I am very happy to announce that I have written an Add-on for mach3 which will allow you to use mach3 as a 3D printer Software. You will use mach3 software both for slicng the STL file and printing directly.
Please watch video in full screen…
Installation Notes:
– Please download the setup1.3.exe and install (may request administrator privilege. The user name and password is your own administrator user name and password)
– It includes Slic3r inside (

  1. Oh ok. thanks. one more question, do you know anything about teacup? is it a firmware or what? the internet doesnt tell me anything about it and what it does.

  2. Hi,
    this question regards the power supply. I have 4 steppers each using 12v and 15 amps, and the heated bed and extruder also using 12v but take a lot of amperage to heat. What power supply would you reccomend, and how would i set it up in a manner which will give each appliance its correct current and voltage? I was thinking of setting it up in parallel.
    Thanks again,

    • It is better to use a dedicated power supply for the heated bed if it source lots of current. Wiring them in parallel is not a good idea.
      If you can measure the amps needed choose a power supply 3-5 amps more powerful.

  3. Hello from Greece,
    im using your software for mach3 so i can do 3d printing with my cnc..i want to ask you something,first thank you for sharing this software and information and second, how am i suppose to see and control the temprature of my extruder?? and one more question, when i select STL file and upload the Gcode to mach3, i move X axis or Y or Z and the scale is 25:1…i mean that i move for 100mm and the machine moves for 2500mm so the part i want to print is 25 times smaller! how can i fix it?

  4. Hello and congs for your awesome job. One question. When i post the code on mach3 and i press start i dont see the a axis (filament stepper) moving at all. Why is that?

    • It seams that this question is a Mach3 question. Did you enable the 4th axis inside Config/Ports and Pins/Motor outputs?
      You have to have the green checkbox near 4th axis.

      Hope this helps

    good morning
    I get scratched and I’ve built a large size 3d printer
    I’m new to the industry
    I uploaded its 3d print application to the mach3
    all right
    But when I open mach3, in the pull wizard, pick wizard,
    And I select 3dprinter_addon_1.3, by pressing the open stl file, the screen opens, and asks me to upload the file openFileDialog1
    I can not find it, where could it be?

    Thanks for your help
