I'm following the GnexLab approach.. The've blogged about it here - check out the Mach3 addon link in the left side menu. Because I dont have my ShapeOko yet, I have not been able to do a full circle test, but I already have the addon w/ Slic3r loaded into Mach. My version seems to have some issues, but I think the concept is that you open Mach, run the addon that will take a 3D file, slice it up, produce g-code and allow you to post to Mach to be printed. Looking very promising.

I added your ideas to the wiki - http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/ ... ting_Mach3

Edward, any chance of getting it added to the upgrades in the sidebar, or is that strictly for proven upgrades?
