    Can I use a chromebook with the cube3 and how?

    I have a cube3 and I've hit a wall. I use a chromebook and therefore do not have access to windows to run the printing software. Without switching from chrome os to windows. How can I get printing using chrome os. I am a complete newbie when it comes to 3d printing and computers so be gentle and go slowly please.

    There should be a mac version. Everything Cubify is still on the server; http://cubify.s3.amazonaws.com

    http://cubify.s3.amazonaws.com/public/cubify_software/installers/mac/cubify_3.0.dmg this is probably what you need. I'm only guessing.

    I was just wondering, because you pointed our new friend, DandySniper, to the Mac versions, so I was, well, surprised.

    I am wondering if the print software would run on Wine (Windows emulator under Linux), I have not tried that to date. I know there was a thread on here about that too.

    DandySniper, are you a programmer of sorts? if so, I have the basic outline of how a file is sent to the Cube, so we could possibly come up with an app that could do it for us. If not, then I will keep poking at it.

    Oh, and I found this:

    you can try to run the cube software on the Crossover app.

    FWIW, I took a shot at installing CubePrint under Wine on Linux Mint a while back. As best I remember, I hit a dead end when it insisted it needed a certain version of Internet Explorer (10, I think). I couldn't get past that.

    Hey John, I think I need to look at that too. I have a linux system floating around -- I will give it a try.
