Repetier > RepRapFirmware conversion| Hatchbox Alpha



  • I purchased two Duet2 WIfi boards from Printed Solid to replace the boards in a couple Hatchbox Alpha printers.

    Is there an easy way to convert a Repetier config into a Duet RepRapFirmware Configuration?

    I exported my default configuration settings via Repetier Server and I have a copy of their firmware config that I got from their support for reference. I am aware of the RepRapFirmware Configurator and Delta Calibration Wiki.

    I just wanted to check to see if there is an easier way before I manually enter all the settings since I have 2 printers to setup.

    We don't have a tool for converting a Repetier configuration. Is there a standard way to export Repetier settings? if so then we could consider writing such a tool.



  • There is an online configurator tool for Repetier, which generates a json file, along with the .h files. If modifications are made using this tool (by uploading back the json file), then the json remains up-to-date. But if people modify .h files, then the json file is out-of-sync...

    Like the RepRapFirmware configurator then, although the json file format will be different. In theory it would be possible to do a partial translation between them.



  • @dc42 Thanks for the reply. @fma is right. Some kind of .json translation app would come in handy for people wanting to move away from Repetier.
