The first version of ProfileMaker was released on 8/2/2011 and optimized for stepper-based extruders and Skeinforge 35 bundled with ReplicatorG 24. Since then the configuration settings for Skeinforge have been renamed and moved around. If you can find the new spots, these settings should still work for you.

Update: 7/13/2012: It has come to my attention that Skeinforge has moved some settings around since I wrote this more than a year ago. The values are still good and should still give you a good quality print – but you’ll have to do a little extra legwork to find the proper place for them. If you want to help out by sending me an e-mail suggesting how I can update this, I’d be grateful.
Update 1/21/2012: I broke some things while trying to fix other things. I believe I’ve now fixed all the those things. :)
Update 1/20/2012: Okay! I got mixed responses to those changes! I’ve changed things again!
Update 1/13/2012: I’ve simplified the interface. I hope you like it!
Update 8/1/2011: I’m still e-mailing my web host trying to get to the bottom of this website’s high resource usage. I’ve gotten the resources down somewhat and will start to re-enable features one-by-one, starting with ProfileMaker.
Update 7/19/2011: ProfileMaker has been disabled for a few days and I’m still tweaking my server. In the meantime, definitely try out Dave Durant’s Profilinator. ProfileMaker uses the exact same math as in Dave’s program.
Update 7/8/2011: Okay, I’m going to try fully disabling ProfileMaker.
Update 7/5/2011: I’m going to try just disabling the complete profile generation and e-mail feature and see if that reduces the server load. If enough people comment saying that they miss that feature, I’ll find a way to bring it back.
Welcome to ProfileMaker
v2.0! v3.0! [Updated 4/8/11] This is a Skeinforge setting generator based on Dave’s Profileinator. Right now it will only work for a MakerBot MK6 or other stepper extruder, but I’m working on a DC motor version1 . The outputs are intended for Skeinforge 35 bundled with ReplicatorG 24. Poke around, kick the tires, and try out a new profile! It has the ability to e-mail you a completed profile, if you wish. Be sure and check your spam folder for the e-mail if you use this option.
