Github Apple II Repositories

Eventhough this has been around for sometime,
I thought I would start a topic on the above as there
seems to be alot on offer on this site. There is
aload of stuff to be found for the Apple II and emulators.

There is source code, disk tools, emulators written in
various languages and system disks.

It won't all be for the Apple but you can look at other code as well.

Here is what I have found so far. It is not meant to be a complete
list so if you know of any others please add.

Enjoy!

Setting up Cura and OctoPrint for the Mini Fabrikator (Tiny Boy)

I recently bought a Mini Fabrikator (TinyBoy) on the advice of Ex-parrot.

The instructions describe how to set the printer up with Repetier-Host. Ex-parrot uses Octoprint. Print time can take hours, so I decided to use Octoprint as well, installed on a Raspberry Pi, so that my MacBook won't be tied down while printing.

I'm using the latest version of Octoprint (1.2.5). I tried installing the latest version of Cura (15.06.03), but the option for non-Ultimaker printers seems to have been removed, so downgraded to 15.04.2, which is working well.

Below are screenshots of the settings which Ex-parrot recommended to me. I've done about a half dozen prints so far and haven't felt the need to make any changes. Comments with suggested tweaks are welcome.

I'm going to break this guide up into a few sections - symptom charts, what parts work in what machines, and whether it's worth doing the work yourself.
