[Noisebridge-discuss] Fedora on the 3d printer

The sailfish firmware for makerbot doesn't use straight g-code either so I
guess it doesn't surprise me that the native firmware for flash forge
doesn't use straight g-code.
Do you have to transform the g-code from slic3r to get it working on the
flash forge?
Incidentally I've never used the original flash forge firmware, only
sailfish since they're compatible boards, so I'm a bit curious what the
post processor looks like...
