Firmware Parameters

Sailfish stores numerous firmware settings within your printer’s EEPROM. All of these parameters may be changed from your computer using ReplicatorG, MakerWare, or MakerBot Desktop. On Replicator style printers, some of these parameters may also be changed from the front panel display described in Chapter 3.

Table 4.1 lists the bulk of the firmware parameters, their default values, and the sections of this manual where information on them may be found.
