MacBook Pro interface hep?

Help!!

I've had my Boxzy for a month now but still no interface software for the mac. I don't even know if this thing works. I am a real newcomer to all this 3D/CNC stuff so I need something a newbie can handle and understand. Help? Please!!

There are posts on http://boxzyunofficial.forumchatter.com/... describing using pronterface and inkscape, as well as a guide here on setting up octoprint on a raspberrry pi. I also am waiting for mac software but am using an old windows laptop to run the boxzy. Something to keep in mind is whether or not you want to have your macbook tied up to boxzy while it runs a multi hour print. There is a lot of information to be gleaned from this site and from the unofficial forum. For what it's worth I am a newbie myself. The internet is your friend.

I too have a macbook pro that i plan on using and was going to install Parallels for mac to have a virtual windows machine. i got it cheap as an add on item from OWC when i ordered a drive upgrade kit (i think it was $30

but i think the option to add Parallels to your order appears in your cart at checkout when you order anything.

I will let you know how it goes...
