Hello guys, just got done installing Ramps 1.4 and everything working the way I should (I am sure). But I am facing weird problem with Inkscape extension installation. I am following every step as Turnkey Tyranny’s Gcode Exporter plugin. Tried on two different win7 machines, and a win 8.1 tab, but its just not happening. Issue is I simply dont see the extension under Extension > Export > . I have tried both 32 and 64 bit versions. Tried both pre-compiled and manual install Python. But when i run Inkscape the plugin is not there.

Does any one know what is that am I doing wrong? What am I missing? Really frustrated after setting all the hardware up and darn software not creating a g-code file to do maiden flight. aaaahhhhhhh :confused:

Great! installed Python2.7 and guess wht “npm installed” worked with no errors except following two lines: and back to prompt.

npm WARN package.json reprapweb@ No repository field.
npm WARN package.json reprapweb@ No license field.

Neet to find OTG cable real quick to connect Mega/Ramps to this tiny fella! Very exiting

Instead of downloading whole zipped folder and then extracting files form there to copy them to extension folder, I Right-Clicked and Save File as to extension. So the .py and .inx file had some extra information causing it not to work.
