  1. Hey,
    I would love to give silkworm a run. I am the Fabrication Lab manager for Hong Kong University and we will be getting a makerbot soon.
    I have a small project designing a lamp and fabricating it using makerbot, and would like to test your plugin for my project, I’ll send you pictures of the finished object once I am done with it.

    1. Hi Riyad,

      Sounds great! Let us know how it goes. At the moment Silkworm has been written with Rep Rap firmware in mind, and while there are only minor differences with GCode prepared for Makerbots, you may want to be aware of this when sending to print and watch for any suspicious behavior. If you have any specific queries feel free to email us.

  2. Hello my name is Shawn I have been tinkering with 3d printers for about two years, started with a printrbot from my garage. I want to expand 3dprinting to the students at my local highschool

  3. Hi
    I’m a french student in architecture school in Grenoble. We are going to try 3D printing with our ABB robotic arm, and your plugin look great. But i can’t download it error 401 from dropbox.
    Can you please fix it ?

  4. Hello,

    The link to Dropbox is not working. I downloaded the version on Food4Rhino instead, but this appears to be an old version. Please let me know how I can access the newer version.

  5. Silkworm looks awesome! Can’t wait to try it.

    I’m having an issue loading it. I’ve placed the .gha in components and unblocked.
    Generates the following IO messages on opening the solid slicing definition.

    Plugin version: 0.9.0076
    Archive file written with older version: 0.9.0014
    (7x) Input parameter chunk is missing. Archive is corrupt.

    1. Hi Kyle, sorry I just noticed the comment, did you manage to make it work after that? We did the current realease of Silkworm a while back but it should still work…

    1. Very sorry Vong – Please try again now – We’ve been moving things around as we’re planning a new release

  6. Hi guys,
    I have a few 3D printed space filling doodles to play with this semester. Thanks for sharing your work. Would be happy to give you some feedbacks.

    All the best from across the Channel

  7. Hi,
    I am a student in Staedelschule in Frankfurt. Could you please help me with setting up silkworm and Ultimaker ? It seems that ultimaker doesnΒ΄t read file from grasshopper
    Thank You

    1. Hi Alessandro, I think it is fixed now. Please can you try again? Just write your email and it should send you a link to the download folder (i’ve just tested it).

  8. Hi Sir, this is Kam. I’m very interesting at your project and wonder how can I install your Silkworm in Sli3r.
    Hope could get your reply soon.
    Thanks a lot!

    1. Hi Kam, Silkworm only works with Grasshopper. It outputs Gcode which can be sent to the printers directly through an SD card…

  9. I’m fairly new to grasshopper and was excited to find Silkworm because there are things I want to do with 3D printing (especially ceramic printing) that are not possible on any of the slicers I use (slic3r, simplify3d, cura). But I haven’t managed to get Silkworm to work yet, and I’m getting the sense that it might not be an active project anymore. I would contribute to its development myself if I had programming skills to offer, but alas, I do not.

    Does anyone have plans to create a new version?

    1. Hello Colby, the current version should still work, have you tried to download it and some of the example files? It is hard to find the time to work on the project as it is a free plugin, any help through donation would be great πŸ™‚

  10. Hi,
    same problem, no email with download link received.

    Check for an email from us. Click here to send a link to AABwxMQQOCXuCernyhXcLQ69a?dl=0 to that email address.


  11. Hello,
    I am trying to download the plugin but came up with an error:
    “This file is protected. You need to enter an email address to gain access. Please contact us if this is unexpected. Back to homepage.”
    Tells me to contact you if this was unexpected. Any thoughts?


    1. Hello Sam,
      Thanks for your comment. Please can you try again? I’ve updated the download link.
      Hope it will work, please feel free to donate if you think the tool is great πŸ™‚

  12. Hi
    Good job,guys. Silkworm looks awsome.
    I am a designer from 3d printing company “zbot”, I would to try the plugin for detal machine.
    But I got some problem, no email with download link received.


    1. Hello Kenny – I’ve just fixed the link – please can you try again with same email and let me know? It works on my side.

  13. Hello,

    I am wondering if it is possible to use silkworm to generate G-code for a Shopbot–I have used Grasshopper to create an algorithm which guides a paint brush to paint shapes, periodically dipping it in a paint can (this 3d action is what I needed grasshopper for). I would like to generate the GCODE for the toolpath I have created and was wondering if Silkworm could do the job. I’ve downloaded it and plugged in all my geometry into the component which generates GCODE, but I am missing the “settings” component. If I am using a 3-axis CNC SHOPBOT, what do I put in for the settings? Thank you!

    1. Hello Max – Silkworm generates E-Values based on the amount of plastic to extrude. Not sure how CNC define the rotation of the drill, speed..etc It might be quite different? The only similarity might be the x,y,z commands? We need your help there πŸ™‚ Arthur

  14. Hi Silkworm Team.
    I’d like to give the tool a try but your download link that I received via email isn’t working. I get the following error:
    “This file is protected. You need to enter an email address to gain access. Please contact us if this is unexpected.”
    Could you please look into this?

  15. Hi i am an architecture student with an interest in digi-fab/ 3d printing.
    I would like to use the pancakebot by generating g-code thru grasshopper, has anyone tried this with silkwork?


    1. Hi Andrew – As long as you are using Gcode to send prints you can use silkworm, all you need is the right settings formats which you can get from Slicer.

  16. Hi!
    As with earlier comments I got the message “This file is protected. You need to enter an email address to gain access. Please contact us if this is unexpected. Back to homepage.”
    Is it possible to fix the link?

    Kind regards,

    1. Hello Otto – I’ve just updated and tested the download page, please type your email again and you should receive a link to the dropbox folder πŸ™‚ If not please just email me. Arthur

  17. Hi,

    IΒ΄m very interested in using the plugin. Unfortunately, donΒ΄t receive a link after entering my email address.
    Could anyone help?

    Thank you and best regards

  18. Hi,

    I’ve just downloaded Silkworm, and I’m trying to get started with the spiral definition. I have downloaded Slic3r and exported my settings with a .ini file. When I try to load it into the Load Settings Component, nothing happens. There is no output from this component. I have tried loading in the ConfigForPrusaMendel.ini file, but it is also not recognized. Please direct me how to fix this problem. Thanks.
