PrusaSlicer support for Makerbot Machines

I have a Makerbot Z18 that used .makerbot files to print from. I downloaded PrusaSlicer in hopes of there being a better option over the Makerbot Slicer, there was a profile for Makerbot printers that uses sailfish, but after slicing the printer does not recognize the file as it is not a .makerbot, just a normal gcode file. I'm wondering if I am just going about this the wrong way or if Makerbot has truly went away from open source. If anyone knows of another way to slice my models other than using the locked down makerbot slicer please reply to this post. Thanks

Update your printers to use Sailfish then ?  http://www.sailfishfirmware.com/doc/install-installing.html

@neophyl

As far as I understood it, sailfish does not work for „Gen5“ printers as the z18

Hi, is there still any option to combine the z18 makerbot with a prusa slicer?
