For anyone who still owns some of the early generation Replicators, someone has figured out how to make Octoprint work with them.  I've been doing some test prints and everything is working as you would expect.

Solidoodle 2 Pro / Simplify3D Start & End GCODE

I made a few modifications to the default GCODE for the Solidoodle 2 Pro in Simplify3D. It seems to be working ok so far in Octoprint.

Start GCODE

G28 ; home all axes
G1 Z5 F300 ; move platform down 5mm
G1 X145 Y145 F3000 ; move to back right corner
M190 S[bed1_temperature] T1 ;set and wait bed temperature
M109 S[extruder0_temperature] T0; set and wait extruder temperature
G1 Z0.4 ; position nozzle
G92 E0 ; zero extruder
G1 E7 F225 ; extrude anchor
G92 E0 ; zero extruder
G1 X140 Z0.1 E1.0 F1200 ; slow wipe
G1 X135 Z0.25 ; lift

Stop GCODE

M104 S0 T0 ; turn off extruder
M140 S0 T1 ; turn off bed
G1 Z150 F300 ; lower platform to bottom
G28 X0 Y0 ; home X axis and y axis
M84 ; disable motors

Edit: Just noticed that I had listed the Extruder Preheat as M104 which would only set the temp, not wait for it to reach it. Changed to M109.
