There are enough ways to create STL files (even a text editor!) so that isn't a problem. Sending G-code to the printer uses a USB-serial adaptor so that should also be doable. But can I do the in-between step of "slicing" the model to convert it to G-code on Win2K? Slic3r has a command-line version, but it complained about missing function AttachConsole in kernel32. Does the function exist in extended kernel? I haven't tried it yet with extended kernel. I setup a Printrbot in my basement so the cats don't destroy it. All my basement PCs run Win2K...

I believe there are python based gcode generators, and python up to 3.3.x or 3.4.x should be working in Windows 2000:
