Save Toolpaths to Disk (v3.1.0) always saves with .gcode ext

I've noticed in the latest version that if I try to save my gcode with a ".g" extension, S3D always saves it with the ".gcode" extension....It did not always work like this...

Is this simply a bug? If so can it be filed for fixing?

Thanks!!

Re: Long (24hr+) print from SD stops, incomplete

I need S3D to initiate the print job on my M2...

I've been able to start the process and pull the USB cable, so I'm ruling out S3D....just waiting for the job to finish!

Long (24hr+) print from SD stops, incomplete

I'm trying to figure out what is happening, and am hoping someone can assist... I'm running a 24hr+ print from SD using S3D (latest and previous versions both failed) and the print job stops before completion. It seems that with the latest version of S3D, I got a bit further (not sure if there is re...

Re: S3D Machine Control Issue with M2

As it turns out the USB cable seems to have gone bad! I replaced the USB cable and everything is running again!

S3D Machine Control Issue with M2

I've encountered an issue tonight with S3d's Machine Control Panel and my M2...This previously worked, and I'm not sure what is wrong... The Machine control panel connects to my Makergear M2, however I am unable to control it. I cannot use the controls. I cannot turn on the extruders, I'm unable to ...

Re: Dual Extrusion 2 Different filaments, 2 separate objects

So are you saying I should modify the gcode before sending to my printer? At the point when you select both processes to print, they already have their start code... ...but this is interesting because I assume S3D is stripping off the startup code from the second extruder when selecting multiple pro...

Re: Dual Extrusion 2 Different filaments, 2 separate objects

The Wizard expects the same type of filament for both extruders, so this doesn't do what I am looking for either.... I'd like to print an object with the left extruder in PLA and an object in the right extruder in PETG. I don't need them to print simultaneously, but would like them both be printed i...

Re: Dual Extrusion 2 Different filaments, 2 separate objects

I tried using 2 processes, but what I notice is that the 2nd extruder never gets primed and then doesn't really print properly.... So two processes seems like it would work but it doesn't seem to setup the extruders properly...The tool0 extruder gets primed in the beginning but that is it. I haven't...

Dual Extrusion 2 Different filaments, 2 separate objects

I've been trying to figure out if it is possible to use my dual extrusion (Makergear M2) which is using PETG and PLA to print 2 separate items during the same print job. In other words, I'd like to print a calibration square from each extruder during the same print job. Tool-0 is PLA , Tool-1 is PET...
