Unwanted tool change retraction

Using the E3D Toolchanger. I keep seeing unwanted retraction for every tool change. The gcode for the retraction is generated by S3D and NOT by the TFree, Tpre or Tpost gcode. These retractions cause a blob of material every time the newly selected tool extrudes. Anybody know where in S3D this is se...

Re: A serious problem for Tooklchangers

I went back and tried again. This issue is even worse than I thought. It now looks as though S3D randomly picks which tool to select and heatup before the start gcode. No rhyme or reason behind it. But I really gotta ask... WHY THE HECK IS IT STICKING IN THE M104 and M109 COMMANDS BEFORE THE START G...

A serious problem for Tooklchangers

I could not for the life of me figure this out... until I did. I have learned that to get S3D to do the "Additions" and Infill and supports properly across multiple tools I had to put all four extruders/tools in the Extruder list. As such it seems to work OK. BUT!!! Every now and then I would get th...

Extruder 1 Temperature Variable Not Working

WOW!!! The variables are STILL not documented!!! This REALLY SUX!!! Perhaps they are not documented because they are not completed or perhaps they sometimes do NOT WORK!! "extruder0_temperature" returns the temp fine into the gcode file after the object is sliced "extruder1_temperature" returns "T-1"

Is there documentation for the start script gcode????

I am trying painfully to write start gcode for a four extruder system. Single extruder start code contains extruder references that get used to insert the temps entered into the S3D UI into the gcode... (i.e.,extruder0_temperature]. Doing an "extruder3_temperature" DOES NOT WORK. Can someone PLEASE ...

Display in mirror image

It's happened to me twice now with larger objects. I see the object on the screen in a mirrored image. It generates the gcode correctly and it prints correctly but it's visually mirrored. If I load the same file to Cura or another slicer SW the file shows correctly. It does it regardless of S3D vers...

Triangular and Grid Infills work incorrectly!!!

I had never used these two internal infills before, but a special project forced me to look at a different infill approaches so I tried them and WOW! Both these infills are not working correctly!!! Both draw their entire patterns IN THE SAME LAYER and as such the hotend draws right over already extr...

Re: Material Settings is just wrong.

yes.. the fff profile is at the printer profile level and that is the issue. When you have more then 1 kind of printer the profiles pile up! I have a profile for every material for every printer. The menu goes off the screen!

Material Settings is just wrong.

So when I save a new material all that is saved there is the temperature. That is sooo useless! When I change the material EVERTHING pertinent to the material needs to change! Not just temp. For example, TPU needs a slower speed. Nylon needs the cooling fan set at 0% and a faster speed. Etc. The onl...

Re: FFF file location?

Its been awhile for this thread but it needs to be revisited. WHERE ARE THE PROFILES? When we upgrade to a new S3D the profiles are there in the new version this seems to indicate since older versions are retained that the profiles are saved somewhere. Yet when my iMac recently died and I restored m...
