Re: Preview doesn't appear

I would suggest trying to update your graphics drivers. If you have a really old driver, it may be causing the issues. Go to the manufacturer's website manually and check since the auto-update option with the drivers is very commonly wrong. Installing an updated driver for Win 10 will likely fix it.

Re: Printing with 2 Colors

Yes, you need 2 STL files. Once you have those, you can use the dual extrusion wizard to handle everything else. It doesn't get easier than that ;)

Re: Newbie Questions

I use Simplify3D with my flashforge creator pro. It's allowed me to have a lot more control over my prints than the stock software. It's is lightyears ahead of ReplicatorG, so that's what you're using right now, I would strongly suggest upgrading ;) The software has several options that can help wit...

Re: Default Scaling

Read the post 2 above yours. The software already has default scaling options.

Re: Issue with using S3D with a M3d and wrong gcodes

Does it give you a line number or something in the error message so that you know what command is causing it?

Otherwise, perhaps you can compare a gcode file from S3D with one from the other software to look for differences in the commands (specifically, ones that are in S3D, but not M3D's)

Re: Printing time significantly different than build statist

That probably means you have some really slow acceleration settings. But more importantly, please search! This has been asked MANY times before ;)

Re: When to [Update] Profile?

It's pretty much exactly what you said. Your default settings are the base profile. Then you can make changes on top of that using a process (and when you make a change, it will be marked as modified to remind you it is different than the base profile). So you really only want to use the "update pro...

Re: prints slightly to small

Well if you've been installing your own firmware, there plenty of places you can go wrong with that. You need to make sure that all of the firmware configuration values are correct and that you follow the Sailfish installation guide perfectly. I've seen plenty of people make mistakes there that make...

Re: Custom delta printer calibration and bed leveling questi

I have a few deltas and the XYZ machine control panel motions work fine for it. For example, homing and jogging both work fine. Why are you saying those don't work for you? And for adjusting and calibrating the nozzle height, usually the only variable you need to adjust is the height of the nozzle a...
