Flashforge Creator 3

I'm thinking of buying a Flashforge Creator 3. Could anyone confirm whether this printer can be connected to S3D via USB? I know my Flashforge Adventurer 3 doeesn't support USB and can't be used via WiFi.

Thanks.

More Macro Definitions

Version 4 of S3D provided the ability to define 3 Macro's.

Could the developers please consider adding to this number, perhaps to define up to 10 Macro's if not more.

Also, perhaps some thought might be given to being able to nest scripts.

Scripting Nozzle Position

I know that I can script nozzle positions using [current_X_position], [current_Y_position] and [current_Z_position], but is there a way of scripting those values to set a new position? For example, if [current_X_position] returned 50 and I wanted to change the position to [current_X_position] + 75, ...

Re: Filament stops feeding for unknown reason

This problem is resolved. Caused by questionable firmware which for unknown reason stopped feeding filament after a set period. Replaced the firmware and the problem went away.

Filament stops feeding for unknown reason

I have a new printer, an Eryone Thinker S. It has been working well, but in recent days the flow of filament stops part way thru a print - it's as though an M18 E has been issued. This seems to be repeatable, the flow stops part way thru the first layer in the same place. Issuing an M17 E doesn't re...

Setting Z Height

I have an Anycubic I3 Mega which I am adding an IR sensor to in order to calibrate the height of the Z axis. All working well, however the Z home position is 2.5mm above the bed, so I need to lower the Z axis by 2.5mm. Reading up on this subject provides details for using the G92 and M851 gcode. I h...

Re: Printing undersized holes?

You may find the following to be of use: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1712198 These plates provide holes in increasing diameter between 3mm and 25mm. When designing parts which need to accomodate bolts/screws and other physical objects you can easily find what size hole you need in the new desi...

Incorrect Action When Purging Filament

During the startup script I like to purge material by issuing a G1 E25 F300 instruction. However more often than not when S3D executes that command the extruder unloades filament and I end up with several 10's of mm filament missing. Frequently this follows a previous print where the purge operation...

FLSun QQ Problem

I am trying to get my FLSUN QQ printer working with S3D. It's communicating okay, but after a few 10's of seconds it stops moving, showing the following in the message window: READ: echo:busy: paused for user busy: paused for user It doesn't stop moving on each of these messages, but it does eventua...

Hard Reset Issue

When I hit the big red button on the printer control panel it does what is necessary and causes my CR-10 to reboot. Perfect. However after that reboot the start script for any following print causes the filament purge (G1 E25 F300) to go in the wrong direction - it sucks rather than pushes filament....
