Re: Paid upgrade For 2020 upcoming Version 5.0

The silence is indeed deafening. Transparency and setting clear customer expectations - even if there is a significant delay - is always a good thing. I for one am very frustrated with the management of materials. There are plenty of options in v4 but optimising them across print qualities is a sham...

Material-specific cooling and other parameter?

Is there any documentation that shows what parameters can be included under the <autoConfigureMaterial> XML node? When using a dual extruder with very different materials, you need to have bridging parameters and cooling set by material. <fanSpeed> <setpoint layer="1" speed="0"/> <setpoint layer="2"...

[ADDED] Colour tool in preview to show which extruder in use

There is no way to tell whether you have correctly allocated extruders in the preview - that I can see. (Advice if I have this wrong)

Setting a different colour to the tool preview (which is in any case selectably viewable) would be an immense help...

Dual extrusion print quality problems...

Dear Forum, I am using a Replicator 2X and find S3D wonderful - for single extruder printing. I am finding however, that in dual extruder mode I am getting very poor prints. The reason is that the extruders pause while remaining in place on the print before changing. This is presumably for retractio...
