Re: Connection error

It should have Nothing to do with connection errors to the net. But, s3d shouldn't have gates to jump through like signing in to use non-cloud based software... Call it my error or a 'Senior moment'. However, not knowing the guts of S3d I posted the only other element of communication in the softwar...

Re: Extrusion Width for Overhangs?

For typical features on the parts I design, I’ve done a bazillion tests to determine the ‘best’ parameters for Overhangs and Curves (especially curved overhangs). I always prefer to avoid using Supports. For my needs, that required designing some useful test parts that represent the challenges on ty...

Re: Auto Configure Setting - PETg?

The process I posted eliminates all stringing on my machines. But, 'yes', it's the biggest challenge so the parts I posted are good example to work with.

Tip! Lower the Hot-End Temp, check the print speed and, MUST use the fan - petg wants to be cooled as soon as it's laid down...

Re: New to PETG - extrusion stops mid print.

I posted my PETG settings ( https://forum.simplify3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=7353 ) - they work absolutely great on my two machines. Perhaps you downloaded it? If not, try it out (extract the settings). I use 'Sun' petg. Regarding the stopping… If you’re using my file, it may include a script to pau...

Re: Newbie question about pausing.

Below is example of what works on my machines. G & M code commands do not work across the full spectrum of printers - if it works, great. If not, dig into the correct codes for your machine/firmware type. This code (shown in bold font) goes into the field at the bottom of the Scripts panel (it is in...

Re: Printing in a loop?

As others said... It's risky counting on the part not adhering strongly enough to cause problems such as belts jumping cogs... a host of problems. Having said that, once your get past that problem, creating Gcode to do what you want is easy. It can be an Ending script or a separate-stand-alone code....

Re: Auto Configure Setting - PETg?

It took a bit of work to get good PETG prints but, I finally got there. Both of my printers are Prusa (built from kits and modified for V6 hot-ends / etc) No more stringing, blobs…etc. Several print parameters dialed-in. If you review the attached files and tweak your printing, you may get good/simi...

Re: Layer Change Script every X Layer

This link should get you started https://forum.simplify3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1959 - there's info on Layer changes... [EDIT] Follow-up: I may as well add the lines I use to pause at specific layer (idea came from the link, above). Code: {REPLACE "; layer" "M117 Layer"} {REPLACE " Z = " " Z="} ; ...
