Re: Primer line control direction, Ender 3

You need to edit the cgode commands in your starting script so to do the prime move in the direction you want.

Re: G-Code

In gcode, a line beginning with a semi-colon is a comment line.....this is defined in the gcode standard, etc and as you suggest, the line is ignored by the printer. And S3D creates a batch of comment lines at the beginning of the gcode file that list the date/time the file was created and all of th...

Re: Help find the problem!

….and the wiggly lines on your Benchy could...and I stress could.....be due to you printing perimeters "outside in" as opposed to "inside out".....but a siingle photo is usually never enough to allow a good diagnosis of a problem.

Re: Save Changes

How are you "storing" all of your profiles.....in the processes list box in the main S3D screen, or via the Update Profile and/or Save as New buttons on the FFF Settings pop-up window??? I suspect the former....which means you're not saving anything anywhere....and are in danger of losing the lot! R...

Re: Print preview does not match shape

The "missing" lip is thinner than the extrusion width that you have set up in your settings....and S3D will refuse to print it as a way of advising you that the shape cannot be printed. Obvious, isn't it?? What you need to do is to change the Thin Wall Behaviour in the Advanced tab. Change the Exter...

Re: Transfering Profiles Across SSDs

The fact that profiles are not stored in a way that they can be retrieved by use of file utilities is well documented on the forum. They're held in the registry on Windows....and in a similar sort of place on Macs, etc. equally inaccessible to users! There are a few places you can manually extract p...

Re: Thin Wall Slicing Issue

It's single walled throughout. ……….assuming you mean that the faces are single-sided. If so, then that's your problem. A shape has to be solid to be able to be printed.....unless you're wanting to do "vase mode" printing, and then you'll have to tick the option "Merge all outlines into a single sol...

Re: Master Settings Database - User Populated

I couldn't agree more. Every printer in its environment is different to every other printer. Even one printer can print differently at differing times of the year....different temperature, different humidity, etc., etc. As stated, the most important thing to remember is understanding what the settin...
