But after changing my heatbed control (i have marlin based machines) in the firmware, from bangbang control to calibrated PID con...

Re: Print time estimates way off.

I did search before posting and none of the threads had any info in them. Just people saying the estimates were way off. Maybe you never noticed this thread. https://forum.simplify3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3435 A look at the attached file from a spreadsheet should give you some idea as to why esti...

Re: 1 mm walls

I have had success printing 1mm walls with a .35 nozzle where my normal extrusion width is set to 0.40 and I have changed the extrusion width to 0.33.

Re: G-Code Preview not working

I think I have discovered the cause of the problem I was having previewing G-Code files. It occurs when exiting preview mode after having selected preview by layer. If I restart the program, load a model and then go to preview, and choose preview by line before exiting then everything operates as ex...

Re: Repair Version 3.0 Profile Management

I'll second that.

I have always saved my profiles to a location of my choice that is regularly backed up.

Re: G-Code Preview not working

I am able to recall and preview a file with 8,088,730 lines of code without any problems in v2.2.2 but am unable to preview a file with 629 lines of...

G-Code Preview not working

I am unable to preview a gcode file since upgrading to version 3.0.0 & 3.0.1. This occurs when selecting Preview G-Code File... from File menu. The program puts up a message "Simplify 3D.exe has stopped working" "Close the program" as soon as a gcode file is selected. No problems using 2.2.2 which I...
