Re: Send GCode Directly to OctoPrint

Hmmm, I just got to thinking :idea: that on a Mac you can set Folder Actions. An the action code be to scp the file to the OctoPrint server. That way you just save the gcode to that folder on your Mac and it automagically goes to the server.

I'll work on it .... Anyone interested :?:

Re: Saving profiles questions

I've looked at a .fff file and found the settings that are affected by Quality and Material. My thinking is that if I want to adjust one of these things then I should make or use a different Quality or Material instead of saving as a new Profile. Unfortunately some settings that I would expect to be...

Re: Alternative to ABS

I have been using PET+ from MadeSolid and have been successful with it. Printing temperatures (hotend) are similar to ABS but bed temperatures are much lower. In fact it sticks very strongly to my PEI surface so curling is not an issue. The clear PET+ is working well for one big project I have.

Change infill on a horizontal basis?

I have read how to change infill % based on height above the platform. But is there a way to change infill for parts that stick out horizontally? My model builds best in one particular orientation. Every other that I have tried requires a lot of support. But three parts stick out horizontally that I...

Support for Polygon (PLY) format?

I just found out about a public domain 3D scanned objects database at http://redwood-data.org/3dscan/index.html It looks like a great place to find "stuff" to use in my models. The objects are available in PLY format which seems to be similar to STL. Is there any plan on supporting PLY format?

The surface is not smooth. pic - 2.jpg Pic 4 is detail from Part #2 in the...

Smooth top surface

I'm new to S3D but not to 3D printing in general but I wouldn't get close to calling myself an expert ... :roll: My question has to do with adjusting the top surface of the model. Ideally I would like a smooth water-tight surface. I am actually trying to make a vacuum seal with the top surface but i...

Re: Print out Process Settings

I've just started using S3d so this may be my ignorance but what setting do you use to output the settings into the GCode? Mine only shows the initial and ideal temperature and nothing else.
