Re: Different priming methods

Yes, but it'd be nice to have it as a configurable option, so I don't have to fiddle around in the scripts each time I want to switch it off for example.

Different priming methods

Hello, I've heard that people started using straight lines along one of the sides of the bed to prime the extruder instead of doing a skirt. Using a skirt can have disadvantages because the plastic quite often does not stick yet (which is why we prime it in the first place) and can be dragged into t...

Re: How to change skirt/brim printing speed

Adjusting the first layer underspeed also changes the skirt speed. "underspeed"? Do you mean the setting "First Layer Speed" in the "Layer" tab? I have that on 50%, but the skirt is still done a lot faster. I'd love to have it slower myself, because I usually have to clean a few strings / the skirt...

I'm looking for exactly the opposite. I have a big STL file with a lot of objects that can be splitted into single objects by using the Mesh -> Separate Connected Surfaces feature. I can usually just print one of these because of a very small print bed, so what I'm looking for is a way to hide all (...

Ignoring hidden parts when arranging, etc.

Is there a way to ignore parts that are not shown (unchecked in the model browser) when arranging parts? I have a big stl file with many different parts, separated into connected surfaces and would like to print one after the other. Having to delete all of them but one or two to be have Simplify3d a...
