Re: Incorrect hole sizes

Realizing it's impossible to do in the firmware (you need to be able to read ahead and see if arcs are hollow or not), I gave up and wrote an external script to do arc compensation that will modify the size of inner holes to compensate for extra material on the inside of an arc. So far it's working ...

Re: Request: Scripts/pre-processing of GCode

Doing some desperate googling, it seems I may have found a solution. Was not aware this sort of thing was possible with Simplify3D: http://community.robo3d.com/index.php?threads/simplify3d-octoprint-gcode-direct-to-octoprint-setup.8217/ By installing and using curl, I'm able to send the file to a ph...

[ALREADY ADDED] Scripts/pre-processing of GCode

I bought Simplify3D after using Cura that came with my TAZ5 for a long while. I much prefer the control I have with Simplify3D over Cura, but one feature that I miss like crazy was the ability to write custom Python plugins, so I could do custom processing on my Gcode before it gets sent to the prin...

Re: First layers over infill, adjust print speed.

Oh, odd. I always read that as the speed to print solid infill. Will that also slow the speed for a solid layer over top of supports?

[ALREADY ADDED] First layers over infill, adjust print speed

I've noticed quality issues when printing something like a solid cube. The bottom and sides look great, but when the printer starts to fill in the top of the cube, printing over top of the infill, it's moving at the same speed as the walls printed at, which is causing adhesion issues, especially whe...

Re: Incorrect hole sizes

Just adding to this issue. Been doing some tests with my TAZ5 using a .6mm Volcano Nozzle, ABS. I made a test cube, 20mm x 20mm x 5mm high. Inside this cube I made a 5mm square hole, and next to it a 5mm diameter hole. I purposely set the extruder to over-extrude a bit, and also started a print a li...

Re: Tip of the Day 8- Scripts tab, G-Code

Is there a replacement variable [] for layer height? I like to do a custom priming of the nozzle before a print starts, and as I increase nozzle and layer size, what worked for a .35mm nozzle is not working well for a .8mm E3D Volcano nozzle with a .6mm layer height. I'd prefer not to have to change...

Suppress M105 spamming?

Is there a way to turn off the M105 spamming in the Communication tab? I'm trying to read debug messages, but the software is spamming M105 every 2 seconds, and the scroll jumps back to the bottom each time, making reading the scrollback impossible. I didn't see anything in the options/settings?
