Re: Updating STL sources in multiple-model factory files?

As another Palette 2 Pro user, I add my vote to this idea.

Re: Cannot align stl's coming out of Fusion360

Thanks for that. I did not know I could save all files with that method. I've been doing them one at a time. They still didn't line up that way though. I found that I had a setting to turn the models 90 degrees on import and that was messing things up. I can now bring in most models and they align. ...

Cannot align stl's coming out of Fusion360

I've read here how to use Align selected model Origins , but my models are not lining up when I use that tool. In Fusion360 they are aligned as shown here: 2019-03-23_23-16-15.jpg I am trying to print the text in a separate color from the main body of the object using Palette 2 Pro, so I need the le...

Cannot print cylinders as cylinders in 4.1

I am trying to print an object I have printed many time before, but 4.1 is changing the circular lines into its own design: anomoly.jpg Those zig zags should not be there. I tried going back to 4.0, but it prints perfect circles by accelerating and decelerating through each 90 degree arc of the circ...

Combine factory files?

I have 4 parts to print. Two are in one factory file and two are in another. Each part has multiple processes and the p[arts are printed sequentially. Is there a way to take the processes from one factory file and use them in another? The multiple processes were all created from one original Profile...

Re: Sequential printing question

More inconsistencies with sequential printing: If I apply two Profiles to a single model, the parts do not print in sequence one whole model at a time. Instead, the first process prints on all models and THEN the second process prints on all models. Thus defeating the main purpose of printing sequen...

Re: Sequential printing question

I ran into a problem with sequential printing. Two things that do not make sense: 1) When I place a raft under an object(s), just the raft prints and then the remaining objects without rafts print, and THEN the objects that have rafts under them print. So why doesn't S3D print the raft and then the ...

Re: Sequential printing question

The answer is that there is one process needed per part if I want to print each part by itself. So, for example, I set up to print 16 parts and so I used the same process template 16 times, but assigned one part to each process. Now each part is printed completely before moving on to print the next ...

Sequential printing question

I've looked for an answer to this but have not found it.

For sequential printing, do I assign one unique process to each model? So that if I want to print 40 small objects I need 40 processes?

Re: Question about using multiple processes

So the answer is that the M500 needed to be on a new line. With that in place, esteps stayed at the E140 I set them to in the first process. Thank yo for the input and help.
