Re: flashforge guider 2s

Not sure if you can. Never tried on mine.
What I would do though is load Flashprint and get it to connect then you at least know it works.
The drivers installed by Flashprint may work for S3D.

Re: First layer issue after 4.1.2 update

Question. Let's say I am using an extrusion multiplier of 0.93 and want to use your method. How are you calculating what % to use? With M221 set to 100 does that mean it will extruse exatly what the slicer tells it or the 0.93 I am using? Consequently, would a 135% mean 135% of the 0.93 I has set? ...

Re: First layer issue after 4.1.2 update

Since I really don't like messing with global offsets, I added the following post-processing instructions to my S3D process instead to use the GCode M221 instruction to alter the extrusion factor for layer 1. Posting here in case it helps someone else. {REPLACE "; layer 1," "M221 S135\n; layer 1,"}...

Took me quite a while to "discover" the place on bed and Ctrl L deal!

Re: How does solid model orientation dropped to S3D relate to its orientation in Fusion360?

Open your model in Fusion and at the upper right corner select "bottom" on the viewing cube and that will show you and be the surface that is placed on the bed in the slicer.
If you want a different surface to go to the bed in the slicer then you will need to change the orientation in Fusion.

Re: Pla printed part question

This is not unusual for FDM type printed parts. If you are designing the part you will need to make the hole slightly larger than the actual size needed. For smaller holes I may add about .2mm to the hole size but usually I will have to drill them out a bit for a good fit. The smaller the hole the m...

Re: Automatic plane sensing

Use Ctrl + L then click the surface to place on the bed also works.

Re: Can't see Mapped NAS Network drives

I can see mapped drives ok.
Maybe a firewall, anti-virus or another app is blocking S3D?

Re: Inadequate release notes....

I am dreading installing it since you can keep few of them in parallel you can install it in separate directory and then use the older version if new one does not properly work. you just want to first have backup / export of all your profiles "for just in case" Yes, you definitely want to have your...
