Re: Will there ever be any updates?

Don't be too hard on Jake. He's doing his best to help with day to day problems, and is clearly under a gag order from the higher-ups. "A fish rots from the head..." The slipped schedules, empty promises and appalling lack of communication is entirely a management problem.

Re: "Choose Start Point Closest to Specific Location" HOW?

There may be a way to get a more accurate result, but it's usually not necessary. Most of the time you use this feature so the "seam" is parked at a corner where it won't show. The grid on my bed is marked off in 25 mm increments. Unless you need an absolutely precise location, you can est...

Re: OK, Time to Start Yet Another "Where is Version 5? " Thread

I am now using PrusaSlicer quite a bit, but it is missing a lot of nice features that S3D has. The S3D control panel is still what I use to change filaments, and the ability to set a start location with coordinates is another. It's also much easier to print a series of test articles, each with a sli...

Re: Loose seams. Missing part

I've had issues with .STL files from Sketchup. They look OK, but they don't slice well. I'm not sure if some of the "repair" programs available will help or not.

Re: Simplify 3D- One computer/ Two MakerGear M2's

I only have a single M2, but ANYTIME anything messes with the ports, the connection goes down. I only print using SD cards, with the printer disconnected from the computer. I've lost too many prints when Microsoft decides to mess with the USB ports in the middle of a print, even when I'm printing fr...

Re: Extruder 2, wrong direction

I'd ask on the MakerGear forum. That's very odd.

Re: Ironing

What's odd is that they just posted an article in their Blog 5 days ago on making a sprinkler: https://www.simplify3d.com/3d-printing-the-perfect-sprinkler/ This does not strike me as the sort of thing a dying company would bother with. I also sent a bug report to Tech Support a couple weeks back, a...

Re: Gaps in Perimeters (Again)

I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I made a grooved roller to use the MakerGear extruder with TPU: http://forum.makergear.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=6724&start=10#p36804 Thanks for the tip on 3DFuel's PLA. Their PLA Pro is about 50% more expensive than eSun. Given that I don't have issue...

Re: Gaps in Perimeters (Again)

I'm using Prusa now, due to this one issue. My MG2E is stock, with the factory firmware. The printed extruder housing does wear over time, but I've printed spares. The next time I replace one, I think I will drill it out and install a brass sleeve where the filament wears. I've actually been very pl...
