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

Their way of "selling" software ensures I won't buy their products again without a radical change. Just for example, the way it has to "phone home" over the internet to run is a deal-breaker for me. And last I heard, they were seriously considering moving to a "yearly fee" system, like renting softw...

Re: Output literal double quotes with the REPLACE command?

If you put the following code in a file named ReplaceWithQuotes.BAT, and install the GnuWin sed utility, you should be able to use it as noted in the header comments to work around the {REPLACE...} issue with literal quote characters: @ECHO OFF GOTO Start ********************************************...

Re: Output literal double quotes with the REPLACE command?

The best I've been able to do is use a unique series of characters, install GnuWin sed, and create a batch file to do the substitution. {REPLACE "; Settings Summary" "; Settings Summary DoubleQuotesxDoubleQuotes"} "C:\Users\Don\3D Printing\Temp\DoubleQuotes.BAT" "[output_filepath]" "[output_dir]\[ou...

Re: Output literal double quotes with the REPLACE command?

Surely this is possible, somehow. Post-processing is often used to add Gcode commands, and some of those require double quoted parameters.

Has anyone yet figured out how to include literal double quotes in the REPLACE post-processing construct?

Re: Layer Change Script Tab

I don't think First Layer Width is what you want. My understanding is that First Layer Width will change the spacing between nozzle positions on the first layer as well. That is, the First Layer Height and Width affect nozzle physical location as well as extrusion. This should work, in the Layer Cha...

Re: Global Z offset and "babystepping"

Rethinking, the real question is "Why was I able to babystep -1.20 mm (down) without the nozzle being below the surface of the glass?" My layer height was 0.196 (which is 0.2 times 98% for the first layer).

Global Z offset and "babystepping"

My CR-10S is running Marlin 1.1.7, which has a feature called babystepping. When a print starts, I can double click the console knob on my CR-10S, and then adjust nozzle height real-time. My understanding of babystepping is that when I use it and get a perfect first layer height, I should update the...

Re: information popup window

I'd like a way to change the default width of the sidebar and its columns, or, failing that, the font. Also, for similar reasons, I'd like to be able to change the default height of the Select Processes for Printing dialog and its Process Selection Listview, that comes up when you click Prepare to P...

Re: Placeholders not working

Surely the layer change script has something like a [layer_number] so you can do something like:

M117 Layer [layer_number]

?

Feature req: Warn before deleting processes

I've deleted processes by mistake intending to delete models, because the focus happened to be on the processes area. This shouldn't be so easy to do. I leave it to you to find the best way.
