Re: mirror ignoring supports?

I just ran into this a few days ago and I'd have to consider it a bug because the non-mirrored supports are useless.

Re: Version 5 Announcement

4.1 is not junk, but it's not without its issues. I occasionally have to quit and relaunch when parts of the object display start disappearing. It also tends to not honor all custom support removals, requiring separate processes to work around it.

Re: Feature Request: Linear Advance

RepRapFirmware calls it Extruder Pressure Advance. The G-code is M572 Sxx, where xx is the advance time in seconds.

Re: Need help modifying a factory file change STL without changing the factory file

I would agree for process association, but when it comes to support settings and the like, you'd need some significant AI, e.g. to figure out where a support should be placed when the shape has changed. If you only care about automatic supports, then that would be doable, but custom supports are ano...

Re: Design Software?

IMO, simple = mostly useless. I use Fusion 360 and while there was a significant learning curve, I find that I can whip out designs pretty quickly now. It's all about getting into the mindset of the program you're using. There are plenty of videos available too on various features.

Re: Color mixing

I’m actually wanting dynamic color mixing, similar to what Voxelizer supports. I use the static mixing, but it’s really only useful if you have one model per “extruder”.

Re: What am I doing wrong?

Looks like a serious lack of adhesion to me. Without knowing the material you're using or the temperature you're printing at, I couldn't even take a guess as to the cause. Please save a factory file and upload it here in addition to telling us what the material is.

Re: Stringing and inconsistent layers

FWIW, on my M3D Crane Quad, I use 5mm retraction distance with a 5400mm/min retraction speed. I don't use coast and I don't see any artifacts that would require it. The stringing I do get is typically on the first layer (due to the higher temp, which I'm happy to deal with) and at the very end of th...

Re: Stringing and inconsistent layers

That's a pretty high nozzle temp, even for PETG. I've never printed over 245 and my current filament seems to be happy with 240 for the first layer and 225 for subsequent layers. I would first try lowering the temp to see how low you can go and still get good layer adhesion. Another possible culprit...
