Re: printing over usb vs sd card

An SD card will usually be faster than an old computer for the simple reason that the computer can get bogged down doing other things, which can negatively impact the data rate. This may cause sporadic short pauses, which allows ooze to be deposited into blobs and gaps to form when the extruder star...

RepRapFirmware also supports the M104 G-code.

Re: Pause at layer height

Another option is to split the printing process into two at the height where you want to pause. Set the bottom process to have 0 top layers and the top process to have 0 bottom layers and run the processes one at a time. You'll also need to turn off any homing commands in the scripts for the top pro...

Re: Missing Corners

It appears that the STL is comprised of multiple objects. The quickest way to address it is to select "Separate Connected Surfaces" in the Mesh menu. The more involved way is to import the STL into an app like Meshmixer and apply its fixing tools.

Re: Multi processes by layer

Not that I'm aware of, but I would welcome this feature. The profile has the layer heights, so it should be an easy calculation.

Re: Can't Preview G-Code

Sounds like a setting in the software. All my previews come up with the min slider at minimum and the max slider at maximum.

Re: sliced model has gaps

Go to the Mesh menu and select "Separate Connected Surfaces" to see if that fixes it.

Re: I just bought 3d and none of my models load

The supported file types are stl, 3mf, and obj. 3ds files are not supported. That doesn't explain why your obj files won't load. I'd suggest trying to convert them to stl and see what happens. You can convert them online:

Re: Blobs or Zits on layer change

Have you calibrated your extruder? It appears you might have some over-extrusion going on. What happens if you lower the extrusion multiplier? Something else to try if you just want to address the start-of-line blobs is to specify a negative restart distance.
