Re: Paid upgrade For 2019 upcoming Version 5.0

The big thing missing for me in 4.x is color mixing. If 5.0 doesn't include that and I'm outside the 1-year upgrade window when it releases, I'll probably stick with 4.x for a while. Thank you for the feature request. We have sent your idea to our development team to review! This feature was alread...

Re: Ignoring hidden parts when arranging, etc.

You can achieve this by going into your process settings > click select models > deselect the models that you want to hide. I haven't tried it with 4.1.2, but in previous versions, this didn't work for me. I like to make a factory file of all parts and if I only want to print a subset, I've had to ...

Re: Auto Configure Setting - PETg?

PETG tends to ooze more than PLA in my experience, so you may need to add some extra restart distance to avoid a gap at the start of a trace. Also, increasing the amount and/or speed of retraction can help reduce stringing. I've never been able to get rid of all stringing however; it's just the natu...

Re: Send GCode Directly to OctoPrint

Hmmm, I just got to thinking :idea: that on a Mac you can set Folder Actions. An the action code be to scp the file to the OctoPrint server. That way you just save the gcode to that folder on your Mac and it automagically goes to the server. I'll work on it .... Anyone interested :?: I know I'm dig...

Re: Stringing occuring on hollow cylindrical prints?

Circular traces sometimes pull a string along with them as they round the curve. I see that on PETG prints and that's probably what you're seeing. Many times, stringing is due to the nozzle temperature being too high. Try lowering it to 190C and see if the printing improves. Another possibility is i...

Re: 4.1 prints supports when told not to print them

Can you confirm that there aren't any supports on that object in the custom supports tool panel? I know the other object has supports in one area. To work around the issue, I ended up splitting the print into two processes, with support enabled for only that one object. I've used this workaround sev...

Re: BUG: 4.1 prints supports when told not to print them

I just updated to 4.1.2 and this issue still exists. I removed the automatic supports from fours holes. They don't show up in Preview mode, but they're in the generated G-code. I've attached the factory file I'm seeing this with. The part having this issue is the shorter one.

Re: Diamond 3 colour mixing hot end support

Any news about colour blending? Are you referring to mixing or gradient transitions? Mixing (at least with Repetier) is shown here: https://forum.simplify3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=6565 That's a kludge, not a baked-in feature. I'd love to see the ability to define extruders with each having its own...
