Re: Material Shrinkage/Expansion Import Profiles

I'd consider any X-Y error less than 0.1mm pretty darned accurate; Z error has the potential to be higher because it all depends on how well you calibrated the bed height. FDM printers aren't designed for extremely high precision; an SLA printer will give you that. According to my calculations, the ...

Re: Select Models Bug

If you're just trying to print multiple copies of an object, it's better to use the Duplicate function (Ctrl-D on Windows, Command-D on Mac) than to import it multiple times. Each copy gets assigned a unique suffix that way.

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.

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
