Simplify failed to print a full layer

What would cause Simplify to fail to print a complete layer? In my current job, it didn't finish the bottom layer, but everything else went fine. When I moved the object and printed again, it ran fine. The first print was a copy and mesh mirror. The second print was the same mirrored object, with th...

Re: Steps per mm

When I advance my filament 100mm, it moves about 80. So my step count is wrong. There is a YouTube video on how to set the steps/mm with MatterControl, but I no longer use that and I hoped there was a similar procedure for Simplify. Googling the Simplify site produced a description of the M501 comma...

Re: Steps per mm

Sorry, my printer is a Robo R1. But, there are a million different printers. I was hoping that Simplify might provide an interface to the eeprom.

Steps per mm

I wish to calibrate my printer. The setting I want to adjust is motor steps per millimeter of filament. I found a page that suggests sending M501 in the Communication tab, but my Simplify is constantly updating with an M105 command and I see no reply to the M501.

Re: Get notified when print is done via email

I am switching over from MatterControl, which can send me a text message or email when a print is finished. Is a fabulously useful feature. Has anything been done to add it to Simplify?

STL print missing parts

I'm new to Simplify. I've been using MatterControl. I have a part that prints as drawn in MatterControl, but is lacking a part in Simplify. The missing part is a tiny bead around the top edge. The bead is visible in Simplify in the STL rendering, but does not appear to be visible in the print previe...
