Re: Gcode previews out of memory or slow

Thanks for the reply. I appreciate the quick and informative response. The machine isn't all that - it's an ancient i7 quad core, but it is stuffed with memory and a Quadro that someone sold me for peanuts. Don't be too jealous ;) I will say that it's better to have a slower machine with gobs of mem...

Gcode previews out of memory or slow

This is for Windows, version 1.1.0. Symptom: loading the gcode that Creator produces from the attached STL file either makes the preview UI extremely unresponsive, or results in a low memory error (which suggests reverting to low detail). How to reproduce: load two copies of the attached STL file, a...

Re: Feature Requests

CM - have you already found the keyboard/mouse combinations for positioning a model on the table? Your post makes it sound like you might not have stumbled onto those yet... Have a look at the FAQs ( http://www.simplify3d.com/support/#FAQs ), under the section How Do I Move, Rotate, and Scale My 3D...

Re: Feature Requests

I'd like to see some clarification on the request for the hoops thing, because it may be my old eyes, but I'm not seeing the difference between the first two pictures. Paul Hey Paul- phpBB munged my post. The blue pics (repeated, it seems) are what I think is a desirable hoop; the green (at the bot...

Feature Requests

Since it looks like Creator is getting to the point where I can consider dropping my other tools, I'd like to make a whole lot of feature requests... perhaps others can weigh in if they think that they have merit or not. 3D Navigation Can we have an option to either have Creator follow CAD standards...

First Creator success

FInally figured out the issues of thin features, and I'm printing my first (what appears will be) successful print with Creator. Some observations: + My printer runs more quietly with Creator output. The steppers don't "grind" - much, much more quiet. + My infill is nicer with Creator. Same printer,...

Re: Ideal Fan Control Settings

I like the way that Slic3r does it - you set the min, the max, and it automatically figures out what you need. Plus there's an option to keep it at a given speed all the time. Also, and this is important for M2 owners, at least earlier ones - please "blip" the fan to 100% and then throttle it down t...

Re: Slicing error? Gcode missing some features/details

I appreciate the response on this. The thin feature (the support material) was designed for Slic3r's wall width for the model's layer height, at the time, which was .37 mm. It's definitely greater than the nozzle width, but apparently not as wide as Creator's minimum wall width. Changing it to .39mm...

Re: Slicing error? Gcode missing some features/details

Problem still exits in 1.0.4. I'd really love to get some feedback!

Re: Bug reports: some helpful suggestios

Ah. Didn't see the size limitation message before, or it didn't appear. Attachments limited to 256k. See below for images from an earlier attempt to file a possible bug report - it'll be a good test. Preview is only showing one image, but hopefully both show up. bug_report_cm1.png bug_report_cm2.png
