Re: Coast at end, what does it actually do ?

So theoretically, we printed the exact same part using the exact same settings (our photo was default PLA, Medium quality, no coast). We have also printed plenty of those using the stock MakerGear black PLA and get the same results. So really all that's left at this point is machine or material vari...

Re: The last

Have you tried printing that part using the standard settings that come with the software? We had some spare time on a few of the printers over the weekend, so I went ahead and printed the part your are having trouble with on a few of our machines. I only used the exact stock settings with stock fil...

Re: No x or y axis data in gcode for layer 2+

The Make Magazine torture test can be challenging so you definitely have the right idea dialing in your settings on some simplified parts first! If you want to do a single wall print, just use an STL file like this one ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:68445 ) and set your infill percentage to 0% a...

Re: I like this package but need some help...

Hey there! Glad you're enjoying the software so far! Let me see if I can help answer a few of these questions. 1) The output path for gcode and x3g files is actually saved each time you browse to a new path.

Re: Coast at end, what does it actually do ?

Hey there! Glad you've been getting some great quality prints using Creator and welcome to the boards! While the software comes with some very intelligent presets, it can also be very easy to make a few minor changes that significantly impact print quality. You probably have a much better chance at ...

Re: No x or y axis data in gcode for layer 2+

Hey Jim, I have a feeling the problem is that your extrusion width is greater than the thin 0.5mm walls of the part. For example, if your extrusion width is 0.6mm, the software would look at this scenario and say that "I have a wall that is only 0.5mm thick, but I am configured to use a 0.6mm extrus...
