Re: Print pausing at random intervals

Re: Automatic Pause Function

There is not. I brought this up with Clayton in email recently and pointed out the functionality in Repetier Host and Octoprint. He agreed it would be a good idea and would send it along to the developers.

Re: Wider extrusion width for first layer...

If you do not want a first layer flange, you need to have first layer height at 100% so that it prints like any other layer. I've checked the gcode, and changing the first layer height does not adjust the extrusion speed to match the layer height. That is, if you print a first layer at 50% of .20mm,...

Re: Gaps between outer wall and infill

No, the factory file, which will be your model and the FFF all rolled up into one. Under the file menu, there should be a save as factory file option.

Re: Documentation

Upload to SD is not a good thing, but Print from SD is a great thing. No communications-induced slowdowns on curved arcs with lots of segments. No possibility of stalling the print when one of your USB external drives decides it wants to spin up.
