Re: Simplify3D and Makerbot 5th gen

Wow, that really is bloated. And not any more informative than the equivalent gcode. It seems like someone got a bad case of Standard File Format Syndrome. You see this a lot with XML; what used to be a simple easy to read linear text file gets converted to XML, because structure! validation! and th...

Re: New user printing to Mach 3

Hi, Gary. From the questions you're asking, you may find better answers from the reprap community, which is comprised of a lot of people who build and design 3D printers from scratch. This is a slicer forum, and although it is the software you may wish to use, the low level details of how the gcode ...

Re: Feature Request: Profile Adjustments for Filament Contro

Great discovery. When you export the default file, it doesn't export the autoConfigure settings for whatever material/speed you have selected, so make sure you fill those sections out if you want to be able to switch back and forth. Also, if you add any settings to an autoConfigure section, like inf...

Re: v2.0 changes and tutorials

It does not seem to override "Force retraction on layer change", so you should turn that off to prevent retractions.

Re: Version 2.1.0 Custom Profile looses Quality Setting

Me, too, although I think the idea is that quality and material are intended as presets, and once you bake in your settings by exporting it to your own FFF, they no longer make sense to be displayed. What would be nice is if you could actually define an FFF with several sets of settings for each qua...

Vase mode does not override force retract

Vase mode should override the force retraction on layer change setting, as it makes no sense to retract at all in vase mode.

Re: Instructions for adding 250k baud rate support in OS X

Well, just setting the firmware to 250000 and talking to it through Repetier Host works just fine. So no further Mac side drivers are needed. It is only the details with how Simplify3D is connecting that seems to be having issues. You didn't say what board you were trying to connect to, what firmwar...

Re: Feature request: Mac file open .stl file

I concur with the original request, S3D should have the ability to open STL files by double clicking on them. Jim, you can select the application you want to use to open a file, as you explained how to do above. For example, Photoshop and Preview can both open JPG files through double click, even th...

Re: Instructions for adding 250k baud rate support in OS X

I thought this was interesting, but it turns out that boards like the RAMBO do not use the FTDI chipset any more for USB serial and use the ATmega 16u2 instead. This uses the standard USB COM driver, so the specific information for the FTDI chip does not apply.
