Re: Flashforge Creator x - Dual Extrusion - doesn't

Nothing to do with makerware. I had exactly the same problem with the s3d 2 and the right extruder when i first got s3d. Rectified it by copying the left profile and manually changing all the gcode from tool 1 to tool 0. With version 3.0 The right profile worked from the s3d profile. But It's back t...

Flashforge Creator x - Dual Extrusion - doesn't

Everything goes according to plan, extruder moves to front left. bed & extruders heat up and then - nothing. I'm pretty sure there's a missing command in the gcode - but as I never managed to get it working with s3d version 2.0 either - I don't know what's missing. Dual printing works fine from make...

Re: Nozzle diameter different than actual extruded filament

IT depends a lot on your filament and also on how accurate the nozzle makers are. I have a machine fitted with 0.4mm and a 0.5 mm nozzles. With pla the 0.4 extrudes at exactly 0.4 while the 0.5 extrudes at 0.55. So This is what you need to set your extrusion width to in s3d. Getting 0.5 from a 0.35 ...

Re: Shopping for a new printer

the flashforge creator & po have abuild volume: 224x150x150 basically 9x6x6 inches - so smaler than requested.

Yes very good machines - although definitelly NOT out of the box 100% simplify 3d compatible.
I'm still trying to figure out which part of the gcode won't let me do dual printing.

Re: Nozzles just collided with clips holding glass

instead of bulldog clips - use thin strips of kapton tape on the corners to attach the additional bed.

no point making your print volume smaller :-)

Re: Where has the list of profiles gone ?

cheers I'll give that a go as soon as I manage to get it to talk to the flashforge lol Some things needed messing with - the profile section didn't. Oh well, if i ever get it working as well as version 2, I'll no doubt be chuffed with the new stuff. At the moment I'm still using the previous version...

Where has the list of profiles gone ?

I have two printers that use different profiles. I usually have both loaded into simplify at the same time. But all I get now is the single profile for my flashforge creator and when i add another process I can't find the list of profiles for different printers. I get you're trying to make things id...

Re: Windows 10

surely changing from window 7 to windows 10 should be considered a major DOWNGRADE, not an upgrade :-)

Re: The ability to select just a part of a model to adjust

no. That wouldn't make sense :-) And you can already do it. The ability to crop a single model to create a new model - if you like. Or to adjust the size or rotation of just a part of a model. But essentially the ability to select parts of a model and just print those. We can sort of do it by select...

Re: keep getting asked for activation code

Got to admit I'm impressed. Easter weekend, got a reply very quickly - reset and now it all works again :-) Plus I think the problem is the fact that when they release a new version it doesn't uninstall the old version. So I ended up activating 4 versions on the same computer. If the uninstaller ask...
