Re: Print stopping when USB Bus changed.

As regards the radio ham Also true here (Oregon) he's not permitted to disrupt signals. But, he recently bought a 1950's era transmitter/rcvr and he doesn't care about neighbors. Sure, I could report him but that brings another dark-side to neighborly conduct... Anyway, stick with sdCard for printi...

Re: Print stopping when USB Bus changed.

Been running on two Mac’s for several years - had same problem until running from sdCard. Power goes out where I live and my neighbor’s ham radio corrupts all wireless signals from TV to WiFi & Bluetooth… Thus, recommend using sdCard.

Re: Connection error

It should have Nothing to do with connection errors to the net. But, s3d shouldn't have gates to jump through like signing in to use non-cloud based software... Call it my error or a 'Senior moment'. However, not knowing the guts of S3d I posted the only other element of communication in the softwar...

Re: Extrusion Width for Overhangs?

For typical features on the parts I design, I’ve done a bazillion tests to determine the ‘best’ parameters for Overhangs and Curves (especially curved overhangs). I always prefer to avoid using Supports. For my needs, that required designing some useful test parts that represent the challenges on ty...

Re: Auto Configure Setting - PETg?

The process I posted eliminates all stringing on my machines. But, 'yes', it's the biggest challenge so the parts I posted are good example to work with.

Re: New to PETG - extrusion stops mid print.

I posted my PETG settings ( https://forum.simplify3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=7353 ) - they work absolutely great on my two machines. Perhaps you downloaded it?
