Re: Serial disconnects in 4.1.1

I had a similar issue with the release of 4.0 but I resolved all the disconnects by making sure my printer was plugged into the same power bar as my computer so they shared a common ground and haven't had a disconnect since so you may try that. Your issue could be different so no guarantee this will...

Re: Top solid layers for process1, bottom solid layers process2 not printing

Not sure just what it is you are trying to say but it is NOT doing exactly what I want it to do. I want process1 to have 60% infill and to finish with 5 solid top layers plain and simple. I want process2 to start at the top of process1 with 5 solid bottom layers then continue on to finish printing t...

Top solid layers for process1, bottom solid layers process2 not printing

I was attempting to create 2 process for this model https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:664004 The 2 processes was an attempt to create a little heavier bottom portion of the model. These are the settings applied.... Process 1: Layer height: .15mm Bottom layers: 10 Top layers: 5 Infill: 60% Start Prin...

Re: Loading then running g-code file causes 4.1.0 shut-down

Yes, I am experiencing this behavior as well in 4.1 but not previous releases. Also if you click run "Run Selected G-Code" to print something in your library, it prints but the preview screen does not show the model, only the little box bottom right corner that says "Printing....." Trying to print a...

4.10 No preview when printing from library

My first attempt to print with the new 4.10 was a gcode file I had saved from the previous version, 4.01 and opened using the "Preview gcode file" option in the File menu. The file loaded into the workspace ok but the second I clicked "Print over USB", S3D crashed. So instead of previewing the gcode...

Is there a variable for actual print time

Does anybody know if there is a variable that holds the actual print time that is displayed in the console/communications tab when the print is complete? It appears to be the actual clocked print time and would be nice to send that to the LCD at the end of a print. I sometimes let a print go thru th...

Support limitation on Delta's

I have noticed that in order to use the auto level feature of S3D, a cylindrical print bed of 250mm needs us to entered as a 250 x .707 = 176.75 as the X-Axis, Y-Axis in the machine's build volume on the machine tab of the options menu. This allows auto level to function without probing outside of t...

Live preview tracking not working correctly

I have noticed that since installing 4.0.1, the live tracking has issues. If you move the Max layer slider to check how many layers away you are to a specific spot higher up in the model then click the Live preview tracking box to get back to the live display, the layer displayed is always between 5...

Re: Graphics issue with 4.0.1

I am seeing this issue as well. Also, before slicing the model, while it is loaded into the GUI, if I click and hold the mouse on the model and move left/right to spin the model, the virtual build plate and model slowly climbs up the GUI's screen. This has never happened in previous versions. A coup...

Re: reversing direction on outline of small cylinder

I know exactly what you mean.... If I print a 20x20x10 cube with 2 perimeters and 0% infill, 3 bottom, 3 top solid layers, the print head moves in one direction only while building the walls BUT if I use the exact same settings on a cylinder shaped model, then the print head reverses direction for e...
