Re: FFF file location?

I agree with changing the storage from registry to file. I have been having tons of issues and it all points back to not being able to store settings correctly in the registry due to security settings. I use HIPS to prevent malware intrusions and this is preventing proper storage into the registry f...

Re: Firmware Export not working as expected

Well it sounds like you have several things going on found it reverted the layer height back to the default of .15mm all on it's own Are you sure you actually updated the profile after you made your previous change? You have to click "Update Profile" if you want to permanently save a change to the ...

Firmware Export not working as expected

I was having strange issues with S3D where it was randomly applying previous settings, for example, I had cooling fans set to 0 for first layer and 70 for 2nd layer but it applied a previous setting of 30 for the second layer. Going back to check settings and they had the 70% for the second layer as...

print finishes but simplify is still sending gcodes

Has anyone else had the print finish completely but Simplify3D is still sending gcode to the printer for up to 45 seconds after the print has finished and all the axis's have homed. I have been trying to figure out why this is happening now and never used to happen. This is on a modified Openbeam Ko...

Re: Machine Control Communication Verbose Filtering

+1 to that!
At very least, have a second check box to filter out the temp monitoring as we can all see the temps in the accessory control of the machine gui

Re: Slicer behavior for thin walled sections

I agree this issue needs to be addressed. I can successfully print thin walls on my Dremel 3D printer with the Dremel printing software which has a nozzle size of 0.4 and uses slic3r as the slicing program. Slic3r correctly adjusts the wall thickness to enable the plastic to print, whether accurate ...

Re: Not all process settings are saving for different materi

But if the material choice changed ALL of the settings, then what would the quality or extruder choices do? Most of the time, you just want the material choice to change some specific settings like temperatures, fan speeds, maybe coasting or retraction settings. Then the quality choice can be respo...

Re: Heatbed indicator in machine control panel

This seems to have fixed itself after uninstalling all the previous versions of S3D that were not automatically removed when I updated to the latest versions. That begs the question as to why the installer doesn't either upgrade the existing install or remove the previous version prior to installing...

Heatbed indicator in machine control panel

Just recently the little red virtual LED that brightens when you turn on the heat bed, has quite lighting up. The heatbed turns on and temp is reported back to S3D and the Viki2 LCD also shows the heatbed icon active and temp rising.. Anybody have an idea why this would happen? It doesn't affect the...

Weird startup behaviour

I have had this happen a few times now.... I power up the printer (using Azteegv5rev3) and wait until I hear the PC find the SD card and populate it in explorer's window. I then hit the connect button (com3 showing by default) and it fails to connect. I hit refresh button on the ports and try connec...
