Re: Pause at Height (NOT LAYER)?

Actually... I think I figured out the problem. It appears that when you have a single object with multiple processes throughout (Process A goes to 5mm height, then process B starts at 5mm height) it tends to screw up the pausing script. At least when I copy that object (and it's multiple processes)...

Re: Pause at Height (NOT LAYER)?

HA! No kidding!... this was just fixed with the latest update (4.1.1)!! WOO! Wow I just downloaded the latest software today and this problem is just... gone. Everything works perfectly now because it counts the first layer of ALL objects on the bed as layer one (instead of layers 1, 2, 3, etc). Aa...

Re: Pause at Height (NOT LAYER)?

Here's a solution that should work to insert pauses at a specific height: If your system doesn't have sed (Windows usually don't) you need that. On my Win10 computer I downloaded a native x64 version from here: https://github.com/mbuilov/sed-windows Then I placed the downloaded executable in a folde...

Re: Pause at Height (NOT LAYER)?

I personally would alter the Gcode at the given layer (height) you want to stop at then place the command to pause, that is what I do, from your example are you creating a script to do this,, if so I think that's too complicated for me.. and I would do two prints. Well, that's basically what this s...

Re: Printing a threaded insert and accepting piece

@Mthompson: I actually think your print looks decent. Printing threads is always a bit tricky, and the ones in your picture should function just fine, even if they look a little rough.

Re: Coooling settings for multiple processes not stored in factory file

This issue is still there in the the new 4.1 version, but the behaviour is now improved, so that even if process 2 contains a setting of 0 for the fan for the first layer, this is not inserted in the g-code (which is good news!). So in essence it appears this is no longer a real issue, even if the f...

Re: Do I need to reload STL files after changes

…... I think that it's important that the factory file is "fixed" so that a known good print configuration remains that. To do otherwise would compromise the biggest benefit of the factory file format. One of the requested feature changes, though, is a simple "refresh" button which would refresh th...

Re: Active Development?

The current version is 4.0.1, but you need to manually download that from the web site, update check from within the application doesn't see it. And there is a version 4.1 coming shortly. It has been promised that information about this new version will be posted this week, so probably today I guess...

Re: Offsets & Print Preview

Indeed, setting Global Offset's to 0 and X-Y Origin Offset to-13.5 and -36.0 took care of it. With the exception that it shows the origin those distances off of the Bed. I can live with that but, what I wanted was to show them off the Bed by only -10 and 5 (and off the Print Area off by 36). I get ...

Re: Offsets & Print Preview

Following up on "Mroek" comments Origin offset tells S3D where the nozzle is in the homed position (related to the bed), so that it can print onto the bed as shown in the preview. If you looked at my posted values, you’d see the X-Y Origin Offsets are set a -10 and 5. This is the Homed Nozzle posit...
