Re: Exclude element mid-print

This is not possible with any printer at this point. However, if you use OctoPrint there are a couple of plugins that do just this. CancelObject uses comment tags in gcode to know which object is which and you can cancel an object on fly. There is also a plugin called ExcludeRegion that is similar b...

Re: Add object specific comments before gcode blocks

Just a bump. Both Slic3r and Cura have versions of this now (at least in developmental versions).

Z-drift in display (linux)

I have an annoying problem of Z-axis drift when working in the display. Any type or rotation (left mouse) leads to a drop in the relative view with respect to the model (i.e. model and build plate begin to rise off the top of the screen). This is not a mouse issue. I have only seen this on linux sys...

Re: Printing issue with Simplify3D 4.0.0

Haven't heard of this, but first guess might be linear advance. Just as a test, add M900 K0 to your start gcode.

Problematic Skirt/Brim behavior with multiple processes

In a multiple process build with one object per process, I've found an odd behavior with the application of skirt/brims. In this example, only the process on the left is defined to have a brim. The process for the object on the right does not. If the objects have completely distinct bounding boxes, ...

Re: How can I sequence bed leveling to be *before* heating the HB and HE?

I don't think you really want to do that, because it makes a lot more sense to level everything when at least the heated bed is at temperature. If you dig around, you'll find quite a few explanations on how to change your starting gcode. Here is the latest one that might be useful: https://forum.sim...

Re: Heating After Calibration?

That's because it still isn't quite right. Try this: G28 ; home all axes G32 ; Auto Calibrate M500 ; create config-override M106 S[fan_speed_pwm] ; fan speed M140 S[bed0_temperature] ; bed temp M190 S[bed0_temperature] ; wait for bed temp M104 S[extruder0_temperature] T0 ; nozzle temp M109 S[extrude...

Re: Heating After Calibration?

Read up on how the scripting works. It was confusing for me at first as well. You have to use the variables like [extruder0_temperature] in order to override.

Re: Heating After Calibration?

If you put the heating commands in the starting script it will override the default M104/109 that get included automatically. Just put the commands as you want them in the start script tab and you are good to go.

Re: Add object specific comments before gcode blocks

Here is what I have worked up so far. Totally bare bones and only works with S3D process comment lines. It is functional, but not really fleshed out yet. https://github.com/paukstelis/Octoprint-Cancelobject I've chosen to call it cancelobject instead of cancelprocess just in case other slicers add o...
