Re: mcp - position readout

My delta printer is the same way. Did you set the homing direction for the Z-axis in S3D correctly (it's on the G-Code tab). I set mine to max for the Z and the readout is correct when I home the Z axis. So I would check and make sure you set the direction correctly cool, that was part of the probl...

Re: pause / resume from the mcp, reading pause from fw..

If you are printing over USB and you press pause, it will stop sending commands to the printer. There may be a few left in the buffer on the firmware, but it should stop after a few seconds. so it just stops sending and does nothing else, on resume it continues where it stopped? I'm not sure how yo...

mcp - position readout

after homing mcp will set position readout to 0,0,0 which is not always correct ... for e.g. on my machine I home Z on "z_max" and not on "z_min" so after homing my Z is not 0 but 136 or 200 or 500 or 2000000 depending on my machine .. ideally you can use M114 to read the last known position of the ...

Hi, what does "exactly" pause button does on the machine control panel .. does it just stop sending G-code (and on resume continue from where it stopped) or after pause it can send some codes (and some codes after resume) ? asking because I setup pause/resume buttons on a printer and printer properl...

Re: Out of ideas - print surface issue

this cube has nothing to do with tuggin issue .. but that white thingy, definetely ... and looking at your setup, does not look like tuggin is the issue but since effect is the same I'd say its something related for sure .. this overextrusion means either your firmware is not calibrated ok or someth...

Re: Start /End-points avoid corners

++ I sometimes really want to start/stop at corners and sometimes really don't want :D so a switch "prefer start/stop at corner" and "never start/stop at corner" would be cool for me :D what I noticed s3d wrt corners that's bugging me big time is - print a 1wall thick extruded square, lets say corne...

Re: Out of ideas - print surface issue

the images are pretty low res to be able to say for sure but that "stone" to me looks like it's too hot as for the white rocket it looks like some tugging issue with extruder. how is the spool mounted there and how the path from spool to extruder goes? .. I had similar crappy finish when my spool wa...

Re: bridging issue

hi HexHyte, seen that one, I think it is not the same, I think your issue is actually more common and way more important then this one I'm having here now. What you explain there is fundamental issue with bridging in s3d that I didn't figure out how to solve neither tweaking s3d nor tweaking the obj...

Re: Localised infil

Those pieces are simply parallel test parts. The real wing would change with span (z height) in size, shape, twist and cutouts. It would not be that simple (at least for me) to directly write my own gcode. have you tried? it's actually easier the it sounds :D it actually depends on how do you desig...
