Re: 3D Design Software

I've been using ViaCAD pro. Currently $250, but there are coupon codes out there... Its also off line, no connection required. Full purchase price. I hate this rental crap. It has its issues, but for the price I find it fantastic. (I see the upgrade for me is 99 bucks... I'll be picking it up later ...

Screen Consolidation (Machine Control Panel)

I would like to make this recommendation (Or propose something similar)
There seems to be lots of space available in this screen, and IMHO, having something like this is so much more usable (convenient)
- No need to flip screen tabs to see or do what needs to be done.

Thanks,

Re: Support outside of Brim?

Good to know, thanks, but not really what I was referring to.

You can see in the pic that the support material was printed directly on the priming perimeter. (The skirt/brim)

I would have thought the skirt/brim would be printed OUTSIDE the support material as well, not on top of it.

New option: Infill Perimeter Outline

I would like to see an "Infill Perimeter Outline" function added. I find that when a new inside platform is being printed on top of the infill, at the edges, there is nothing for the platform to sit on, and the extruded material balls up on the end of the extruder, then blobs up on the closest spot....

Support outside of Brim?

Just wondering if this is the norm?
I would have thought the brim would have included the support material?

Re: Tip of the Day Compilation: FFF Settings Window

I just got the software, default settings are working pretty good, but more tests are needed.

Thanks!

Re: No communication with printer

Alright, I got it, my mistake. I thought I hit 250, when I actually hit 230. (Wont save my settings even after running as admin) Should have double checked when all that gibberish text came out. Made my first print last night. Copied of some of my settings from slicer, and not too much change in pri...

Re: No communication with printer

Here is what I'm getting when I connect the printer with each piece of software.
So when one is working, and the other isn't like this, I have no idea what to look for?
