Re: S3D won't generate supports for this model

Again, thanks.

I will try both of those free CAD packages. I am very much a mechanical noob!

Thanks,

Re: S3D won't generate supports for this model

First I tried Meshmixer but the Inspector tool couldn't fix it. Then I used FreeCad with the following workflow: 1. Open STL 2. Switch to "Part" Mode 3. Part => Create Shape from Mesh (this could take a very long time) 4. Select the created mesh 5. Part => Convert to solid 6. Select Solid part and ...

Re: S3D won't generate supports for this model

I just try to repair the model. Seems to work now with S3D. S3D is very strict if it comes to STL files. Sometimes it is good, sometimes not. Please try my fixed model DragonComplete_fixed.stl Thanks! How did you fix it? I tried using the various "repair" modes in S3D and all they did was crash the...

S3D won't generate supports for this model

Hi guys, I have tried to print this model from Thingiverse and S3D refuses to generate any supports for it. It clearly needs them. Whether I choose Normal or Contact with base, no supports are created. Why is that? Others appear to have printed it, and it has been there a few years with discussion. ...

Command line macros

Three button macros is not enough.

What would be super flexible is to be able to send g-code macros from the communications screen.

If the jog buttons could be used on the same screen as the command would be perfect!

Thanks,

Re: Screen Consolidation (Machine Control Panel)

This would be great. I would love to send gcode commands (and macros, hint hint) on the command line and have instant access to the printer jog buttons.

Re: bed levelling wizard

You all make good points. I am new to the club and have a Folger Tech Kossel 2020 delta printer. I have set my bed up with a way to level using screws and macros on Pronterface. I wish S3D had more than three macros allotted, running macros from the communications command line would be fine. Points ...

Re: bed levelling wizard

Ok, so this is one year later, but this guy's problem still isn't fixed in the bed leveling wizard. And please, no more "do it some other way" answers. I have a Folger Tech Kossel 2020 delta printer that I level with macros I have on Pronterface to level my bed. I can't use Simplify3d because the wi...

Re: Simplify3D never heats extruder (Custom machine)

Seems like the firmware is based on Marlin. Do you use the right G-Code (M104) to set the target temperature? (Tools => Firmware Configuration => FFF => Set Extruder Temperature: M104 S$ T#) Thanks for the response! I found the source of this problem. I have used cura before this and its gcode did ...

Simplify3D never heats extruder (Custom machine)

Hi all, I built a Folger Tech Kossel 2020 Delta Printer, which of course is not in the S3D machine list. I have had to enter several things to set my printer up, but I have also found problems. For one, the program never turns the extruder heater on in its g-code. I can do it manually, but I shouldn...
