Re: printing over usb vs sd card

As TheBum has said, an external computer will always be doing something else and that something else could be disruptive. I too like (and rely on) the convenience of having an external control via PC. I can control and initiate prints from anywhere using this method. I am using quite a high-spec mac...

Re: Wrong perimeters

Notionally, that is likely to be either under extrusion, or too low a temperature. Each will have an effect to stop the filament from flowing outwards sufficiently. Speed could also have an effect, printing too fast will also cause the filament to elongate and not be able to flow outwards. I'd try s...

Re: 6 walls but infill being added

There are a number of possible reasons for this 1) You don't have concentric infill selected (may help) 2) If the gaps between the perimeters is not a multiple of the extrusion width then it cannot infill with a single extrusion and will create a wavy infill. Eg. if the extrusion width is 0.4 and th...

Re: Dual Extrusion Ooze Shield - How To Prime On All Layers?

An alternative (and arguably better) approach would be to stick with the multiple processes and switch off the redundant extruder when it's not being used. You need to allow some warm-up time, but that should be easy to allow for. That way you should get no ooze and also save some power.

Re: Vase mode issue

Could it be as simple as the wall thickness being too thin?

Re: License info

Yes, each licence allows for installation on two machines. As far as I know there is no limitation whereby the machines need to be running the same OS.

Re: Full Fan for Last Layer of Dense Supports.

That sounds like a really interesting idea which makes a lot of sense. I may have a play with that using processes to see what difference it makes.

Re: Accessibility issue for color blind people

I'm colour blind too and I have a further idea: how about when you click on the Feature Type in the list, it is highlighted in the preview screen - perhaps with the other features turning grey? Maybe allow multiple selections too? working in the same way? That is grey out deselected features? I too ...

Re: BRIM help

The short answer is that a brim is simply a skirt with a zero mm offset from part.

Go to Additions and configure the number of layers and outlines for your brim, but select 0mm for offset and Bob's your uncle!

Re: Is a 90% First Layer Pointless Now?

I didn't realise this had changed either. That does seem like a backward step to me too.
