Simple UI selection of wipe position

I often work with my printer remotely using remote monitoring. If I'm printing small objects I have the option to perform multiple sequential print runs manually if I want to tweak things without being there to remove the prints. Obviously I need to offset the location of each. Where this falls down...

Re: Support with outlines for high quality prints

If I understand what you're asking then the feature you're looking for is dense support. If you set this to 100% then it will create a 100% layer (or layers, you can select) at the top of the support structure.

Re: Reduce build voume to compensate for large fan duct

I'm intrigued... I have a Creator Pro and I can't see what the duct is for or where it might be connected.

Please may I ask?

Re: Layer Shifting

Most likely is a mechanical problem - the printer has been knocked or the mechanics got "stuck" during the print.

Re: Proper "Zoom" function in preview

Ahhhh! Thank you so much. That makes things so much easier. I did think it was odd.

Zoom to mouse rather than center of build volume

I imagine that either this has already been asked or is already implemented but I can't find how, but just in case... If I try to zoom in on a Preview then the zoom always tends to the centre of the bed, rather than to the area I want to inspect. So, if I'm looking at a feature towards the edge of t...

Re: Your firmware does not support real-time speed changes.

I don't think it's a S3D problem but a limitation in the FFCP/firmware (again I'm passing on what I was told, hoping to be proven wrong).

Re: Your firmware does not support real-time speed changes.

My understanding is that the FFCP doesn't support settings changes on the fly via USB. It will handle it from the panel during a print, but will not do so from GCODE via USB. I believe that was the response I got when asking the same question. I would love for that answer to have been wrong, however...

Re: Hidden feature of S3D....Time travel!

I can see one major problem with this approach. Presumably it also uses negative amounts of filament. Essentially, you add a completed print to your bed and it converts it back into a roll of filament.

Could be very handy when you have a print which goes wrong - you can just rewind and start again.

Re: Recovering S3D settings from dead laptop

Yes, in that case it does sound as if the OS is dead rather than the laptop hardware so that solution probably won't work - although might be worth a try, depending on how desperate you're feeling.
