Re: Stringing

That was my first though as well. PLA typically prints best around 200C, sometimes as far down as 190C.

Re: select objects not to print

hello. what is the advantage of doing this? or is it just a workflow preference thing? thanks. It allows you to create a factory file for all components of a design. If you only want to print certain components, for example because you broke one during assembly, you can either delete the unwanted c...

Re: Version 5 Announcement

Whoever wrote that update would make a good politician: use a lot of words but don't really say anything that wasn't already known.

If you've identified over 70 customer-requested features being implemented, how hard is it to just list them?

Re: Finally found the caused of so many bad prints??

Drop to Bed has never adjusted angles of an object. Where it does come in handy is if you're manually rotating an object such that it ends up embedded in the build plate. In that case, Drop to Bed will "lift" the object to the top of the build plate without rotating it further. Also, there are many ...

Re: S3D Crashing On Clicking Prepare To Print

Sounds like more information is needed about your computing environment, such as processor speed, memory, and OS version.

Re: select objects not to print

I think Doug's suggestion is the only approach that works. I've tried to uncheck the model in the main window and it does nothing when I go to slice. Fortunately, since you presumably won't be using the off-plate process for printing, the settings don't need to be kept up to date.

Re: Reload Part

If this feature were implemented, you'd most likely still have to redo custom supports. There's really no way for the application to know how to adapt something it didn't generate.

Re: M3D Crane Quad setup

Did you happen to get your profile working? I've been banging my head trying to get the one they sent over to reliably print even with just one extruder... Those tiny motors seem to have one heck of a time with retractions. Yes, it's working quite well. If you can minimize the resistance from the f...

Re: Print is lifting

I print PETG with a bed temperature of 85. I also put down a layer of Elmer's glue stick (the purple stuff that turns clear when it dries), which not only helps prevent lifting but also acts as a release agent when the print is done. When I was printing on a bed sheet, I used glue there also to help...

Re: Snapmaker 2.0 (A350) ?

I use a profile for my Snapmaker 1.0 that I fully expect to work with the A350 after adjusting the bed size. I'm not sure about being able to print directly from S3D: I actually use an OctoPi as a network interface for my Snapmaker and just upload the G-code files to it and print from there. If the ...
