How to verify temperature setting

I have single extruder that I want to set to 215 C. How do I do it? How do I verify it? How do I set bed to 105 C & verify it? Where are my configuration files saved? Can I move them? What is file extension? Is there a Users' manual that goes beyond the Quick Start Guide? BTW: I had reported that v1...

Re: Marlin firmware on GEN6 electronics

The solution for getting Creator to connect to Gen 6 electronics without having to push the reset button is to open the serial port from the device manager and enable 'Set RTS On Close'. Once that is set, Creator will be able to connect and disconnect repeatedly without having to push the reset but...

Re: Creator running on MG Mendel Prusa

I have a feeling this is related to some older boards that don't reset properly when a new serial connection is initiated. Karl has done some great troubleshooting previously, and I'm fairly certain the Gen6 falls into this category. We're planning to fix this for the 1.0.7 update, which is in fina...

No luck. Thanks for jumping in Karl.

Re: Creator running on MG Mendel Prusa

What firmware are you running? Creator works with Marlin and Sprinter out of the box, but yes, there will be a few changes for a different firmware type. When you connect to the firmware using Pronterface, what do you see in the communication log? The Marlin firmware usually sends a "start" respons...

Creator running on MG Mendel Prusa

I'm connecting to Com2 (only port available) at 115200 with Pronterface, but unable to connect @ any bps with Creator. Device manager says "Arduino Mega 2560 (COM2)" "This device is working properly" Win7 SP1 32 bit. I suspect firmware ... I don't think I have Marlin. If that's the case, I'll need h...

Velocity Units

I'm about to make my first print using Creator on a MG Prusa.

I'm puzzled by the choice of velocity units ... mm/MINUTE. I've been printing for months, and all the software & firmware I've used has mm/SECOND. Is there a setting in Creator that can change the units?

Re: What Software Will I Still Need?

Thanks Karl; that's good news. I plan to buy Creator soon. One more question: As I recall, Netfabb allows me to identify the layer where I want to make a change ... I may want change infill density at a certain Z level. A good example is the Buddha, where I want infill for the base, and print hollow...
