Re: adaptive mesh leveling (bed mesh on print area only)

Yes, this is fairly easy to do using the [build_min_*] and [build_max_*] variables. Just add the following to your starting script depending on which firmware you are using: Klipper: BED_MESH_CALIBRATE mesh_min=[build_min_x],[build_min_y] mesh_max=[build_max_x],[build_max_y] PROBE_COUNT=6,6 Marlin: ...

Re: Can't Save Preview Mode Settings

I know we've had many users contact our support team in the past saying they suddenly had something like blobs occurring all over the preview and couldn't figure out how to make it stop. In reality, the issue was only that they had enabled the Show in Preview > Retractions setting, and forgotten to ...

Re: OctoPrint in 5.1

Are you using the latest V5.1.2. release? There were already improvements published in prior releases that included the ability to enter .local domain names instead of the IP. It looks like the main one was from 5.1.1 (https://www.simplify3d.com/products/sim ... ase-notes/).

Re: Toplayer extrusion width control

There are several settings for the top layer on the Infill tab. You would typically adjust the "top layer extrusion modifier" if you need slightly more or less plastic on the top layers. Note that "top layers" refers to any surface that is visible from the top of the part, not ju...

Re: FFCP2 Dual Extruder Z Offset and crossing paths

If the nozzles are physically a different height, then you can typically enter a different toolhead Z offset in the firmware. Besides that, you can also add a retraction vertical lift of 0.5mm or so in Simplify3D so that it lifts an extra amount before moving to a new location. That can help avoid o...

Re: Geeetech A10t Feeders

In S3D, you can usually change the "Auto-Configure for Extruders" drop down list to select only a single extruder if that's all you intend to use.

Re: Flying supports

That looks like a very large expansion distance... Have you tried lowering it to more like 0.5mm? That should be plenty to move the blobs away from the print and then you won't have such large overhangs.

Re: configuration wizard not showing listet printers

For machines that have all sorts of different configuration options (different toolheads, different build volumes, different filament feeders, etc) we frequently aren't able to provide all of those variations directly in the software. In that case, just contact our team directly at the link below ex...
