Feature Request: Clear Communication Window Button

Could the authors of S3D please consider adding a button to the machine control panel on the Communications tab to clear the current contents of the communications window.

Simple little addition which would make life easier.

Feature Request: Macro Commands

I have been trying to make use of the 3 buttons on the printer control dialog to issue commands to my Replicator 2X. Unfortunately these commands do not work because being a Replicator it wants the instructions sent as X3G. Presently S3G doesn't do any conversion - it sends the GCODE. Could I theref...

Re: Issue With Preheating

I don't usually have my bot preheated. It was just unusual yesterday when I tried.

It might not be a problem, I would be grateful if someone else could confirm.

Feature Request: Snapshot Window

Could consideration please be given in a future version of S3D to the preview window showing a line of information containing salient printing parameters is shown? I'm thinking these parameters would apply if printing over USB. Often times when I am designing a new printing profile I want to be remi...

Issue With Preheating

I haven't verified the following fully, however I think it might be a problem that needs looking into. Perhaps someone else could try the same to confirm? I designed a job to print with my left extruder. I then pre-heated te left side to 235 degrees, and executed print over USB. As the left extruder...

Re: directly sending commands

Are there X3G alternatives? After all, S3G does the conversion from gcode to X3G automagically when you do the print request. That seems to suggest that X3G has equivalent commands to gcode. There are equivalents, but X3G is a binary format (with self-checking, aka checksumming, IIRC), so the cmds ...

Re: Issues With v2.1.1

I can't speak on issue #1 since I usually print through SD Card, but for Issue #2 Simplify3D didn't do that in previous versions either. You can save a factory file though and that should accomplish what your looking for as far as saving the models, their orientations and scale. I saved the design ...

A bit like French and English. Talk to me in French and you might as well be speaking gibberish.

Re: Issues With v2.1.1

I have only recently started using #2 to define the scaling (when I remember!), so wasn't sure if it was carried over from v2.1. It seems to be a shame that those parameters don't get auto-saved when everything else seems to be remembered. If you define the model name on that same dialog that IS rem...

Re: directly sending commands

My understanding is that my MakerBot Replicator 2X uses X3G, not gcode. So I can't send gcode commands to it. Is this correct?
