Modifying the Gcode, then creating x3g

Hello,

I want to know if I can generate GCode for a build, then edit that file externally, THEN generate the x3g file.

As far as I know, the generation of GCode AND x3g file happen at the same time.

I want to create an x3g file AFTER the fact.

Possible with S3D?

Adding Audio Alerts at selects points in a build

I would like to add Beeps so that without getting up to look at the printer, I get audio clues as to where the build progress is.

For example, if my build is 100 layers, I would like......

One beep at Layer 25
Two beeps at Layer 50
and three beeps at Layer 75

Is this possible with S3D ?

Thanks

Re: Photo - Anyone recognize this issue?

Ouch! Glad you found it, but it sounds like it will be a pain to get fixed or replaced. I don't think they can add a section to the trouble shooting guide called " Your machines broken..." Thanks. I may have to design and print a replacement if I can't get one. May be difficult. Interesting point a...

Re: Photo - Anyone recognize this issue?

The problem sometimes isn't as simple as the standard fixes One of the Y-Axis frame stanchions was cracked allowing the Y axis control rod on one side of the machine to move around approximately 1/8 in any direction. Physical damage to the machine. No adjustment could have corrected this out. Thanks

Re: Printing certain areas solid infill, the rest 65% infill

Here's the Solution....... It's quite simple actually. In your design software (I use TurboCAD), you need to slice the completed model so that the areas you want to have more dense infill are separate pieces. You should then save ALL the pieces of the model as individual STL files. Then in S3D, impo...

Printing certain areas solid infill, the rest 65% infill

I have a situation where I need to print a certain area of an otherwise flat object with solid infill just around two points that need reinforcing for strength. The item is 6 inches by 5 inches so I do not want to print the entire thing with solid infill as that is unnecessary and very time consumin...

Re: What causes this ? Low Stepper voltage maybe?

I think the important thing you need to realise is that a stepper motor is nothing like a normal motor. A normal motor has an armature that will spin when power is applied....whereas a stepper motor is designed to move a fixed amount whenever power is applied to it.....it "steps" through whatever a...

Re: What causes this ? Low Stepper voltage maybe?

Temps are pretty machine specific, since nobody calibrates them for real. Stepper motors do not "run slow". they either move at the commanded speed, or they stall. If slow enough, they can restart after a stall. So does this mean that even if they are commanded to step at say 100 steps per revoluti...
