Re: unable to level part on print bed

I've had this problem once or twice. The best way to fix it is fix it in the CAD software if you've built it. The lesser solution if it is not your model to monkey around with, use the rotate feature under double clicking the object. First look completely side on to the object from a plane view (eit...

Re: Convert Image to 3d

Thanks for the info! I took the pictures, converted them to png in gimp and did nothing else - viola! It worked finally! Here's a feature suggestion though - altering the shape, eg to make it circular for coasters. (Although that's not needed now, I just realized I can pretty easily crop the circle ...

Re: Save support as a STL

I've been having some issues saving it, but you are definitely supposed to be able to save the support structures. (I think I'm clicking it wrong somehow).

What are you having trouble with in trying to run your cube? Not connecting at all, something isn't working, etc?

Re: The Ultimate Compatibility Thread

I'll let you add my Aluminatus A1 into the list once I get some of the hardware fixed and I can test out the bed leveling (still haven't fixed the homing switches). But many of the promised things work great!

Re: Mysterious Holes on Print

I copied this from a different thread but it explains it. With this software they have made printing at the correct size a priority. Because of that if a feature is smaller than the extrusion width it will be ignored. If you are using 1.75 mm filament and you print at .25mm layer height the auto ex...

Re: Feature request ... (print preview, overall settings)

I'm confused by what you mean by previewing the moves. You might have the same problem I did at first wherein when you click prepare, you mess with the start slider. If you want to see the print heads moving, you really need to use the end slider to get what repetier shows. The benefit of having the...

Re: Possible Bug: Importing causing print pause

I've noticed this with importing files while printing and I think during some other context menus. I think the program can't co-process certain multiple things at once. I wouldn't mind getting this fixed as well, but I'd rather have a few other features first and just take the stutter for now.

Re: Convert Image to 3d

And that's part of the reason I got this program! (And the point of the post) Yet it's not working... I use those exact settings, hit create, hit yes I want to import model, then it says the part is small - scale to mm? And then I see nothing. I even try scaling up the stl up hundreds of times and n...

Re: Feature request

I'd love honeycomb back. One trick if you can't break support or want to fine tune: soldering iron. Yes it's better if the software works, but until then it's like a heated knife through... ice? Does setting that separation to 0 actually fix the warping on abs at times? I keep running into warping o...

Convert Image to 3d

I've been having problems attempting this. Does anyone have any tips, suggestions, techniques? I've messed around with the settings but I just can't seem to get anything at all to come out. While I started out using some of these images: http://geektyrant.com/news/2013/4/12/native-american-style-sup...
