Re: Makergear M3-ID will not respond to any commands.

been a long time since I used s3d to control a printer but don't you have to connect first? I really don't recall but there is a serial connection over USB so it has to initiate a connection at some point.

Re: Material Shrinkage/Expansion Import Profiles

you sure you have extrusion multiplier and filament diameter accurately set for that particular roll or section of filament.. it can makes a difference in size .1 in multiplier can be the difference in go no-go in holes. Also correct z offset for layer height will change over all height by the amoun...

Re: I tested Prusaslicer

There is so much resemblance to S3D that it makes you wonder if S3D developers would have participated. A guess would be S3d took slic3r which was written in Perl and converted it to C++ or some other compiled language back in the day.. Prusa did the same thing a few years ago. Slic3r is now a spli...

Re: S3D Ironing method, using a Process

If I need ironing I just slice with Prusaslicer 3.x it is more or less the same as S3D and setting transfer 1 to 1 for my use.

Re: New printer can't handle unsupported overhangs

For instance a setting of 1 is too much when your layer height is .5mm Layer height .5mm is really appalling. Can I ask what's your line width and speed? It's difficult to imagine what your overhangs and bridges look like. Obviously you don't use a larger nozzle for a small part. When appropriate I...

Re: New printer can't handle unsupported overhangs

The way I handle this type of issue is to use custom support at 1mm resolution and intervals that will bridge well. Just a couple supports every so often. This way there is some support and they are simple to remove. One thing I don't like about S3d 4.01 which is what I use, is that with tall layers...

Re: Nozzle diameter impact on Extrusion multiplier

I use multiple nozzle size all the time with my Makergear M2. I am also using an older version of S3D which I don't think matters as I also use Prusaslicer with the same Extrusion Multiplier. With extrusion width you have to take into account the actual thickness of the filament you are using. Most ...
