Re: Support settings messed up?

you may want to try reducing the support resolution to give you more than one tower try 1mm or 2 mm . Also add a couple of base layers. Also you do not need lower separation unless you have supports printed surface and those number are layers.. so I assume you layer height is .1 or something other w...

Re: Retraction distance is measured where?

it is not the complicated.. the gear in the drive pull the filament back the amount that it is set to.. so direct drive has the gear right over the nozzle so .5 or .8 mm works fine.. with a remote drive (Bowden) the drive is a foot or more from the hot end with the filament in a plastic tube.

You all do realize that you need someone who really knows a lot about 3d printing and programming to rewrite software that does what a slicer does.

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.
