Re: Firmware Retraction

It's already possible using the instructions above. S3D doesn't add any M101/M102/M103 commands if you follow those instructions. It automatically replaces them with the G10/G11 commands that you need, so there's no other changes required, and it already works with the RepRapFirmware.

Re: Export printer profile

If you go to the folder listed in this link: https://www.simplify3d.com/resources/faq/#quest-6350 You can open the Profiles folder and you can already see all the XML profiles loaded in to the software. You can then copy those to the other computer, go to File > Import Profiles, and make sure .xml i...

Re: [SOLVED] adaptive mesh leveling (bed mesh on print area only)

It doesn't enlarge the area at all unless you have Additions turned on like a skirt, raft, ooze shield, etc. Those will all increase the area since they are added beside the part.

Re: [SOLVED] adaptive mesh leveling (bed mesh on print area only)

The K1 made a lot of changes to the regular Klipper firmware, so it's possible they might require some kind of different changes. I would recommend opening a topic in the troubleshooting sub-forum and posting more details about the behavior.

Re: Idle extruder initial temperature

I know a lot of starting scripts do purge and cleaning routines for both extruders, so that's one reason many of the profiles will at least initially heat both of them together. If you wanted to get rid of that, you could potentially add something like this in the post processing script: {REPLACE &q...

Re: Inconsistent top/bottom surfaces with coarse layer height

It's somewhat normal in my experience that the first solid layer on top of the infill isn't perfectly smooth. That's part of why you print multiple top solid layers, to allow those defects to smooth out. You could always try decreasing the solid infill speed, or potentially try higher infill percent...

Re: Infill angle offsets

In V5 you can still change the infill angle, but you can't create arbitrary sequences in a single process like V4. However, as you mentioned you can probably still create something very similar using 2 processes. The instructions would be: Setup the first process normally, but then go to the Infill ...

Re: Connecting An Unknown Printer - How?

You can go to Tools > Machine Control Panel, and then click the "Add New" button to connect to a new printer. It will ask you for the printer profile during the new device setup, so typically you also want to go to Help > Configuration Assistant first to download the correct profile for yo...

Re: Toplayer extrusion width control

I don't think you can typically change the extrusion width for the top layers alone, since it uses the same width as the perimeters by default. You might want to look at the ironing features, since they might help you get some of the top level surface finish you are looking for.

Re: Interesting use of S3D processes to improve interlayer adhesion

That's a really neat use the process system in S3D! There's all sorts of things can you configure using the processes that you just can't typically do with other programs. I know we have used it to run all sorts of other similar experiments internally so it's really powerful once you get the hang of...
