Re: New user printing to Mach 3

Can someone send me some G-code from Simplify3d for any printer that you know works? I am having a difficult time figuring out what I have to change in Mach 3 to get it to understand the G-code from Simplify3D.

Thanks,

Re: Major bug, x-axis leaning to the right (positive)

Having spent quite a bit of time on the Reprap forums and having done industrial wiring for most of my life I am a little amazed that some of what I see in pictures works at all! The tough part about electical noise is that it may be very difficult to identify, and even tougher to fix. My CNC/mill h...

Re: Feature Request: Auto Reload Of Last Factory File

Jim,
I use Solid Works and Solid Edge for 9 years before that and they both use thousands of linked files that you must never move, or spend lots of time locating and linking them again. That's what prompted the question.

Re: Support grid not calculated correctly.

Just curious, what kind of machine are you using. It looks very robust, large timing belts and recirculating linear bearings. The part also looks very good, despite the problem you are having with support.

Re: What does this button do?

Years ago I had a young programmer working for me, doing a program to operate a machine. It was written in assembler and burned into an Eprom. Every couple of days I'd pop in and ask him to explain some of the code he'd just written. If he couldn't look at his code and the comments he had written an...

Re: Feature Request: Auto Reload Of Last Factory File

I'm a new user that hasn't yet got my printer running. Does the factory file actually contain the 3D model and the processes, or does it contain a link to the model, wherever it was was loaded from? I don't like programs that load previous work automatically. You are trying to guess what I want to d...

What does this button do?

I read everyone's suggestions here that go something like "Use the XBD button to change the way that works" I've had to do manuals for waste water treatment plants that have lots of buttons. Wouldn't it be nice to have a simple list of every function, how to find it, what it does, and WHY you should...

Re: Feature Request: Name of .factory file in title bar

Yes I'd like to know which factory file is currently open or has been loaded whichever the case may be. As mentioned it is too easy to over write something accidentally when you are aren't aware.

Re: Software development status ?

So you want the author to not only be great at coding the software, and marketing too? Lots of people who are great at making things are not very good at presenting or selling them. On the other hand I've met a few too many great salesmen, with crap for sale. Be careful what you wish for!
