Reduce build voume to compensate for large fan duct

Thu Sep 06, 2018 8:52 am

Hi,

I have a fairly chunky fan duct that I've added to my FlashForge Creator Pro. It was the only one I could get to print reliably enough without already having one.

It sticks out so far that it can hit the door on the front of the printer.

So I'd like to make it so that the build volume is shrunk in the Y axis by about 20mm like this:

What's the best way to do that in Simplify3D?

Thanks!

Two options - you choose:

1) set it in Pref's

2) set in it the Process you want to use (it's in the Gcode tab).

I prefer to set it in the Process because I have more than one machine - that makes it easy to manage it per machine.

I'm intrigued... I have a Creator Pro and I can't see what the duct is for or where it might be connected.

Please may I ask?
