Multiple printer support.

Fri Mar 08, 2019 1:27 pm

I own a MakerGear M2 and will get a Delta. I can't find a way to add a second printer. Is there a way to do that?

Go to Help and select the setup wizard or what ever it is called.
There you can select a new printer.
Can't look at it right now.

That erases your old printer.

This software only allows one printer? Don't people sometimes own more than one printer?

"Easily Switch Between Multiple Machines
Instead of learning a different software program for each 3D printer that you buy, you can now use the same application for all of your 3D printing hardware. The software can be quickly switched between different machine configurations, allowing you to control everything from one central application."

Claim to support switching, but I don't see how. Unless they mean switch by doing a new setup each time.

S3D DOES support multiple printers...and it is VERY EASY to do.

Use the Configuration Assistant to download the default set of printer profiles for your second printer. The profiles for your first printer WILL NOT be deleted.

Don't believe me? Sorry, there's nothing I can do about that!

I own 2 very different printers and switch between them without any problems.

I can only repeat what Doug is saying: Don't believe me? Sorry, there's nothing I can do about that!

It does NOT erase your printer. You have to remove printers manually.

I run several printers without issue.

Go to help and add the printer you want.
It will then appear in the list where it says "Select Profile" along with "Default" and what ever other printers have been set up.
