Switching printers problem

Wed Nov 20, 2019 8:27 pm

I have a Lulzbot Taz 5 and a Makerbot R2. When I switch printers from the R2 to the Taz 5, by loading a factory file, the printer obj file of the R2's base remains behind and the print bed and volume box of the Taz5 appears. This will work, but it's annoying. The only way I can get each printer to consistently display correctly is to switch using the configuration assistant.

But!! When I use the configuration assistant, about 1 time in 20 the program has a ctd. From that point on, either the program will require a reset to run, or in the best case it will still work, but I can never use the configuration assistant again to switch printers. (unless I do a program reset.) Why does using the configuration assistant sometimes crash the program? I use Win 7 64 bit

Is this a known issue? Also where does S3D store the printer obj files? I searched my entire hard drive and didn't find them. Are they hidden? In the registry like the profiles?
