4.0 - Print order of multiple sequential objects

Tue Aug 15, 2017 3:21 am

In 4.0 you are supposed to be able to reorder your processes to reorder the print order. I've placed a priming block process first in the process order yet it prints as the 3rd process instead of the first. I really need this functionality and 4.0 is supposed to have it. Please advise.

It would probably be easier to help if you posted your factory file

I couldn't find a way to upload here so here is a dropbox link. Here is the 4.0 factory file. I need this to work this morning. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I can reproduce the issue:

1) When I create the processes freshly then move the prime block to the first position the prime block prints first.
2) If I subsequently edit any of the processes under the prime block then the print order changes even though the process order remains the same.
3) If I delete the prime block process, add it back, and place it back in the first position the print order is correct again.

It seems to have something to do with editing a process which causes the print order to go wonky.

Thanks
Chris

Chris,

I tried to take a look at your factory file and reproduce the issue on my end with your models but with new profiles. The issue doesn't seem to be showing up with just the steps you've given. Can you be more specific about what setting you were changing to make the priming block drop to 3rd in printing order instead first like it is in my processes?

I changed "First Layer Height". I haven't tried editing other fields.

The new process ordering feature really gets screwed up easily. I am getting ordering issues in other multi sequential prints now. Some I can't resolve no matter what I do. I submitted a support ticket this morning but still no response.

THE NEW SEQUENTIAL PROCESS ORDERING FEATURE DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY
