I have a new Anycubic Predator/Kossel D. This is an awesome new $600 delta with an amazing print volume. It works fine with Cura but my favorite slicer Simplify3d is giving me many issues:
1.) With default process settings, it heats up the bed and then starts heating up the extruder. However, it attempts to print immediately without waiting for the extruder to reach its set temperature. It waits for the bed but not the extruder. Under the Temperature tab of the process settings, if I disable "wait for temperature controller to stabilize before beginning build", it just makes this worse and starts printing before anything is heated up properly.
2.) The machine settings are set to Deltabot, with build volume X = 260.00, Y=260.00, and Z =455.00. This should be correct as 260mm on a side is the largest square that can be inscribed within a 370mm diameter circle, which is the true print bed area of this printer (370mm dia, 455mm height). Homing direction is set to Center on X and Y, and Max on Z. As far as I can tell this should be correct, but when the print begins it thinks the Z is set at the max of 455mm. It attempts to print in the air.... I could try to change the offset but don't want to risk this crashing into my new bed.
Anyway, it would be great if Simplify3d could produce a profile for this interesting new printer.
