Tip of the Day 1- FlashForge Dreamer Lights

Tue Jan 13, 2015 3:35 pm

The FlashForge Dreamer uses G-Code to control the RGB lights. The G-Code line for the default profiles is highlighted in the picture below which is for the Starting G-Code in the process settings window. The lights are set to red for preheating and off for the print, but I personally like to print with the lights on max so I set the zero's to 255 for each of them. 0 is off, 255 is max for each RGB value.

M146 r255 g255 b255; max lights

that seems pretty cool! I would definitely use this as a visual indicator of different print stages (i.e. heating up, printing, done), wish i had a dreamer :(

Thanks for this. Got my printer on Wednesday and Simplify3D yesterday (Saturday) Loving it, but like to be able to see what's going on inside.
