    First off, version 1.6 is very old. The latest version is 1.7.5. I would recommend updating. This may help with the bumps you are seeing.

    Stringing can be minimized by dialing in your retraction settings. Here is our article on how to do that.

    That option is not available when using MatterSlice as your slice engine. If you need it then you will have to use Slic3r instead.

    The current plan is to allow you to add shapes (like cubes, cylinders, cones, etc.) and then support material will be added wherever needed within that shape.

    MatterControl 1.7 does not have this feature, however we are working on adding it to MatterControl 2.0.

    That is a VERY old version of Mono. MatterControl does not support Mono versions before 4.4. There are instructions for upgrading on the wiki.

    1. Cura uses different start G-Code depending on whether you are using the single head or the dual head. MatterControl only has a profile for the single head right now. So for now you will just need to copy the start G-Code from Cura.
    2. Again, we have no profile for the dual head, so there are no offset settings built in.
    3. These values were probably originally copied from the TAZ 5 profile. I have corrected the TAZ 6 profile.
    4. You certainly do not need to include all the settings when creating a new material. If you look at any of the existing materials, you will see that most of them only include the temperatures and a couple other things like the density and cooling thresholds. It sounds like you might be getting confused because the editor allows you to adjust any settings you want. Here is a detailed description of how the quality and material settings work.

    I'd like to point out that you may be interested in our Printer Profile Bounty Program. If you create a profile for the dual head that works well, we would be interested in including it in MatterControl and we would give you a $15 MatterHackers store credit in return. Your profile must we well tested and in this case it should include material settings for PVA and any other filaments you think would be of interest to dual extrusion users.

    My suggestions is to not downgrade Mono unless absolutely necessary. This has the potential to break other applications on your system. When the indicator is yellow, pretty much everything will still work except for the remote control features. Do you use those?

    What is in your Pause G-Code and Resume G-Code? Are you doing any extrusion or retraction while paused?

    Sounds like a heat creep problem, but usually the translucent colors are less prone to this, not more. What exactly does the filament look like when you pull it out after a jam? Can you post a picture?
