@larsbrubaker OK Ill look at the alpha update
When MC just closes, when trying to access t4erh cloud library, does it create a log? If so where would the log be?
Ive gone thru user/app data/local/ Mattercontrol folders
This version created a really bizarre slice for the top layer of a large ring shape. It printed one short line, then moved over to the other side and printed another one and back and forth, retracting and moving and wasting a lot of time in the process.
The other solid layers (the bottom and all but the top) printed in about 4 minutes each, the top took more than ten and made a mess of it. I'd submit a trouble ticket but don't see any way to do that, so it looks like complaining here is the way to go.
I am normally in Linux, so I booted Windows to try this. I added hardware as "Other" and then sub category to "Other". I cancelled out of the connect printer. Next you have to add the printer tab on the right. Scroll down, you will have to add the bed size, print center and shape. All of these settings must match your printer, but you can get these settings from your other computer. You can adjust the Gcode manually however you want. I have to do this because I run Duet electronics instead of the Azteeg boards. I use gcode programming instead of Marlin.
After you have that setup, you can export away.
@fernando-silva I will see what I can do. I need to do a little more testing with this. I know it looks odd that a moderator would be having any kind of issue with MatterControl. But I am currently both using and modifying MC on a daily basis and I hope to resolve bugs or make improvements before others encounter them.
@mavin I had the same issue.
logged out of MC
logged out of the cloud sync site
windopws PCs - deleted all the /[user]/appdata/local/mattercontrol folder
reinstalled, only signed into MC
Then it started working again just fine accessing the cloud library
But now I cant extrude, so that my bad now
@cope413 What are the multiplier settings?
In MatterControl: Slice Settings > Filament > Advanced > Extrusion Multiplier ratio or %.
If this does not fix the problem, it could also be a retraction issue. I use 8mm of retraction.
Click on the three dots in the upper right corner next to the temperature reading and select "Show Printer" > "General" and look for "Serial Port". Unplug the printer, check if any COMs disappear, and plug the printer back in to see if any COMs show up. If your printer does show appear, select it, and click connect in the upper left corner.
