I just wanted to say that they have fixed my purge issue, and I am waiting for the Alpha to come out to test it. Can't wait, as the rest I have seen has fixed everything I had problems with in the previous versions.
Here is hoping!
I have a Robo. Where did the option for Automatic Print Leveling go?You are probably getting confused about the different kinds of print leveling that are available. Your Robo has hardware leveling which allows it to probe the height of the bed before each print. Other printers don't have this feature, so for them MatterControl has the option to use automatic software leveling. This is where you measure the height of 3 points on the bed using the piece of paper. If you try to use both types of leveling at once, they will conflict with each other and cause problems. This is why the option for software leveling is now hidden if you have a Robo or any other type of printer with a probe. For more information on the various types of leveling, and how to configure them, look at our article on Automatic Print Leveling.
@jflyden Beginning and ending code is the same no matter what the slicer is so you can just copy and paste from MC Also set it to expert and there is a thing somewhere for "flavor" set it to marlin as your printers are based on that. The only other thing you will have to do is define a custom printer and name it whatever you want and set the build volume dimensions here is my start code
G28 ; home all axes
G0 X5 Y5 Z1.2 F1800
G1 X230 E50 Z1.2 F900
And my end code
; Retract and move away
G1 E-[retract_length] F1200
G0 X5 Y210 F1200
M104 S0 ; turn off temperature
M140 S0 ; turn off heat bed
M106 S0 ; turn off layer fan
M84 ; disable motors
@ggm said in MatterControl Pro:
What Do you mean by a scalable trapezoid? There are many primitives that have configurations options and if you describe what you are trying to do, I will be happy to try to explain a solution.
it looks like you have a wall around this shape? if you do, you can bring in a flat cube so that it covers the wall and use the 'subtract and replace which could leave you (once you ungroup it afterwards) with the bit you want. trial and error.
When you created the MC file you will have saved it somewhere, wither in the cloud library or the local library. take a look there and see if you can find it.
by the way there are export options fro0m the print dialog so you could save as an .stl and then edit that by bringing it back into MC.
You can change the parameters of the ring both at the time you make it, and later. If you change it by editing the black 'blobs' X,Y,Z it will change that dimension. theres scale object too.
you should take a look at the online help- its excellent - spend 10 minutes there and it will pay you an hour of pain.
Hope this helps a bit.
I think I've solved it. The board had repetier on it, switching to Marlin firmware seems to have fixed the leveling setup.
Unfortunately I'm now having issues with the print head being too low to lay the 1st layer after levelling.
If you submitted to support, or put it up on GitHub, we can include it in the release and also you will get a $15 store credit to matter hackers.
