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 delta 3d printer called Silhouette ALTA that I found the G-Code after searching for through the internet. Some of it seems to work but I keep getting a thumping while it is attempting to print. Do you have any idea of what may be causing this?
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.
@hamprinter Thank you! I just figured that out myself last night as well, came here to post that was the cause. Hmm. Feel like that setting maybe should be grouped with the speeds, but thats a UI question.
OK, this appears to be a problem with the baud rate after all. I was able to work around it, once I discovered that even thoughg it did not connect, I could manually set the baud rate in the printer profile (in this case to 115K).
Now it connects.
I have not tried MC in Ubuntu yet. But I can offer you a few thoughts.
If you run the following command, does it display the group was added?;
Also found this post about modemmanager causing problems with dialout.
Other thoughts would be; try loading the software as root/adding user to root group/allowing login as root
(I understand security implications but just thoughts for troubleshooting)
I like MC for the mesh modifications; that are easily done inside it, but for any sequential printing or complex slicing, I use Prusa Slicer or Cura.
I would try and find a "preset" for your printer for either of the two mentioned programs.
Does your printer use bed leveling through MC?
Thank you for your reply. It's good to know someone thinks I make sense.
I just updated to 18.104.22.16893 but it doesn't look like it's there. Has this been implemented and if not when do you think it will be?
