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!
Don't like necro'ing threads, but I have a CTC branded printer (Pretty sure it's a makerbot clone). Is it possible to have it added to your list of printers? Happy to export my settings out for you to look at.
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.
Unfortunately I can be of any help.
But the fact that so many bits are hidden away is the reason I did not like it.I use control v1.75 to print with but use S3D to slice, simply because of the better support structure, Which in my HO sucks in matter control which ever version you use
Sorry about that.
You need to have a printer setup for this to work. We have filed a bug for this issue and will make sure that you can export from a design tab without setting up a printer.
If all you want to do is export STLs it does not matter what printer you setup.
@mpirringer Yeah, I already have that setting done - I wonder why people don't do the same with Cura - if it's that simple.
Maybe they said so because they have this extra HW with the printer server as a product they wonna sell ;-))
OK, thx, I'm will try to use MatterControl with Fusion 360 and my CR10s PRO via USB cable.
That would be a step in the wrong direction as different printers print the same material differently. Different printers have different hotends which are capable of melting the material at a different rate. So lets even say the same printer with an E3D V6 and a .8 nozzle will melt most plastic at about 13 mm3/sec while with a volcano at about 23-25mm3/sec and the V6 might need another 10-20c in temp to do that. And that is on the same printer than different printers have different fans which changes the fan settings for bridging and different printers are capable of different travel speeds. So the ideal setting for one printer might be a .2mm layer height with a .8 nozzle for another a .4 and a higher speed etc. So unfortunately you cannot use one global setting for different printers unless they are very very similar.
I am a brand new user and working on my first project.
I was trying to subtract a slope from a rectangle and it wasn't working and thought I must have been doing something wrong, so I opened a fresh project to experiment with to figure it out.
Even on a clean slate, with 2 primitive cubes, with no adjustments, just 2 bog-standard 20x20x20 cubes straight off the menu, it can't subtract an overlapping corner.
All it does it groups them, well, double groups them actually. I have to ungroup, then ungroup again to separate them.
I tried to save the STL and load it into 123D (gasp) and cut it there instead, but the entire project ends up grouped as one object and 123D cant ungroup it, so...... no luck there either.
Looks like I am going to have to start from scratch in 123D and maybe check back on MatterControl once its a bit further along in development.
I'm running on Win10, with an Intel i7.
I really hope you can sort it out.
On a side note, I couldn't get it to connect to my printer, a cocoon create touch, which is a rebranded Wanhao duplicator i3 plus, which is essentially a commercial Prusa RepRap.
It just continually says no printer found even though I can see the ramps listed in the system devices, and Cura connects fine.
I even tried manually selecting the COM but it still says there is no one home.
But the subtract issue is WAY more important, I can always us an SDcard.
P.s. 1.6k views on this topic, so I would say there are a LOT of people having this issue, not just the few who have posted.
@larsbrubaker said in Subtract & Subtract and Replace:
You probably need to download and install the Visual Studio Redistributable from Microsoft. This is installed on most computers but it is possible yours does not have it.
You can find it here.
I also recorded a gif of how it should work. If this is what you are doing, but not getting the results you expect, it is probably that you need to install the redistributable from Microsoft.
@67exec Hi Did you see this? I had the same probelm, Lars responded here, found your problem today. The Vis Redistributable worked.
Saw you had your own software, but no linux =(. No good to me without linux was making me want to change brands. Untill I find I cannot get the software. I notice you have something on gethhub so I will look a little more.
Looks like your connection to MatterHackers Community was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
