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.
I am having the same issue. I have a CTC Bizer dual extruder (Makerbot Replicator clone) and while I can run the printer just fine with the current version of MatterControl by connecting a USB cable between my laptop and the printer, I can't get the software to export viable .x3g program files to an SD card so I can run the printer that way - all exports seem to come out in "gcode" format.
Everything inside a  is considered a variable of MC. So M104 S might even get dropped as there is no variable "240" the proper syntax is M104 S240 the [first_layer_temperature] means replace the whole thing including the  with the MC variable "first_layer_temperature" which you set in the UI. Make sure all of those parsing instructions produce valid GCODE you can export it to a file and then inspect it - to see valid gcode google "gcode marlin" most of those commands are valid for most printers using marlin
Actually, you can select a part and then click the Support Icon. The drop down have two small buttons. If you click the right side you get support added everywhere. If you click the left side, the highlighted part turns yellow. I do use support but I always have MC create it for me. I have inadvertently clicked the left side and had my part turn yellow... Give that a try. I believe it is what you are looking for.
If MC is open, I would expect that this could be done if anyone cared enough. There are sites where you can hire a programmer for single jobs.
What language is MC in? I've done this for features in OSS software before by finding someone with the needed language and hiring them for their quote on the feature to be pulled in.
Otherwise, could this feature be leveraged to point at OctoPrint? http://wiki.mattercontrol.com/SETTINGS/Printer/Features/Hardware/Networked_Printing
I want to echo that I downloaded the .deb file from the website and followed the instructions on mono, user groups, and printer naming. However, when I try to open MatterControl on Ubuntu 19.10 nothing launches. I get a spinning busy mouse for a few seconds then nothing further. No error codes or anything obvious.
Does 2.0 not work on Linux?
