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.
My best guess here is the printer profile that you have selected does not support that specific feature. That said, you may consider setting it up as a new machine as a whole so you can enable that during the setup.
@thejasonplayz I don't have an A8 but for the printers I have it was in the manual that came with it. Most likely either 250,000 or 115,200 etc there should be a drop down with options and if you dont have the info you might have to just try. And most likely its either com3 or com4. You could set up a new printer and start experimenting with the options
Mc doess indeed insert the heating gcode automatically. It does this just before it runs your customised start gcode. The only exception to this is if your custom start gcode has heating code in it... the mc figures u are taking care of it and it no longer has to do it automatically. On some printers heating before homing can cause issues so I did try the heating code in the custom start code but it made no difference to my other issues and given it is a dual extruder... easier to let mc take care of heating and picking extruders.
Thanks for the feedback
Love MatterControl... But there is definitively some issues when subtracting. In my case, when you try to subsequent subtract more than one time the same element, the item disappears or the application status bar gets stuck. If you try to subtract from a mid complex item, same issues happens.
I tough that maybe have to do with objects that are grouped, but even when they are flattened, its impossible to make it work in 98% of the cases.
Code team... please solve this issue.
@erikescudero The print dialog box used to say that a part may need support and there was a "button" on it to bring up the generate support dialog box that the little icon you are referring brings up also. I just found it handy to be told (as a reminder) if I brought in a part that MatterControl thought needed support. The reminder is what I am talking about. The button that I dismissed was not actually the final generate support dialog box, but it did bring it up.
I hit the dismiss button and I would like to bring back the reminder, but I can't find it. I have two computers running six printers and I like to have each system behave the same way.
