@larsbrubaker OK Ill look at the alpha update
When MC just closes, when trying to access t4erh cloud library, does it create a log? If so where would the log be?
Ive gone thru user/app data/local/ Mattercontrol folders
@jflyden Seems that way in regards to mesh bed leveling. As for jagged curves.... Sorry I never experienced that except with a very low resolution stl. All my settings in PS are custom though that means I started in "expert" mode with setting up a custom printer and taking it from there. I don't want to make any claims on current versions of the pulse as mine is/was a C version and IDK what they have done since. I originally paid the extra $$$ for the pulse to have something that was "good to go" out of the box and in hindsight that was a mistake as any subsequent printer I got that cost less than 1/2 of the pulse had way less problems than the pulse so I stopped following what exactly they did - plus there never was a "Here is how you turn your C model into a D or whatever other letter they are up to." Right now my pulse is apart and is waiting for me to have nothing better to do than turn it into a properly functioning printer. There were serious problems with the C model that prevented it to do what I bought it for mainly to print at higher temperatures for extended periods of time. For that for starters the PSU was grossly underpowered so the Pulse became parts when the PSU had a "melt down" for the 2nd time after the warranty expired. The stock hotend mounts were RYNO and they melted down and deformed when you printed at 280ish nozzle and 100 bed and printed a bigger part. The fan part cooling was a problem as if you had a bridge close to the bed and the fan turned on with bed at 100 nozzle 260 like when printing ABS or HIPS you caused a thermal runaway way too often as you could not maintain temp. Going to a 40 watt heater at the hotend pushed the PSU over its 15 amp limit. (it says in the mini rambo board manual PSU 16A absolute minimum) then there were wiring problems that caused arcing and there was no fan on the board so if you made an enclosure it overheated (I took that off when I saw the temp on the board climbing. So IOW there was no way to consistantly print for longer periods of time as advertised. OTOH I have an Anycubic Chiron sitting right next to me that I bought sub $500 and all I did replaced the hotend with a Volcano and also easily upgraded some wiring (longer drag chain and high flex silicon wire) and its been working like a beast keeping the bed at 105 to 110 with no thermal runaways, ABS, NYLON, PETG, HIPS all stick extremely well and no thermal runaways when the fan turns on and yes I have some blemishes on the build plate after running 150kg of mostly ABS/HIPS at 260/105 and about 20 kg of Nylon through it - mostly 910. So about a little over a year ago when the pulse died it was either fixing it or buying another printer so we got another Chiron and that performs just as well. We also got a Mega-X and a predator and they are doing well too . Predator is currently getting a mosquito clone as I want to try that one. Sorry for the rant - Start with a clean setup in PS. All the stuff we print is done in PS and yeah currently not printed on a pulse
And oh yeah for the Pulse when I get to it the plan is and enclosure with the electronics outside, a 360 watt PSU at 24 volts and the wiring redone and probably if the tests on the other chiron work out fine a direct drive with an orbiter and a mosquito and a properly designed mount/cooling system. And I am playing with the idea of turning it into a core xy.
Are you struggling to find a setting? There are a few different view options in 2.0 that you may not be aware of.
Simple, Intermediate, and Advanced
Happy to help you understand the UI if that's the main issue. By staying on 1.7 you're missing out on a lot of really great new features.
@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.
