Can you see the error in the GCode preview? If there is a line segment that is not in the direction that you expect that would be a bug in the model or possibly how it is slicing. But if there is nothing in the gcode view that is showing this error it is in the settings (probably speed).
Ok it appears to be two things going on.
For item 1) it is a corrupted complex object. MatterHackers tech support says it is due to a mesh defect. Not sure how that came about as the object was created using add and subtract parts of MC.
For item, 2) Apparently I was not waiting long enough for the subtract to complete.
The hourglass and progress bar for Subtract is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYY TOO teeny!
Thanks to Tech support for spotting and point the progress bar issue out but MatterHackers should make it bigger. Seriously.
I do have to say, this machine has not been a smooth experience for me. I expect this kind of setup and tweaking for a machine that came out of a kickstarter, not one that is sold as an engineering unit.
Connecting to a laptop got these 2 errors to come up (sorry, had to re-size them)
Hook it up to another machine, and these were the first 2 fun messages. After that, only took 2 tries to get an unsatisfying benchy. This was on standard mode, not fast. Looks horrible for an hour-20. (albeit I was using the leftovers of a roll of Raise3d Premium PLA that was vacuum stored)
The Combine and Subtract operations are very sensitive to geometry being manifold or water tight. The Twist operation often produces non-manifold geometry that can be a problem for these functions. We are working on a new method to do object merging that should address these issues. This new method will also work on Mac and Linux where the current method does not.
We currently expect this to be release in mid August.
@tinken Ok, thank you. As I said I use CUDA for work, which I mostly do on my Mint build so i cannot avoid using Nvidia Linux drivers. I suppose I will have to live with only using MatterControl on windows.
@larsbrubaker It is all ok. I am no longer chained to Mattercontrol since I went to Duet and no longer need MC to level my bed. But if you are making engineering parts using MC/Pulse with usb connection, it has to be on Linux or you will get interrupts on Windows, even if you unplug from the internet.
I use MatterControl because it is superior to the other slicers (I have most of them), except for when you are making a large print in Nylon, then Simplify is better because of multiple skirt layers.
@tinken Yes I understand how subtract works, I know you are trying to help. However it appears that a subbtracted flattend part got corrupted. I got around it by using Combine. Once I combined the part that was erroneously subtracting, subtract worked corectly.
Salut. Il existe un livre disponible sur Amazon pour Mattercontrol, mais il est obsolète. Si vous recherchez ceci, vous pouvez récupérer une copie utilisée. Le livre couvre beaucoup de choses que vous ne trouverez pas dans la base de connaissances en ligne.
Hello. There is a book available on Amazon for Mattercontrol, but it is out of date. If you search for this, you can pick up a used copy. The book covers many things you will not find in the online knowledge base.
