No haven't gone that far yet, but will give it a try.Waiting for a new heat bed to arrive, not having much luck with those either.Had a Mk3 which would not heat past 54 degrees, then tried a MK2B which only heated half the board, now waiting for Mark2A, maybe 3rd time lucky.
OK, that seems fair enough, I had no problem with doing it with the desktop version.I hope they fix these little problems up, as I believe it to be the way of the future, generally it's a good system, I only hope they fix these problems quickly.
The MatterControl Touch and T10 tablets can have trouble with models with which the desktop versions of the app do not due to the difference in processing power between the two.If you're getting the "Too Big to Render" message then you might try decimating the model using this tutorial: http://www.shapeways.com/tutorials/polygon_reduction_with_meshlabDecimating the model to a usable size won't affect the model to the point where you lose any resolution; there's basically too much resolution as of now that is wasted and that 3D printing can't even begin to use.
Hi Ernie,We have answered this question multiple times. Apparently you have not been seeing the responses. Here is the other thread. Please continue discussion there.I am locking this thread since it is a duplicate.
I have made one for the smaller touch which works well for my I3, I have a T10 on the way so will be making necessary adjustments to suit. Do not know what you mean when you say for the Ultimaker, do you want to attach it in some way or just stand it on the bench in front or beside the printer.
Large models can cause problems. If your models are bigger than 10 MB, you can try decimating them using this guide before you attempt to use them with your MatterControl Touch:http://www.shapeways.com/tutorials/polygon_reduction_with_meshlabIf you continue to have difficulty and can rule out large files as the source, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to help.
@makerbotspace said:they both print 2-3 layers and then quits like the print was completed.Sorry to hear about the trouble with the tablets. Can you provide a print log for these prints? I'd like to see what's happening in G-Code when the prints "complete." You can upload the files to Dropbox etc. and provide a link here or email email@example.com and we'll proceed via our ticketing system.
Currently MatterControl supports only adding in multiple objects from file, not from within MatterControl itself. To do this, you would: Save a file to the Android file system. This can be done by downloading a file from the browser, importing from SD card, etc.Select the first model in the QUEUE and view it in the PREVIEW pane.Click the 'Insert' button at the bottom left of the 3D VIEW pane.Choose the file from the file system and click 'Open'.The model will be added to the 3D VIEW and can be moved, edited, etc.We're working on adding models from within MatterControl (i.e. QUEUE or LIBRARY); hopefully this functionality will be available in the next version or two.
Larger files will do this to MatterControl, so you'll probably need to decimate the models before you try to use them on the Touch. You won't lose any visible resolution in the finished model as the extremely high polygon counts that account for such large file sizes are too complex for 3D printers to print anyway.Here's a link to a good tutorial using Meshlab to decimate: http://www.shapeways.com/tutorials/polygon_reducti...
I just purchased a "Touch" and uploaded the latest patches/updates and I too am seeing exactly the same issues being described here. I have a print that is supposed to take about 2 hours and 20 minutes and it keeps just stopping in mid-print using the Touch. The most recent attempt left the hotend and bed both still heating. The first time, everything reset. The Touch appears to reload or reboot itself every time this happens. Evidently, the stability patch - well - isn't.
