  1. I don't think I got my point clearly across. What i mean is that every time I move to another computer, I have to set up a new machine, with the dimensions of my machine. This is what I want to be able to export, the machine dimensions.
  2. Sounds great As a little note, it turned out that standby current is actually available on a seperate 5v standby rail, which I hadn't checked prior to posting this :/ silly me. Still I learned what can be done with the start / end gcode files
  3. Hello there, I love cura, it's awesome, but a thing that I've been missing a bit from slic3r, is the ability to export a config/profile, that has everything configured in it. That is, I set up cura with the machine specific settings, and then export the profile, and then I'd like to be able to export the machine settings as well. Another thing that I'd like this to tie in with, is when upgrading cura, it should check if there is a previous install of cura present, and then get the machines configured, and the last loaded profile. As a third feature suggestion, being able to make a custom installer that includes a profile and a machine (or more) would be epic, as that would make it much easier for me getting students set up to use the printer (I'm a student myself, but I'm the 3D printer guy) EDIT: Splellings
  4. Thank you very much, I seem to be too tired to read Been in that menu and out again...
  5. Hello I'd very much like the ability to adjust the distance between the support and an object if possible, as all the prints I have printed with support seems to stick too well. Also an idea for the new support: 4 layers before the support hits the object, put down 2 solid layers on the top of the infill, and 2 very light "interface" layers
  6. Ahh thanks Daid: It is late, and for some reason I read the commented out section as a sort of legend for available {tags} Thanks for the help
  7. So, I am currently setting up an i3 with RAMPS 1.4, and an ATX PSU. The ATX standard calls for at least 500mA standby current, and the PS_on wire is hooked up to the PS_on connector on the RAMPS board. M80 and M81 successfully turns on and off the PSU with manual control, but when your Gcode comes along and tries to turn on the heated bed and hotend on your 500mA standby current, well you loose power. So request: Have the start.gcode actually be put in the beginning of the gcode, and have the default contents of start.gcode to be: ;Generated with {slicer} M140 S{bed_temp} M109 T{extruder0} S{hotend0_temp} T{extruder} M190 S{bed_temp} ;Sliced at: {day} {date} {time} ;Basic settings: Layer height: {layer_height} Walls: {wall_thickness} Fill: {fill_density} ;Print time: {print_time} ;Filament used: {filament_amount}m {filament_weight}g ;Filament cost: {filament_cost} G21 ;metric values G90 ;absolute positioning M107 ;start with the fan off G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops G28 Z0 ;move Z to min endstops G1 Z15.0 F{travel_speed} ;move the platform down 15mm G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length G1 F200 E5 ;extrude 3mm of feed stock G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length again G1 F{travel_speed} M117 Printing... Where {slicer} would output something like: Cura_SteamEngine 13.10
