  1. I'm sure I'm missing something...

    I installed 14.12.1. The plugins appear OK & I can set the required entries ( love the start temperature!) but nothing appears in the gcode. No TweakAt, no temperature change. If I click the Open Plugin Location button, the directory's empty.

    Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

    I'm running Debian Wheezy. The plugins worked fine in 14.09.


  2. I'm just having a go with S3D. Is there any way for S3D to put values into the startup code? For instance:

    M109 S{print_temperature}. Can the {print_temperature} be substituted with the real value?


  3. Everything you need to print is included, including SD card & a reel of filament, even a glue stick for the bed. You'll need to download the Cura software and you'll need software to produce the 3d models in the first place.


  4. Has anyone else had problems with phantom files on the SD card (UM2)? Duplicate files, files which only appear in the printer, not when the card's in the computer?

    I'm running Debian Linux.

    I tried 5 time just now to print a job & got the wrong thing every time. I ended up re-formatting the card...


  5. @IRobertI: Oh, I totally overlooked that... does that mean that I can also use the matching 1/4" freezer hose as a replacement for the bowden tube? Or is this a different material/strength/dimension?


    Very unlikely to be the same size or material. The bore on the UM is unusually small & the material is not very common.

    Printed at:

    Layer thickness 0.1

    Shell thickness 0.4

    Print speed 50

    Fill density 0

    0.8 outer shell, 0.8 inner shell AND a fill between them on a wall thickness of 0.8. Poor little thing is getting confused :???:

    I've found that going too thin on layer thickness ( and indeed too slow ) with the aim of a better finish, can be counter productive.
