  1. I already started a new thread and the problem was solved. Is there a way I can delete my last post in this thread?
  2. Awesome! Thanks for the help. Works as expected now.
  3. Can someone explain why I am getting an extra retraction command right before my skirt starts? When I print, the filament doesn't print for sometime because of the extra retraction. I have tried it in both 3.4.1 and 3.5. Maybe I have a setting that is checked or set wrong. Below is my gcode from 3.5.0 ;FLAVOR:RepRap ;TIME:966 ;Filament used: 0m, 0.239212m ;Layer height: 0.1 ;Generated with Cura_SteamEngine 3.5.0 T1 M190 S60 M104 T1 S200 M109 T1 S200 M82 ;absolute extrusion mode ;Start G-code ---------------------------------------------- G28 ;Home ;Prime the extruder G92 E0 G1 E3 F200 G92 E0 ;Start G-code ---------------------------------------------- M83 ;relative extrusion mode G1 F1500 E-6.5 ;LAYER_COUNT:18 ;LAYER:0 G1 F1200 E-9.5 <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<------------------- Here is the extra retraction ------------------------------ T1 M107 G0 F3600 X96.903 Y65.048 Z0.3 ;TYPE:SKIRT I have also attached the project file.

  4. If you want to set the extruder temperature in your Start G-code, you need to define it as {material_print_temperature, <extruder#>}. So, to set the print temperature for extuder #1 the code would be: M104 S{material_print_temperature, 0} T0 ;Set extruder 1 to print temperature M109 S{material_print_temperature, 0} T0 ;Stabilize extruder 1 print temperature For extruder #2: M104 S{material_print_temperature, 1} T1 ;Set extruder 2 to print temperature M109 S{material_print_temperature, 1} T1 ;Stabilize extruder 2 print temperature
  5. I just installed your latest build and it is working great. I was able to open both an IAM (assembly file) and an IPT (part file). Thank you for working so hard on fixing this plugin.
  6. I am still getting the same error as before. Cura is telling me that it cannot open files of that type. I am trying to open an Autodesk Inventor ipt file from Inventor 2016. I tried your v4 and v5 package. Is there something specific I should check for. Maybe I am doing something wrong.
  7. I was able to install the plugin, but when I tried to open an Inventor part I got an error that said "Cannot open files of the type ... ipt." I am trying to open in Cura 3.5. Your previous plugin worked great in 3.4.
  8. I don't know if it was okay before. I wasn't trying to print anything until I got the correct temp in the gcode. Now I need to figure out why my printer is not printing the complete first layer. Using different slicers doesn't generate the same problem. I need to first determine if there is a problem created when I convert the gcode to X3G or if it is the gcode the is the problem. I am not really sure where to start yet. I need to do some research.
  9. I was able to get the correct temperature pulled into my gcode using {material_print_temperature, <extruder number>} (thank you, ahoeben). The problem I am having at the moment is that the filament isn't coming out of the nozzle for the first several passes on the first layer. I am not sure where that issue is even addressed yet.
  10. I am experiencing the issue in 3.5. When I try to define my print temperature in my start gcode, it always sets to 210C for both extruders. The code I am using for my extruder temperature setting is: M104 S{material_print_temperature} T0 M104 S{material_print_temperature} T1 Here is the resulting gcode: M104 S210 T0 M104 S210 T1 I have set (using the GUI) extruder 1 to 235C and extruder 2 to 200C. Am I using the correct variable, {material_print_temperature}, in my startup code?
