Multiple Build Surfaces/Printers

Recommended Posts

I saw the "multiple build surfaces" in the feature list, but haven't messed with it yet - with a preset for each printer, I thought I would be good. As I have 3 printers, I was trying to do a Grand Benchy Comparison, but the process of changing the "printer"  kept changing settings I didn't expect, so it was very hard to do a direct comparison.

 

In fact, after the experience, I'm finding I keep losing settings I think I have saved. The difference between "profile", "Material", and "printer" don't make a lot of sense. I can change the material and no getting the settings I expect, same for printer.

 

It looks like each printer has its own profiles.... But then again, there are some repeats between them. It is hard to tell where they are coming from - I made custom profiles and they show up under two of my 3 profiles. Being in just one, or in all three, would make sense, but I don't see how it ended up in two.

 

I guess I'm looking for a workflow which will EASILY allow me to pull a single selection from a menu so I can print the same thing on a different printer.

 

(Slightly related: How do you edit the name that is appended to the begining of the output files? I would like PI3MK2_(model name).gcode to be "MK3_(model name).gcode", the CR-10 to be CR10 (not CCR10_), etc. I looked at a bunch of cfg files and never found it.)

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
