Re: IdeaMaker feature requests

I would very much like ideaMaker to support more than 2 tools. It's my slicer of choice and have to move to other options to support my 3rd and 4th, etc tools.

Re: Dimensions not true

I know when I get the tool changer installed, Simplify3D will be the tool I will need to use. I'd probably better get more familiar with it and tune things in there. I ran into a lot of problems when I only had my Chimera (2 tools) previously with ideaMaker. I had only once used S3D to do a 0.15 and...

Re: Dimensions not true

Zemlin I attempted to run your spreadsheet, though I wasn't sure where to put the values into ideaMaker. I looked around in Simplify3D but didn't see them off-hand. Might look into S3D a little more later. I believe the equivalent option was for the "XY Compensation for Contours" option Le...

Re: Dimensions not true

Thank you both. I wondered if some setting existed for that. I have Simplify3D, but find ideaMaker more intuitive, and had the same problem when attempting to slice with it as well. I will try out your recommended calibration steps and report back hopefully by this weekend.

Dimensions not true

I am having a problem with the attached STL. I slice it in ideaMaker the dimensions of the holes and the middle brace (neck) aren't true to the STL. I validated this by using a modifier block in ideaMaker. This is an adapter for the E3D Tool Changer and that middle bridge is binding against the side...

Re: Preview shows invalid height

I see now the issue is I didn't make the retraction a "-" value. Fixed it an now the preview shows the right height. Thank you for the response!

Preview shows invalid height

Using ideaMaker v3.5.1.3851 (beta) Found that preview shows an invalid height for the final layer. I have noticed this on several previews. If you move the slider down 1 layer it shows the correct height for that layer. id-minecraft_box__0.3000mm.gcode This is my end G-Code. I noticed if I remove it...

Re: Print Infill First

You are correct. I mistook this option as to affect the upper and lower solid fill. This is printed with 100% infill, so I believe it won't apply to this model.

Print Infill First

ideaMaker 3.5.1 Beta

When selecting only "Print infill first" option on my profile I get no change in printing order. The shells print first and the infill prints after. Shouldn't the shells be printed after the infill?

Re: Non-Selected Group and Layer Settings Added

Yes, that feature is no longer available in this version for the left extruder. It was available in the previous beta.

Re: Non-Selected Group and Layer Settings Added

V: 3.5.0.3731

1.) Resolved all problems with Adding "Per-Group Settings".
2.) Disabling Left Extruder has been removed. This was a nice feature in the previous version for quickly getting everything moved over to the right extruder.

I am not seeing how to modify the M221 to output the needed D1. Where would I do that?

Re: Flowrate Override ignored

I did a little digging and figured out ideaMaker is issuing a M221 command, but for my system (Duet) improperly provides the Tool name rather than the Drive number. ideaMaker sets: M221 T1 S88 Should be: M221 D1 S88 This may work in Simplify3D as I don't believe it attempts to set the flowrate, but ...

Flowrate Override ignored

I am using ideaMaker 3.5.0 and it is ignoring the filament flowrate setting I specify for my right extruder. This is not a problem utilizing another slicer (Simplyfy3D).
