Re: Slic3r Prusa Edition 1.40.0 - FINAL

UPDATE: The final version of Slic3r PE 1.40.0 is out! Download link: https://github.com/prusa3d/Slic3r/releases/tag/version_1.40.0 A quick test run showed that it does not crash like the beta version (on Ubuntu LTS). Great! The beta version was working well, except it kept crashing. But at least it...

I am using Swiss clips to hold a steel sheet to my mk2 printbed, admittedly I am only making thin prints, but the surface finish matters...

it's so much easier to remove parts by flexing, rather than digging with a spatula

regards Joan
Do you have to remove them before starting a print?

Re: Attaching spring steel more firmly?

Thanks Chris and Joan! Those Swiss Clips look great, if they are mechanically strong. Low profile will help, maybe they could stay on semi-permanently without breaking the PINDA. I used the clips in the photo today, the print is progressing so i'm not certain if they are strong enough, but probably....

Attaching spring steel more firmly?

Is there a good way to tie the spring steel plate down more firmly than the magnet can achieve?

I'm thinking small powerful clips in each corner to prevent the steel from lifting up.

Unfortunately the magnets alone are not doing the job for large, tall and thin diagonal prints :

Re: Slic3r Prusa Edition 1.40.0-beta

> Is there a way to turn on the 'Slice now' button when objects do not fit on the print bed? No. It is an unusual request. You can always extend the bed dimensions. And you can copy the printer profile to yours, where you would have the bed extended, and then once you are ready to print, you may sw...

Re: Flexplate Group Buy

Any chance to make a "somewhat less flex plate"?

My prints are a bit challenging, extreme warping forces bend the flex plate upward in the corners.
I also managed to bent the entire print bed of the MK2 on one occasion....

Heat wear degradation on a silicon sock??? :o
Certainly, if you try to push the limits by printing PC or other high temp filaments. They roast and get brittle.

I suppose you need to allow this port to be open by a non privileged application, or start Slic3r with su. Yes, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS system. I'll try if I can start the Appimage from a console as 'su'. I real...

Re: Flow tuning [persistent

Thank you Joan and John, I found it in the Start g-code: M221 S{if layer_height==0.05}100{else}95{endif} This line (or a similar one) was not present in the previous Slic3r version, or maybe it was, but I had been using my own custom Printer settings including start g-code for a while. Looks like I'...

Flow tuning [persistent

Hi, I have recently assembled the MK3 kit and I have a problem with the Tune>Flow setting not resetting itself. My first print was made from a file sliced for my older Pruse i3 MK2s, and it had a EM 1.05 filament setting in it. This caused over-extrusing half-way throught the 14hr print, which I res...
