Very nice video, you make it easy enough I just may go for it.
Can I still use Simplify3D with repetier or do you recommend another software.
Also is 0.92 the latest for my 1.0A printer, I thought I saw in another post there was a 0.92A.
I think it is the same, they may be wanted to say a 0.92 Alpha as it is still in alpha, I did not turn yet to beta - I will do soon I think.
Personnaly I use Simplify, compared to repetier host/Cura it is better, more setting and the support management is perfect!
but usb communication is better with repetier host, or using SD Card - no progress on printer with simplify - only on computer
but using wifi SDCard and Simplify is excellent per my experience
Well I did it! Installed repetier on my 1.0A.
Everything went very smooth, took a little time recalibrating the bed and making
some start and ending code for Simplify3D.
Printed out a couple of models.
It sure is nice having full machine control in S3D.
I printed one by USB, another by uploading through the USB to the micro sd card, both ways worked great.
Was notified that S3D just came out with a new version today while I was messing around with it.
When printing from the SD card and you pause the print it goes to the right front.
This makes very hard to swap the filament color.
Is there an way to change this?
use the position menu to move the head in place you want (move X back)
I can't speak to S3D as I have opted for cura/octoprint but I did notice a 2-5 second pause every once in a while when I was using repetier host. It came down to the cache (should be 202) not being set correctly in the printer settings. The computer would send more commands than the printer could store and it would start skipping commands. I also removed the usb cable from a power usb hub and plugged directly into the computer and it seemed to go away. I haven't noticed any issues after switching to octoprint on the raspberry pi but it may be because the cable isn't stretched around several other high powered electronics like it was when coming from my computer.
Did you changed something in the firmware related to the cache ?
I am plugged directly into the usb port of my PC. No hub.
maybe I should try to slice using S3D and communicate using Cura.
Luc,,, after flashing the printer with repetier, as shown in the video, what else has to be done, either firmware/software modifications in order to start printing successfully? I've read that the are eeprom changes, heater temp table changes/recalibrating, and specific file revisions (whithin repetier host) and of course recalibrating the bed in the Z direction. I want to start off using repetier host, and then maybe switch to S3D.
These questions are my only concerns for not re-flashing my printer at this time. I want to totally understand what I'm getting into before I jump in, as I know this can be very frustrating.
I am still having issues with communicating to the printer, either in RH or S3D. The printer just doesn't communicate back it seems.
What GCode start and end changes were made above to get prints to work?
BTW, I used the video above to Flash.
It is so frustrating to have the firmware on the printer fine, but can't print???????????
Need start code please.
I am going to try and add in the Octiprint solution also to see if that works.
I just worry since I can't even get Repetier host to work right.
