Slic3r profiles?

by aciim


Could someone provide usable and tested profile-bundle to start with?

I have had many problems with stringing, retractions etc... Simplify3D makes really pretty prints... but managing profiles is horrible.

The Anycubic i3 Mega is absolute trash

by bobrusso13

This thing is absolute garbage. Only starts printing like every 20th try. Mostly sits there looking stupid. Anyone disagree?

Problem with first layer

by FepePungi

Hi guys
Recently I tried printing this wide object on my Anycubic i3 Mega and I noticed that the first layer doesn't look very good. Can anybody point what is causing this problem? Before I was printing only smaller things and there were no such issue.

Pause Script without additional hardware?

by EdBenny

Very new to 3D printing, but was hoping to utilise a pause at height or pause at layer option to change filament at a certain point for dual colour printing. When Cura's option did not seem to work I started looking into G-Code and was able to make a basic script that would move to X0 Y0, and +10Z and pause so I could manually change filament. However, there does not seem to be a way to restart a paused print from the printer itself when stopped this way.

A few things I have read here and elsewhere all recommend software like Octoprint or Astroprint to be able to send the resume G-Code, my problem is the printer is in a separate room from any computer, the only laptop I have is a Chromebook that can run Android apps, although I could salvage my old Chromebook, but don't really want to fork out for some additional hardware without testing it works (going to borrow a raspberry pi in a few weeks hopefully to try it)

Any suggestions about if this is possible or failing that does anyone use any combination of these things to achieve a dual colour print?
