Hi Snapmakers!
I wonder if any of you sucessfully use slic3r instead of Cura/Simplify3D or Snapmaker3D.
It would be great if anybody of you was able to reproduce the original SnapMaker3D settings for Fast/Norn/HighQuality as a starting point.

I love the ability to store the config on a network share, having seperate configs for printer, filament and print as well as directly printing to OctoPrint.
However I seem to struggle with the many settings so far and get rather random results.

Anybody has some settings to share?`

Thx & BR

Filament winding around the driver gear?

by Jmd3

Has anyone had this problem? I have had the snapmaker for a long time. I have one of the Limited ones. #104/200 . Just this I had to take the print module completely apart. The Filament was wrapped around the driver gear? it jammed and the motor got so hot I almost burned my hand.
I attached 2 photos.. 1 shows the Filament problem. the other shows a plastic spacer that came out snapped. I glued it together and re-installed it. I am going to print a replacement for it. I am wondering if anyone has had this filament issue.

Let me add that this has happened not at the beginning of a print but 2 or 3 hours into a print that was working perfectly. Both times the print started fine but a few hours in I would find it not printing but still moving.. and super hot the motor was trying to move but it was jammed,.
