#2

To turn off Auto-slice go to preferences. It will slice when you press start. Works great.


#3

When I import gcode from Simplify3D it says the object is bigger then the build plate, I am back to 9.1 again.


#4

I just tested with several stl files all work perfectly. maybe something with the stl file. Try a different file and see if the same thing happens. It could be how you encoded the file in simplify3d.


#5

Don’t use this version if you want to use Draw or Cut functions. The imported SVG file is blank.


#6

Having the same problem, the thing I’m trying to print is well within the size constraints.


#7

Still no laser support with this version?

Hangs on uploading F code still? WIFI

Using 0.9.0 even on WIFI it seems to be working fine.

Using the laser a lot now, almost daily. Wish it was faster.

Mainly wood and MDF (medium density fiberboard) I have some cork I may use as well.

Had to move the flux into the toilet room of my office because of the smell/ allergies to the smoke from the engraving. I need a fume hood.

That is why I had to reset the WIFI and why I downloaded the new version of the software.


#8

What are you engraving? Photos? Shading on? How do you create svg? I want to using it more often, but struggled a bit sometimes


#9

I’d been using the Cura slicer in FLUX Studio, but as mentioned in other threads, it’s been removed from the latest FS releases.

If I don’t babysit the printer, the filament just jams, and the extruder grinds a flat in it, and I have to take off the bowden tube fitting to get it out.
Anyone else?

I think it’s related to retraction. The new slicer does a ton of retractions compared to what I’m used to, and the distance seems really high for PLA, I think it’s something like 8mm.

At the moment I am doing most line art things that I make in PSCC then save as PNG making sure to have really really clean lines and also making sure the file size is exactly what I want the machine to produce. The “working” version 0.9.0 I am using does not like to resize the images at all.

I do not bother changing the colour settings before saving the images. So I do get some shading.

I am actually really pleased with my recent results.

Consider that it is basically the same level as an old impact dot printer and I think you will not be annoyed that much.

I have done photos. That required a lot of prep on the images to get anything close to nice results.
The media creates very different results too: woods are all different with the burn rates etc.
