Re: Plywood + Cura Type A ?

In the Linux image that you use, you would need to change your hostname to "series1-0122" as opposed to simply "0122"

Re: Set default to Inches?

I don't see any thing on the Onshape site that will help in exporting STL files in inches from the Keycreator CAD software that I use to Cura. The easy customer solution is to have a selectable option on Cura for mm or inches. Is it difficult to add an automatic multiplier of 25.4 to the STL file i...

Re: Plywood + Cura Type A ?

clarification from previous post, In Cura 1.4.0, when I try to Machine->Add Printer… it expects "Serial number is 4-6 digits". My serial number is 122. "Add Printer" doesn't enable unless it's 4 digits. I prepend a 0, it enables, but when I press "Add Printer" it print...

Re: Set default to Inches?

When I suggested that everyone in CNC uses millimeters, it is because millimeters are practically universal in the US as well as in Europe when it comes to 3D Printing. Sorry if I didn't make that clear. That said, you can export CAD files that are designed in inches to an STL file whose units are i...

Re: What is the proper way to turn off the printer?

At the moment, SSH is the easiest option. Once you have the process down, it gets really easy. In the meantime, your best bet is to either keep the machine on, or turn it off as little as possible. If you turn the machine off and on again, let the machine stay on for as long as possible in between p...

Re: Plywood + Cura Type A ?

The latest version of Cura Type A does not have out-of-the box support for the plywood Series 1 models. However, it's not hard to use the new versions of Cura with 2013 machines or earlier. You'll have to create a new machine profile and enter the specs of the plywood machines manually. These specs ...

Re: Set default to Inches?

Good question - Millimeters are how almost everything in CNC is measured. (Sometimes inches are used on mills and routers, but hardly ever in 3D Printing - in fact I've only seen it happen once for its own sake) When exporting your files to STL, make sure to spec millimeters as your unit of measure ...
