Yeah just saying they should check it, make changes if needed, upload new file.

All the hot ends are the same so the default extrusion width should be >0.35m but certainly not as as high as 1.0mm. Something that high is sure to result it bad prints (3x tip diameter)

We just started digging back into other slicers and thought to see what the Make Test was about and what files they would have used... discovered what we would call poor settings. Not that we are pros or anything just from using this machine specifically.

- 2 cents.

As far as I know, Type A Machines has never officially supported Slic3r. They used KISSlicer for the 2013 machines, and Cura for the 2014 and 2015 machines.
