    It's been years since I posted. I used the Cube3 when the pandemic started last year to print PPE for hospital workers. I finally finished a Mod I've wanted to do for years literally.

    I usually don't respond at all to these sort of things and only offer my facts, judgement, experience and help when I can.

    Cal (auto or manual) sets the zero point, then every layer is indexed from that same zero point.
    0.02mm seems reasonable, even if the mylar is also 0.02, the RMS is 0.028.

    Yes I'd think gap gauge non-sticker portion for those that can't do autocal is the right starting point.
    Everyone else that can get autocal to work should be able to use autocal.
    I think that is...

    Hi all,
    I think there is some debate about gap settings. Gap fixes only first layer and there are more robust ways to fix this with the BFB tweaker python code working on top of S3D profiles. Also...

    3DS uses 0.5mm which is calculated with a little trig from BFB code directly from CubePrint. I think you inadvertently helped fusing by using smaller spacing. My S3d profiles are set to match...

    In many cases stock PLA through CubePrint outer layer can be peeled from the second layer, so even the baseline needs a little tuning. I don't think this is an artifact of my nozzles, I think you'll...

    Sorry Tommy, actually not related menus in general. Much like G codes, these special M codes tell the firmware what to tell the hardware to do. I'll answer on the BFB code thread a little more.
