    So, the last list we talked about:

    • Add Sidewalk/Support checkboxes (this is done and needs to be tested, and I will push it up tonight).
    • Drop down lists for Version, MinVersion, Printer Model.
      • I was thinking of modifying the UI, to change the order of the version fields and model field. so that when you select the printer model to CUBE3, EKO, or CubePro, it automatically sets the corresponding version in the Version and MinVersion. If you type something in the model field that doesn't match any of CUBE3, EKO, or CubePro, then it leaves the Version and MinVersion blank

    • Adding a Global percentage change for Extrusion pressures ( negative percentage for decrease, positive percentage for increase)
    • Change image in combined file to be my icon (to show that this file is modified from original) -- now if I could just figure out the MRL file format.
    • Help for command line usage. This is scattered throughout the forum, but I should make sure that each of the utilities has this implemented.



    Did I miss any?

    For the Extrusion pressure change, there would be a script change that would go with it. I think I mentioned that previously as well.

    Here is the previous list

    I think you got it. 1 is a fit and finish. So far I had not been able to make anything error with these values being different. The info read-back in the apps is the only place I see the material calls for support and sidewalks.

    Drop downs, yes, very useful for lazy people

    Pressure change percentage... high on my personal list for CubePro

    Icon is CubePro only and a specific instance (cube/eko going to cubepro). This can be very low on the list as we can output the file without an image even with WiFi. Consider maybe removing CubePro output conversion support directly and look at a stand-alone app to convert Cube3 to Pro. CubePro can be a very low priority in this regard.

    MRL files are probably an alpha channel file. However, MRL is also what all the other 'commands' are called in the firmware folder IIRC. Something has to be throwing 'elevation status' from the print file; something like the time stamps weighed against the total time in the header. When you watch this on a cubepro printer, it glitches all over the place. Very poor implementation indeed!

    I find application help to be the one thing that bites most people over time. Kind of like the grinch... solve world hunger and then don't tell anyone. I'd say this is a priority. Solving world hunger, that is.

    Understood on the script change.

    new version posted.

    First, Second and 5th bullets addressed. Please let me know if you find any anomalies. Each executable now will take -help, /help. -? and /? to get to the help screen. Dropdown for printer model shows CUBE3, EKOCYCLE and CUBEPRO. The Firmware and MinFirmware fields will change accordingly. If you enter a value into the model that is not in the drop down list, like cube3, then firmware and minfirmware are cleared.

    The checkboxes for sidewalks and supports are also there and will update the XML and BFB. The logic to only allow each to be assigned to only one color is implemented.

    The other bullet I want to add is to get a version on this thing.

    Had an interesting thought... and merely a though mind you;

    "Z-Shift" - Infinite Cube3 layer thickness.

    Say you want to cut the 200um layer to 100um...
    You would unilaterally scale your model up to 200% in Z in MeshMixer.
    And replace all the Z-values, after the first, to half it's original value in the print file.

    Want to start with a little more gap; change all Z-values by "N".

    Want 300 micron layers? scale the part in Z at 66.66% and increment Z at 150%

    Whatever the scaling factor, the pressure (M108) moves by some factor.

    Okay, Cube3 uses 0.1925mm per layer so percentages are based on this.
    Of course, a 70 micron print can be applied similarly.

    Oh, interesting. And that actually makes some sense. I assume that the movement commands are affected by this, but which ones? How would the M108 be affected?

    M108 changes are based on less material to deposit... theory would be an equal percentage to the height change.

    Most of the housekeeping commands are M5xx. They have their own code for positions based on calibration settings. There are -out of bound- signatures for wipes but that Z value isn't critical as it is mostly just for a very generous clearance.
