    Wow, I didn't realize I didn't post that up. You already got all the other high level training from the PC4-M5 salvage thread. I'm having trouble consolidating all this only in the fact that this groove thing appears to be an enigma. Either that or bicycle spokes are going by the way of the dinasour

    Do grind a flat on that spoke for the screw. I still have trouble with these things sliding out of where I want them set. The previous version works pretty good considering it is more rigid. Bottom line is, can you make an effective cutting edge with a nice 2mm wide sharp edge(?) And a lot of people will say ... "I dono" and leave it at that. When, as designer I know that wrangling PTFE in a new and unique way is FREAKIN' HUGE! This takes the wear out COMPLETELY! And no more broken fittings!... yet I digress ;|

    Here's the link... Yes, no reason not to trust that it is the same stock. Check what you get but I don't have any that doesn't pass. Getting it to relax is the biggest chore.

    I'll get back on the grooving tool. How are you groovin' now?

    ...and the prototype set for the groover in STL and cube3.

    Thank You!

    You are the Everready Bunnie of 3D Printing Information...!

    PTFE is ordered.

    As far as groovin', it goes tolerably well using my IKEA grooving tool:

    I recently sharpened and squared up the cutting edge, so it works a little better now.

    Way cool. More or less where I started. The cut is fairly forgiving basically because the circlips are captured.

    You have to wonder if this readiness thing is a healthy thing or not ;p

    Thanks for sharing your grooving tool. I knew Ikea could pull through. I think their entire line is DIY :O

    Anyone heard of FlashPrint? It comes with the new Voxel by Monoprice. It outputs 2 g-codes... .G and GX. GX has some Kanji in it and the .G is simple ascii text, but they run a -very- basic script. There are no retracts on the print file! This may make a good fallback as the software does have an advanced mode. This gives you access to the various slicing parameters. See if this does anything for you...

    support files lower on the page: https://www.monoprice.com/product?c_...seq=1&format=2

    ...and who was nice enough to receive a new printer for xmas?
    New filaments abound?
    A lump of coal in their hot-end?
    All of the above?

    Happy Holidays!

    Oh, and it gets better ... Oh, yea, they killed Cubify

    Re-purposed CubePro




    I can see doing a DIY cintering mod to this one...

    FWIW--

    Here's the code for an example Notepad++ macro which I use to modify a Cube Print-generated PLA .bfb file for a different PLA material. It:
    - changes the first layer temperature from 235 to 220
    - changes the retract lengths (M227 and M228) from 450 to 400 (I'm using the B2B bowden setup.)

    This code is found at C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++\shortc uts.xml in the <Macros> section.

    <Macro name="Cube PLA to MH PLA" Ctrl="no" Alt="no" Shift="no" Key="0">
    <Action type="3" message="1700" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
    <Action type="3" message="1601" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="M104 S235 P1" />
    <Action type="3" message="1625" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
    <Action type="3" message="1602" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="M104 S220 P1" />
    <Action type="3" message="1702" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
    <Action type="3" message="1701" wParam="0" lParam="1635" sParam="" />
    <Action type="3" message="1700" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
    <Action type="3" message="1601" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="M227 P450 S450 G450 F600" />
    <Action type="3" message="1625" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
    <Action type="3" message="1602" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="M227 P400 S400 G450 F600" />
    <Action type="3" message="1702" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
    <Action type="3" message="1701" wParam="0" lParam="1635" sParam="" />
    <Action type="3" message="1700" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
    <Action type="3" message="1601" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="M228 P0 S450" />
    <Action type="3" message="1625" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
    <Action type="3" message="1602" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="M228 P0 S400" />
    <Action type="3" message="1702" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
    <Action type="3" message="1701" wParam="0" lParam="1635" sParam="" />
    </Macro>

    Thought it would be interesting to know how NP++ stores its macros. It's 'modifiable', but not 'programmable' since they use numeric codes to specify actions. This is probably useful information only in a case where you had entered a macro with lots of steps and then realized you put a wrong value in somewhere. You could modify that value in the .xml file rather than having to re-enter the whole macro.

    It's also a way to share macros.

    That is way cool! I suppose there is a guide somewhere with all the codes.
    But the actions are cyclical for every replace so you should be able to simply add other calls in a simple editor.
    And knowing this I know I need to change "400" calls to "350" before I make the "450" call to "400".

    This is exactly what I go through manually in Notepad.

    Any way to start a selection with a shortcut keystroke to select from the cursor to end-of-file? Obviously thinking of removing the image at the end of the file. That way I can preview the Cube3 file with CubePro.

    Try this:

    <Macro name="Remove End Gibberish" Ctrl="no" Alt="no" Shift="no" Key="0">
    <Action type="3" message="1700" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
    <Action type="3" message="1601" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="\0\0\0\0" />
    <Action type="3" message="1625" wParam="0" lParam="2" sParam="" />
    <Action type="3" message="1702" wParam="0" lParam="1792" sParam="" />
    <Action type="3" message="1701" wParam="0" lParam="1723" sParam="" />
    <Action type="0" message="2319" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
    <Action type="0" message="2180" wParam="0" lParam="0" sParam="" />
    </Macro>

    That translates to:
    - Open Replace dialog (menu Search > Replace... )
    - Select Regular Expression (radio button in Search Mode box at the bottom left)
    - Put \0\0\0\0 in the Find box (four null characters)
    - Click the >> button (find next)
    - Close the Replace dialog
    - Press Ctrl+Shift+End (the End key is usually near Home, Page Up, Page Down) - ** this selects from cursor to EOF. **
    - Press Delete

    It leaves one blank line at the bottom, but that won't hurt anything.

    Based on a quick check of some files, I believe the Gibberish Block always begins with 4 nulls. It that isn't true, it may be sufficient to find just the first null.
