    I'm looking for calls.
    These DLL's and associated XML calls are what make use of the data in a handful of files.
    Wrap an app around that and you have everything you need to convert BFB to CUBE3.

    These contain 3D System's official BFB conversion.

    And we have a reference app! 3DBuilder is the app that uses these files in their "print" subroutine.

    MS_3d_sdk.zipsomehow I broke windows 10 3d builder.

    But I did find this... THIS is the 3D printing development kit!
    For some reason it won't let me upload the full folder.

    These are the 3DS files in the spool folder.

    According to the DSK, you just point the spooler at these
    By editing the included XML references.

    doesn't all this say we should be able to send a BFB though this spooler?

    And to top all this off... I am now convinced more than ever that 3D Systems hobbled the cube in their latest firmware/Cubify.


    All the development with Microsoft began very early. For some reason, Marvin prints better in ABS from 3D Builder than from CubePrint.

    The default settings coming out of 3D Builder did a beautiful job on Marvin where Cubify would curl the edges and begin working in a semi-molten mess
    if you let it.

    Even the seems are nicer! It managed the loop perfectly! Yet another enigma!

    Another interesting observation; the .3MF files are zip files. Just rename the .3MF to .ZIP.

    The facet model has a .model file extension. This is the file that gets processed for printing.

    here are the rest of the files...

    Anybody know what the code is for x and y movement speed?

    In the code G1 the F is the movement speed, not the feed rate. The 108 code controls the feed rate. This of course applies to Bfb code only. The speed is in mm/minute

    So if I adjust the speed, I would also need to adjust the feed rate (m108)?

    For example, if I change the speed from F1800.0 to F900.0 (half), I assume I would need to change the feed rate from M108 S7.0 to M108 S3.5.

    Basically yes.

    I don't remember if you have to stop the extruder with a 103, change the speed, then start it again with 101/201.

    The M103 and M101 are already there before and after the M108. So I would say you are correct.

    Thanks again!

    You welcome Tommy ,, I made a lot of tests yesterday I found that using ABS with 3dbuilder is much better as you said but when I print PLA with cube or 3d builder I get the same results

    You are ahead of me then. I haven't done PLA with 3D builder yet.
    So Marvin is still failing the loop in 3D Builder when using PLA?

    The big difference of 3D Builder on ABS is that it doesn't pause at the end of a trace.
    This is when ABS swells in size and it remains gooey when the next layer is placed.

    Remember the purple Minion? That is what Marvin at 70um was looking like before it even finished.
