Re: Brand new to 3d printing and having a few issues with M3-ID rev. 1

Brian, wow, just saw this post and am very surprised no one has spoken up so far. Were you able to get this sorted out? I am also a new M3-ID owner and I did have some similar issues with T1 banging into T0. I think I solved this by using a different printer profile I downloaded from MakerGear's Git...

Re: Does M2 Marlin Firmware Support "Stealth Mode"?

On my Prusa MK3, you select stealth mode on the printer screen. On my M2 screen, I don't see any setting that would be equivalent so I don't think it's part of the firmware. Same with on my M3.

Re: Prusaslicer 2.x

Regarding saving project as a 3MF as opposed to exporting configs: I use 3MF saves more especially when I'm printing multiple objects that need careful placement on the bed. It saves everything like custom supports, modifiers, all the work I did. I save configs when I have some settings I will be us...

Re: Prusaslicer 2.x

Sweet! Thanks for the tutorial link. I agree - there are some printer settings that are better off in the print settings. I'm sure you already figured out that you can save each of the setting groups individually for later use. If I make a lot of changes to all groups I want to retrieve for certain ...

Re: PrusaSlicer 2.0 settings

@airscapes I experienced similar print quality increases when using PS compared with S3D. If you have the latest PS versions, the monotonic top infill pattern makes for a much nicer top finish and it gets even nicer with ironing enabled (though at the expense of drastically increased print time). Ri...

Re: PrusaSlicer 2.0 settings

Well I've been working on getting the M3-ID to work with PrusaSlicer off and on since I purchased the printer a month or so ago. The profile package that the OP supplied does not work for anything except single extruder mode. And it looks like they are not active anymore so no idea if they made the ...

Re: 1st layer squish printing PETG

I am very new to MakerGear printers so apologies if this sounds too newbie. With PETG, I have always found it much easier to work with flexible build plates. On my M3-ID, I have been using the textured magnetic flexible plate that PartsBuilt offers (not the buildtak model, the cheaper one). The othe...

Re: PrusaSlicer 2.0 settings

@jk42 I have had sporadic instances with multiple extruder prints sliced using either the stock M3-ID profile that comes with S3D in addition to the profiles you provide on your GitHub repository where the tool fails to heat, tries to prime and is stopped by the cold extrusion warning. Additionally,...

Re: LCD enclosure files anywhere?

Are the M3 LCD enclosure files you use available on your GitHub? I can't find them. I did find out this is a standard Nextion display but if you had files already, that would save me some time with redesigning it so it can be mounted to the printer or enclosure.

Re: LCD enclosure files anywhere?

Is the display a Nextion 3.5-inch? I understand you don't have files for a mount that attaches to the printer. I was hoping for the files you do have so that I can work with them to make something that works better for me. If not, no big deal, I'll get them from Nextion or just design one myself.
