Two Filaments Going into One Nozzle

Please see attached image. Something has happened, widened I should say, whenever my filament runs out or snaps due to its dryness for being out too long and when I put the same filament back in or a new filament, both pieces of filament are somehow now able to fit in the same hole going to the nozz...

Print Boundaries Explained?

This relates to an earlier post I made regarding the maximum print height for a MakerGear M2 & Simplify 3D (please see attached). I wanted to know if Simplify 3D will inform me if my print is too far beyond print parameters going off the bed but above the first layer that the print exceeds the bed w...

Re: Maximum Print Height for MakerGear M2 V4 in Simplify 3D?

Bump? (Don't know if that's allowed here and if it's not, my apologies!) Just would like to know the answer to this guy as this has been controlling everything I print!
