Re: Simplify3D Profile for MakerGear M3-SE Needed

I tried the MakerGear M2 (24V V4 hotend) printer profile in Simplify3D for my new M3-SE and it worked great. Thanks!

The printer comes with instructions regarding how to use OctaPrint with an open source slicer but I didn't see any instructions for Simplify3d printer settings.
