Re: Restoring Simplify3D Settings

I don't want to bother learning the new broken version so still on 4.01 which I am very comfortable with.

They are still kicking, and an American Company based in OH. I ordered some ABS a couple weeks ago. This forum has been this inactive as for a while, I purchased my M2 Feb 18 and not much has changed in the forum since then. I agree with your statement about lack of improvement, innovation and build...

Re: M2 - REV G Leveling issues

Well, what all does the harness control.. if you are back to the original board that was not reflashed by you and worked correctly other than no heat (due to wire broken) when it was removed, then the harness or install would seem to be the next most likely issue.

Re: Reprinting Filament Drive. What material should I use?

Those of you who have printed the drive, what position do you place it in on the build plate. Default where it drops or do you alter it? Do you use support? If so do you modify the default support (s3d) and what support infill do you use? Only have an M2 so not dissoluble filament choice and was goi...
