This update gives you the ability to adjust the strength of the object you want to print, an option to enable expert mode as well as stability improvements. Please continue reading for more detailed explanation.
You may have already noticed that we pushed an update to your printer earlier this week. This update mainly focused on fixing issues from the previous update and increasing stability of the system.
We have just released the new web-app with support for changing infill when printing your own STL file. We have made three different stages of infill. Since infill determines mainly the strength of the object (and of course how much filament is used) we have chosen to call this parameter Strength to make it accessible to people that have never used a 3D printer before. When printing your own STL file you will also experience that the interface now consists mainly of buttons. We hope this helps with making the process faster and most of all easier to grasp for both skilled 3D printers and newcomer’s a like.
The app also houses support for printing your own g-code. When you have activated expert-mode a new option under Print own STL file in the Printer utilities called Print g-code (expert) will appear.
The new web-app is online now (https://app.sculpto.dk), but please allow 24 hours for the update of the android app to be available and 3 days for the iOS app.
You can now enable expert mode for your printer. This will make it possible to print raw g-code on your Sculpto 3D printer. When enabled it cannot be disabled and we will always be able to see that you have enabled expert mode.
PLEASE NOTICE THAT WE STRONGLY ADVISE AGAINST ENABLING EXPERT MODE SINCE USING IT CAN SEVERELY DAMAGE YOUR PRINTER. PLEASE READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY.
When you print g-code using expert mode the printer automatically heats up and running the start sequence like you know from printing your own STL or when printing a model from the app. This heats the hot-end to 200 degrees Celsius and then the start sequence begins with the probing of the print bed and extruding in the perimeter of the build plate. This means that we have injected the offsets that is unique to your printer and you don’t have to worry about the offsets when printing your own g-code. After the start sequence it will automatically start printing the g-code that you have uploaded to your printer. Please be very careful where you place center in your slicer and the size of the buildplate. We cannot advice on this since it is different from slicer to slicer. The build space is 20 centimeters in diameter and 16 centimeters in height.
If you wish to enable expert mode please go to https://app.sculpto.dk/#!/expert. Please make sure to be logged into the web-app with the user that owns the printer you wish to enable expert mode on otherwise you will not be able to proceed.
If you experience problems then please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org – to let us now about the issue. We will try to fix it as soon as possible.
