How to print on dual extrusion with the Mprint software?
#2

#3

is this for windows XP?
I do not see Mprint to support Mbot3d cube


#4

yeah ,the new software can’t be used on the XP system
for cube ,you can try to use this software choose Grid II (17)


#5

How do I print an object using both extruders, like the traffic cone on the Mprint page.


#6

you can check the PDF file attached .
you can set which part use which nozzle


#7

What is the difference between “Grid II 17” and " Grid II"?
When will be a MacOSx of the MPrintSoftware available? (Make it available to the AppStore and I think you will have more sold MBot Units).

Cheers


#8

“17” means the synchronous wheel in the printer is with 17 teeth
you can check the picture attached to see the difference

and thanks for your suggestion about the MacOS software ,we will bring it out later ,it’s in the schedule now .


#9

Link doesn’t work. Could be the odd characters in the URL


#10

Ca not use Grid II (17) do not let me change from Grid II i have to pull the USB out so i can change printer model but when i connect buck the USB and connect to the printer goes back to Grid II .
by the way there is not a disconnect on the menu


#11

mkcreta: Have you tried with another release? (or which release do you use?)

MBot: It would be nice to post all Versions and their corresponding Change to the precursor. Thanks in advance :wink:

#14

Will gcode made with Mprint work with the original Mbot3D dual head. The one I have is almost 2 years old and would like to use something that prepares the files faster and or better than the replicator G 0040 software. Any suggestions on what I should use?


#15

of course ,yes ,choose the machine type with (17) .then try to adjust the distance when you are print a model ,slow down the speed (click left button and choose change speed ) ,make sure it can print a good raft .then printer will remember the distance ,the next time you don’t need to change it


#16

some bugs what I find:

  • When you save your work at mprint default forder is always binary directory, not user dir or last used directory(as in file open dialog)
  • When you export work default forder is always binary directory
  • 1.0.3 beta have wrong versio number in about screen (1.0.2) in help -> about as Bycycle already report. (yeah https://s3.amazonaws.com/mbotusbucket/Software/MPrint1.0.3+(Beta).exe really gives still software with 1.0.2 about window and yeah it is same link what is in http://www.mbot3d.com/software)
  • with large job export make “crash to desktop” after save file selection
  • if you dont have any items selected in work area save does not save anything but it does not also give any error
  • If you add multiple items to work area and save it will save only last selected item

#17

About that crash to desktop. I note that there is event at windows event log:

Just a question:
MBot is doing Money with the Hardware and the Filaments. Why don’t you get in touch with Slic3r and pay a a small Money to include your System in their program? You could win on multiple side

  1. less time and Money Investment in something you don’t get Money and you may not have the full ressources. So you could invest more time for new product and marketing
  2. More market Penetration, as Slic3r will passively do Advertising for you (and you for them).
  3. Stable Software, open source. good product.
  4. new Software Feature from the market would be automatically available for MBot

Would that be an idea?

best regards


#19

Hi Bycycle,

It’s a good idea, we will contact with Slic3r with this.
Thank you.

Thanks jeffkyjin
I think the “main” issue with the current Version of MPrint is about the static support of the print object. It is obvious that the support needs to be removed after printing. The layer between raft and support is peeling of very well. But not the one between Support and object. In fact, the support is kind of part of the object. Therefore, the print path layout needs to be (as soon as possible) be and have less sticking material between support and object.

Looking Forward for your next version.
Best regards
