I have a snapmaker 2.0 A350, and am playing around with making some Christmas themed things. I was hoping there was a way to make a print where I could print a small cylinder with red PLA as a base, and then print some lettering on top of that in green. I was planning to load each model into Luban separately, print the red base first, change out the material, and then tell Luban to print the green lettering starting at +1mm in the z direction. My first question is would that work. And the second is how do I adjust the Z axis location in Luban? I get a Arrow that looks like I can drag it in that direction, but it always snaps back 0. If it matters, I’m using Fusion 360 for my 3D modeling.
Thanks. I found another way that seems to work alright. I created a body in Fusion 360 that was split to cause a small block to be printed up to the height I wanted, and then would move to print over top of the different colored base: Imgur: The magic of the Internet. I just made sure to tell Luban not to generate any support when slicing, and it printed out ok.
So I did try the M600 addition today without much success. I had a single model, added M600 after the top layer of the first color. That did cause the snapmaker to pause. It moved the print head to the bottom left, but gave no indication or ability to change the filament. I was expecting to see the filament run-out screen on the touchpad, but all I got was the typical screen it shows with the percent complete and the pause and stop buttons. I thought maybe I had to hit the pause button first, so I did, but that completely broke the print - had to kill power to the printer as the touchscreen would no longer respond to the buttons.
You do have the latest firmware?
Just wanted to double check, because M600 wasn’t recognized until a couple versions ago. (Will technically it did recognize it and would pause, but there’s no way to resume)
Heh - I just realized to check that right after I posted. I’m not sure what version I have, but I think that’s the likely culprit. I don’t think I’ve updated since M600 became recognized. I’m in the middle of a print right now, but will check the firmware version once it’s finished.
