I did not, and that fixed my issue. Thank-you!
When I create a Text Object, I cannot use the keyboard arrow keys (left right up down) to move the text object.
I have noticed that when selecting a slower first level (I use 10mm) that it only applies to the print and not the add on’s (Brim, Raft, etc.) I tried to make a print with Brim and the outer section of the Brim worked great but it printed at full speed and not the selected speed for first layer. Is this a bug or as expected?
Hi! You have to set the speed setting for the brim manually in the config file. you need to change the “default_value” of the parameter “skirt_brim_speed”. I use 15mm/s
Awesome thanks!!! The outer brim seems to work but the software does brim on inner holes and it goes at lightning speed and does not adhere to the surface it just smears. Will slow it down.
Bug in CNC Carver
Adding two of the same image, one with “Outline” and the other with “Fill” do not compliment each other.
As you can see from the image (and yes, the resulting carved output is in fact just as crappy), the “Fill” carve extends OUTSIDE the Outline lines.
If I do a “Fill” at the resolution required for the round edges, the carving will take 8 hours, and the outline is pointless.
If I do an “Outline”, the carving takes 30 minutes, but there is “fill” left between the outer and inner lines. I can’t win.
I’m expecting the “Fill” to only carve within the “Outline” area. I think the problem is that the “Fill” path does not care about the Outline path and takes 8 hours to complete because it’s going up line by line rather than by the paths already established for “Outline” (just progressively closing in)
As a feature request, I would like a “Delete Infill” within the “Outline” area so that it follows the same path and can be completed in 1/8th the time of a “Fill” pathing.
I tried to edit the number of lines for the BRIM from 20 to 15 and it has no affect. The default is now 15 but it still prints 20 lines. Am I missing something? Is the calculation overriding the default number of Brim Lines?
Did you restart Snapmakerjs after you changed the value? (snapmakerjs only reads the file on start up).
The Brim count also has to do with the following parameters: “Support Brim Width”, “support_brim_line_count”, “skirt_brim_minimal_length”, “brim_width” (brim_width should be brim_line_count * 0,4)
Yup after restart the speed is slower but trying to figure out how to cut out the number of brim lines. Must be In the calculation so it’s still doing 20 or it’s somewhere else. Went thru the entire file and checked all spots. The brim so far has been exactly 20 lines for every print I have done even though the number is 15 in the config file.
It works for me if I change the “brim_line_count” parameter “default value” to 15 (line 4602) it works for me
…it seems to work even without restarting snapmakerjs
Found the issue. I use Notepad++ to edit GCode for my CNC machines and you have to be in Administrator Mode when you open a locked file to be able to edit it and save it. So I was changing the number to 15 saving it and then apparently it’s not really saved so 20 continued to show up. So I unlocked the file changed it to Brim 15 and BINGO… It’s now at 15… go figure.
Thanks for the help… ! ! !
Another issue with SnapmakerJS in using the laser function. I can upload a background picture frame then using theText feature add a name, such as
if I click outside the text box it is impossible to reacquire the text to move it as it selects the background picture. I have to move the background out of the way to get to the Text. Do you have a a smarter way of handling the layers?
Also when creating a Text box the widget on the right side appears so as to tailor the text. When you click outside the text box, this widget disappears
You need to update the SnapmakerJS User Manual to reflect recent changes such as the inclusion of TEXT and FILL feature
I just found that if you right-click an image you can send it to the background or bring it to the front… this solves my problem… this needs to be in the Help file.
When you pause a Laser job (tested with 1,6 W) the Laser turns off but it doesn’t come back on resume.
Updated from 2.5.4 to 2.5.5 on windows 10 64
- All saved print settings once again lost on update
- Custom material settings still not being saved
- Can no longer click and drag models into snapmakerjs.
- Copy and paste not working at all, both keyboard (ctrl-c and ctrl-v) and using edit menu do not work.
Things I tried to fix
- Tried uninstall/reinstall, no fix
- Removed all existing config data (that json file), no fix
- Running as admin, no fix
- rolled back to 2.5.4 (was difficult for some reason) at least copy paste and click and drag work again.
So new version appears less functional and breaks rollback to older version that works better.
Settings made to the program should be saved (auto-preview, widget settings open/closed/disabled,…)
Can you clarify what function you were using, the 3D print or Laser ?
I am using v2.5.5 on W10 64 and I was able to drag and drop an STL file into the 3D print function and an image into the laser function.
I agree copy and paste will not work
I have not tried save settings as yet
I was using the 3D print function. When I rolled back to 2.5.4 drag and drop worked fine suggesting its an issue in 2.5.5
Just downloaded and installed the newest version on my PC and it will not open. It is showing in Task Manager but never opens the program. I installed the 2.5.5 64 bit on my Windows 10 and all other previous versions did not do this. I uninstalled, restarted and installed again and it still shows as running within the task manger but no program opens up.
