Thank you! Howard did a great job in making most of these showcases. I love the cat for showing the feature of Camera Aid Background, and the clock for showing the multi-model operation. They are so clear and nice :smiley:


#4

Is there a timeline for the next software release that will include these features?


#5

Maybe they are in this new snapmakerjs. . . my apologies if this is not a useful post. I am “catching up”, so to say.


#6

These features are already included in the latest version of Snapmakerjs. You can watch the sample making videos in this update: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/snapmaker/snapmaker-the-all-metal-3d-printer/posts/2447894

Quick question, if I upgrade to latest software version do I have to upgrade the firmware?

So far I’m getting consistent results with a very old software+firmware (never updated!) and I’m afraid I will have to face new issues while upgrading :smile:

I’m mostly interested in the CNC/Laser functions of the new version (as I’m currently using Cura for 3d printing)
