Simplify3d firmware configuration file



  • I am just trying to get started printing but I am lost in the weeds a bit, on the gillion setting and macros. Does anyone have firmware configuration file for the duet that is already tuned up that they would be willing to export for me, so I can import it.
    thanks

    I am not clear about the need for macros, for things like part cooling etc.



  • What type & size of printer do you have ?? as I use S3D but its tuned for a DBot coreXY printer, so maybe useless for your application.



  • Are you looking for a Simplify3d Process file? Or a Simplify3d Factory file? Or a working config.g for Duet/RepRap?

    And, for any of those, what printer?



  • I have the config file more or less under control for the duet. I is the firmware file for simply3d. *.frm. There is an export/import option in S3d firmware configuration. (located under tools).

    I have a 400x400x600 unfortunately all of my axis designs are a little different from any build out there. Looking at it, it looks like a corexy D bot build. However the x & y use a "zipper" belt drive. This is where 2 belts face each other in a raceway to provide rack and pinion type of control, only with belts. It is very fast and accurate over long distances and avoids, long complicated belts.

    The z drive uses 3 12mm threaded rods driven by one motor to move and the plate is held on a frame that provides rigidity by 4 sets of wheels that run inside the post of the open builds v-slot frame. The open builds frame has panels attached to the outside to form an enclosure, with thermostatically controlled fans.

    I am using E3d V6 hot end with bowden Bondtech QR extruder. One head at the moment, though I have a dual print head carriage. I have a part cooling fan also.



  • I've never found it necessary to change Simplify3D's "Tools" > "Firmware Configuration" default "RepRap (Marlin/Repetier/Sprinter)" in any way. Also, unique printer mechanics should not need any changes here; this file is about the syntax of various G and M commands.

    Or, perhaps a more basic answer is: Select "RepRap (Marlin/Repetier/Sprinter)" and don't change anything else.

    Sounds like a nifty printer. Also sounds like you've got the Duet config working. For Simp3D, dimensions and homing directions under the "G-Code" tab of your processes, and any start/end scripts you want, should cover it. As stated above, almost never a need to change anything in the actual "firmware profile".



  • What about controlling part cooling fans?
    Here is my printer - (with failing paneldue)

    By default, Simplify3D will use M106, which Duet accepts. So everything under the "cooling" tab "just works"

    Do you need it to do something else?
