RE: Simplify3D (S3D) settings for the Original Prusa printers

Hi,

My mk3s kit has just been assembled. Before Prusa, I was using s3d. However, I've added that profile and slice it. Starts printing without waiting for heating, am I missing something?

https://prnt.sc/vnlkb0

S3D version: 4.1.2

MK3s firmware: 3.9.1

@doktor

Same situation - just finished building the printer. With S3D, prints don't wait for temperature. Did you ever get a reply or a fix to your post?

No, as you can see. But doesn t a problem. You can use custom gcode for waiting few minutes before printing. I haven t tried yet.

With the advances in other slicers I haven't used Simplify 3D much in over a year, but I recall that it looks for nozzle and bed heating commands in the start gcode (e.g., M104, M109) and if those are missing, inserts them. I believe this is controlled with the Wait for temperature controller to stabilize before beginning build setting under Temperatures. If you don't have those commands in your custom gcode, you likely need to enable this setting. There may be situations where it doesn't properly identify those gcode commands. 

Sorry I can't recall the specifics. I've got some example S3D start gcode here that you can compare. Suffice to say that once you get it set up correctly, Simplify 3D can be used with the Prusa printers just fine.

You need to add Custom GCode. ie


M190 S[first_layer_bed_temperature] ; wait for bed temp\n
M109 S[first_layer_temperature] ; wait for extruder temp\n

RE: Simplify3D (S3D) settings for the Original Prusa printers

I have the temperatures for Simplify 3D set as follows:

M104 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0} ; set extruder final temp
M109 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0} ; wait for extruder final temp
M190 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0} ; wait for bed final temp

Note the curly braces ({}) used for shortcuts in S3D rather than square brackets ([]) used in PrusaSlicer.
