There is a lot of new features in this alpha! I have been using the alpha the last couple of months and it is pretty stable...

Have a look at my designs on Thingiverse or on PrusaPrinters ;)...

Already found my first problem. And it was just as I feared.

I was really please that they introduced 3D mouse support in 2.2.0 and I have ZERO problems with it.. But a lot of people called for "officail" support using the 3DConnexions drivers/config... But as i have a discountinued SpacePilot and knew that this would introduce issues..

And true enough, for me, 3D Mouse suport is now brokne.. I have no control over the speed and it moves around like a snail.. The old config (CTL+M) has gone.. And the official config allows me to change the speed, but it has no effect.

Not happy!!!

Just edit the PrusaSlicer.ini file in the config folder.
search for mouse_device and set the 3 speed values to 10

rotation_deadzone = 0.000000
rotation_speed = 10.000000
swap_yz = 0
translation_deadzone = 0.000000
translation_speed = 10.000000
zoom_speed = 10.000000

zoom_speed = 10.000000

That works.. But where is the PrusaSlicer.ini file?  I thought I knew where the Prusa 'config' directory was, but I am struggling to find it... I hate Windows search.. It never seems to find what I want.

Cheers. I feel like a such an idiot.. Went into c:/users and "searched" for "prusa" and it found nothing.. I HATE Windows search.. After all these years I still don't undersatnd how it works.

rotation_deadzone = 0.000000
rotation_speed = 10.000000
swap_yz = 0
translation_deadzone = 0.000000
translation_speed = 10.000000
zoom_speed = 10.000000

This solution would be awesome.. But there isn't a section for "mouse_device" nor are any of these params mentioned... I will try adding them...

Edit.. Nope.. I added this

[mouse_device]
rotation_deadzone = 0.000000
rotation_speed = 10.000000
swap_yz = 0
translation_deadzone = 0.000000
translation_speed = 10.000000
zoom_speed = 10.000000

 

And its made no difference.

 

Edit2: Just looked at my non-Alpha ini and the settings are/were

 

[mouse_device:3Dconnexion/SpacePilot]
rotation_deadzone = 0.100000
rotation_speed = 5.200000
swap_yz = 0
translation_deadzone = 0.100000
translation_speed = 5.100000
zoom_speed = 5.100000

 

So I tried adding thsi and its made no difference either....

Program configuration files has moved around a lot in Windows through the years, from init files over registry to roaming... And search also "kind of works".

And there is another thread on v2.30 alpha ... a simple forum search would have found it.

https://forum.prusaprinters.org/forum/english-forum-general-discussion-announcements-and-releases/alpha-release-for-prusaslicer-2-3-0-released/

It is always wise to get more than one opinion......

"I thought I knew where the Prusa 'config' directory was, but I am struggling to find it... I hate Windows search.. It never seems to find what I want". Suggest you try Everything (Voidtools.com) and turn off indexing. It reads MFT table directly so only NTFS, although these daya a non-issue. Try it, its freeware and an all round must have piece of software.

@dahuafschmied Any further thoughts about how I might speed up my 3DMouse? Adding settings to thje INI file did nothing...

@jweaver

sorry. no. if there is no mouse_device:????? section in your ini file there is an other problem.

mine look like this:

[mouse_device:VID046D,PIDC626]
rotation_deadzone = 0.000000
rotation_speed = 10.000000
swap_yz = 0
translation_deadzone = 0.000000
translation_speed = 10.000000
zoom_speed = 10.000000

swap_yz = 0
translation_deadzone = 0.000000
translation_speed = 10.000000
zoom_speed = 10.000000

 

in my old ini, it was

 

[mouse_device:3Dconnexion/SpacePilot]
rotation_deadzone = 0.100000
rotation_speed = 5.200000
swap_yz = 0
translation_deadzone = 0.100000
translation_speed = 5.100000
zoom_speed = 5.100000

If I put this into the alpha ini at the bottom, it gets moved to the middle, so PS is taking the info and re-organizing the INI.. But it has no effect on the speed.. The 3DMouse still works perfectly.. But I just have no way to reconfigure it.

If I am honest, I didn't really use the 3DMouse support all that much so I can live without it.. But its a shame its now unusable where as it was PERFECT before 2.3.0

I am not sure if this is a bug, but I can't find a way to 'remove' filament types from my list.

In 2.2.0 the Filamnet pull down had ---System Presets --- at the top..  And ----- Add/Remove filament ----- at the bottom

But in 2.3.0 there is no "----- add/remove filament ------" option, so I have all of the filaments listed and no way to remove them.

In 2.3.0 you can click "---- System Presets ----" at the top which bring you to the setup wizzard.. And here you can play around with Filamnet types.. But you can only add them.. not remove them...

Definitely looks like a bug.  You can delete any custom ones you have on the list, same as you can custom print presets but the system ones cant be deleted.  If Prusa isnt going to allow removing them from the drop downs like previously then running through the wizard again with an option unticked should remove them.

Are you going to open an issue on Github ?

The only way you can bring up a list of Filaments is via the Wizzard.. But this always starts with everythign UNTICKED.. So you can't remove anything.. if you tick them they get added to your list.. But I havn't found a way to "untick" them...
