I am much more familiar with Simplify 3d and use it for all my other machines. I tried duplicating the settings from Prusa Slicer to S3D but I must have missed something because it wasn't printing quite right. Thought I'd check here and see if anyone has one they can share.

Same issues here. Tried even copying scripts from prusa slicer, the mini didn't like that!

Don't have a mini, but a lot of the "magic" in S3D is hidden in the gcode. Slice a part in PrusaSlicer, open the gcode in a text editor extract any of the startup gcode and particularly the hardware M20x commands and copy it over. The rest of the settings should be printer-independent.

Shouldn't company making S3D take care of putting profiles in? It is paid program and wasn't this one of value propositions, that it has many profiles for various printers that you can download?

The true is that support of Simplify3D really sucks and unfortunately keep promises... 😏 

Next fail is, that current owners have to buy update to new version as well.

Same boat here.

No success yet?

@alex-t3 Hi everyone, I copied the gcode from prusaslicer and pasted it into simplify3d but now when the temperature drops to 170 degrees to level the bed start printing at 170 degrees and don't raise the temperature. someone knows why ?

The placeholder variables are different between PrusaSlicer and Simplify 3D. You can't just copy startup gcode over verbatim. In particular, you need to replace the PrusaSlicer placeholders for bed temperature and nozzle temperature with their S3D equivalents. I've listed the S3D versions on this page(incomplete notes). If you'd care to upload or paste what gcode you're attempting to use here, we can take a look at it and possibly make further suggestions.

@bobstr

Thank you very much for answering, the joy I have copied is this:
I've changed the temperature because if it doesn't start printing at bed levels.
I also had to check the box ( relative extrusion distances) if it didn't give problems with the speed.

G90 ; use absolute coordinates

M83 ; extruder relative mode

M104 S243 ; set extruder temp for bed leveling

M140 S[first_layer_bed_temperature] ; set bed temp

M109 R243; wait for bed leveling temp

M190 S[first_layer_bed_temperature] ; wait for bed temp

G28 ; home all without mesh bed level

G29 ; mesh bed leveling

M104 S[first_layer_temperature] ; set extruder temp

G92 E0.0

G1 Y-2.0 X179 F2400

G1 Z3 F720

M109 S[first_layer_temperature] ; wait for extruder temp

 

; intro line

G1 X170 F1000

G1 Z0.2 F720

G1 X110.0 E8.0 F900

G1 X40.0 E10.0 F700

G92 E0.0

 

M221 S100 ; set flow

Hi, if you go to the Facebook "Prusa 3d Printer Owners" group you can download the .fff file (from Files section) that I created that has the Simplify 3d profile. I would post here but there are no attachments allowed.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/PrusaOfficial/permalink/2613260848729764/

Here is some gcode with S3d variables that may help you. 

M140 S[bed0_temperature] ; set bed temp
M109 R170 ; wait for bed leveling temp
M190 S[bed0_temperature] ; wait for bed temp

M104 S[extruder0_temperature] ; set extruder temp
M109 S[extruder0_temperature] ; wait for extruder temp

Hi Greg,
attachments are welcome here, but there is a limit to the various formats.

.fff is not an accepted format,

however if you zip the file, then .zip is an accepted format. 

regards Joan

Ok, thanks! I didn't try a zip file before. I went ahead and zipped up the Prusa Mini S3d profile that I am using. It's not perfect, but it works well for me. Hopefully others find it useful.

The profile is a great start, I used your settings and ran a near perfect PLA print. 

 

Thanks!

Thanks for this! Noob question, but I'm curious about the following line in the start script:
M92 E317 ; set steps/unit for extruder

Would this override the new estep value in the new 4.05 version of the firmware?

Glad it is working for you! If you come up with any improvements, please let me know. I have been using it for a while and haven't run into anything significant. I have changed extrusion multiplier, layer heights, temps, etc. - just the usual stuff for different filaments and prints.

Yes, the gcode in the startup script would override any steps in the firmware.  So you may want to comment that line out or remove it all together. Same goes for all the other settings in there for acceleration. I left them in there because thats how it was set up in the Prusa Slicer profile- but honestly I'm not sure they need to be there if you'd rather default to the firmware settings.

I had this question and was provided the following files from Simplify 3D Support.
