    X-axis prints 0.2mm smaller

    Well, spent 3+ hours yesterday working on my gMax, removed the bed, realigned entire frame, made sure that base is square, Z guides are vertical and aligned to one another, aligned Y axis rails and mounted bed carriage on them so it doesn't wobble at all and moves smoothly.

    gMax 1.5 and XL

    I was thinking yesterday to replace A-pillar configuration on my 1.0 with straight vertical pillars. And then I saw this thread today. Gordon, you read my mind, can't wait for conversion :)

    SD card access and very thin filament extrusion

    Alright! I keep answering my own questions. Every FOS-er dream! :) Slic3r does load setting automagically, however! Print, printer and filament tabs each have it's separate settings file! So you have to click little save icon on each of the tabs (three times!) to save all that you changed. I...

    SD card access and very thin filament extrusion

    Argh!!! This is all doe to complatly wrong printer profile! Slic3r does not load settings automagically every time you start it. Got it. I load settings all the time. However, while I was thinkering and calibrating things it turned out that somewhere I probably pressed wrong button and all...
