Can you Please add this printer, it was all I could afford, so I got it. Switched from Cura to yours such different outcomes from the same print...I love it

RE: Anycubic Mega

All the non prusa printer profiles have been submitted by users.  So if you want that printer adding then you and other owners of that printer need to work out a valid profile and then submit it to prusa over on github.  

Its not that hard to add a basic printer profile to get it printing, it takes more work to tune it to get good printing, and only someone with that printer can do that.

I am also interested in seting up a profile for my Mega S is there a template that can be used to develop the profile for sharing?

RE: Anycubic Mega

A good starting point for developing profiles with a new printer is to gain access to the serial console (e.g. using pronterface or Octoprint) and enter the M303 command. This will give you a dump of settings stored in EEPROM. These may not be ideal, but do show the manufacturer's default settings that you can use as a starting point. Enter these values on Printer Settings->Machine limits and use them as upper boundaries for speed, acceleration and jerk settings. Then it's just a question of playing with settings to find which yield the best trade-off between print speed and quality for your purposes.

Here's an example from my Artillery Sidewinder:

end: M503
Recv: echo: G21 ; (mm)
Recv:
Recv: echo:Filament settings: Disabled
Recv: echo: M200 D1.75
Recv: echo: M200 D0
Recv: echo:Steps per unit:
Recv: echo: M92 X80.12 Y80.12 Z399.78 E445.00
Recv: echo:Maximum feedrates (units/s):
Recv: echo: M203 X200.00 Y200.00 Z20.00 E40.00 <- maximum speeds (feedrate)
Recv: echo:Maximum Acceleration (units/s2):
Recv: echo: M201 X1500 Y1500 Z500 E5000 <- maximum acceleration
Recv: echo:Acceleration (units/s2): P<print_accel> R<retract_accel> T<travel_accel>
Recv: echo: M204 P1000.00 R1000.00 T1000.00 <- maximum acceleration when printing, retracting
Recv: echo:Advanced: Q<min_segment_time_us> S<min_feedrate> T<min_travel_feedrate> X<max_x_jerk> Y<max_y_jerk> Z<max_z_jerk> E<max_e_jerk>
Recv: echo: M205 Q20000 S0.00 T0.00 X10.00 Y10.00 Z0.25 E6.00 <- maximum jerk values
Recv: echo:Home offset:
Recv: echo: M206 X0.00 Y0.00 Z0.00
Recv: echo:PID settings:
Recv: echo: M301 P14.58 I1.14 D46.57
Recv: echo: M304 P244.21 I45.87 D325.08
Recv: ok

RE: Anycubic Mega

I'm not sure what Prusa's process is for submitting profiles to be included in future versions of Prusa Slicer, best would be check out their Slicer github for info and raise a ticket in issues if you cant find anything ( https://github.com/prusa3d/PrusaSlicer ). 

If you just want to share profiles then that's easy.  You can use Slicers Export Config (or Export Config Bundle) to save profiles and then share the saved .ini files.  Anyone else can then import them into their setup.  Don't forget anytime you share a saved project .3mf file the profiles used for that project are also loaded.  If you like the profile in the project then you can save them manually too.  I find that's a good way of checking out a profile first to see what it contains before making the decision to save it to my settings.

The only place I am familiar with is on github in the source code.  I cursory search finds https://github.com/prusa3d/PrusaSlicer/tree/master/resources/profiles

RE: Anycubic Mega

Hello, do you have anyone some modifications of mega?

I am using prusa slicer and dont want to learn using CURA (hope that prusa slicer will sometimes implement tree support)....

I have reworked for direct extruder, and i am looking now for settings of change color of filament to change it for remove of filament to shorter time of remove and add filament and the second issue what i am looking for, why is pause function non working (for input magnets or anything during printing).... does anyone know how to solve this? thanks a lot 😉
