So I FINALLY got my beta unit back. Have a look at the video.

Btw sorry for my long absence. I've been wrapped up with my CNC machine and bored waiting for the eventual return of my micro.

As promised like two months ago.

How to load in unload filament video. One is internal, one is external. I recommend external.

Thanks for the great howto videos! As you can guess, we all know how hard waiting for the micro can be ;-)

In your video you showed in short the adding of a new filement profile. Could you show a screen of the possible settings when using custom filament?

Have you tried printing with another slicer using standard g-code like cura? This would be a temporary solution for non windows users.

I'll post a pic or a short video showing some of the menu options currently tomorrow morning. I have not tried loading in g-code from another slicer. I'm not too sure I know how too. I'm willing to try if you give me a few tips.

These should be put in the how-to section of the Wiki. *hint hint* :roll:

Also, I enjoy these videos ALOT and they will keep me somewhat busy until my Micro arrives. :)

Flyboy seems to be hard-working! Thanks again for the video (of your turtle) 8-)

I have one spool of really cheap filament 8€/kg. This was the only time I needed raft printing on buildtak to avoid lifting edges.

But I do not believe that this is a filament problem. Maybe M3D has problems with bedleveling?

could be. The buildtak stickers work best in a 'sweet spot' distance. if the micro cant deliver to maintain a cetrain distance to the printbed (yet), it would kind of circumvent the stickers biggest advantage.
