Tim and Team,

is it possible to add a menu to Power Pack Pro so that those of us who use 3D printers different than those listed can set up volume requirements for our printers in PowerPack? I use primarily Deltas (Okay, I only use deltas and half my FFD clients do as well) and i also have clients that are using different build volumes and being to create a volume would be useful.

Hi Michael

The 3D Printer definition are located in a text file in the Environ folder called print3D.ini.

To add a printer, edit the file and add the following information. Values are in inches.

Name= FlashForge_Creator
Length= 8.9
Width= 5.7
Height= 5.9
Layer= 0.00393700787
