    all of them.. you should be able to export all your config files from slicer in one file.

    goto file export config. something like that

    Hi there!
    Awesome test, really good.
    I was wondering about the settings, I usually use Kisslicer as software for the gcode, did you try it? Any suggestion for settings?
    Thanks guys! great community

    Hey Harry maybe you should create a new thread for slices people can state the specs and upload the settings might not be bad idea

    Actually that is a really great idea.
    I completely agree with Jeff if it will be possible to make a thread like that

    Sliciverse has now been born. Please find Sliciverse under the "The Printer" tab.

    Ok so I'm confused? Do you need the boro glass and if so how thick should i get? Also, do you use any of that slurry or painters tape when you print or is the glass fine?

    Hey Zach, are you getting the ABS or PLA Version? The PLA Version comes with an acrylic bed. The ABS does not. I use the Boro (10x10, 1/8Th Thick) on the heat bed, even if the heat bed is off. I usually use painters tape but tape is not needed on the glass (For PLA). I haven't done much ABS printing yet.

    I'm planning on purchasing the abs and pla version. Is it a necessity to get the boro glass or is it just a convenience? I just want to factor in the additional costs with the printer. Also, have you hooked up the viki? That is an additional item I might be purchasing if it is worth it

    Harry, correct me if I'm wrong here. The machine comes with boro glass.

    I don't think a viki in specific is a must, but you do want to get something so you don't have to be tethered to your printer. Aside from the annoyance factor, you run a higher risk of communication issues and failed prints when you're running over USB.

    I don't think it comes with Boro, That would be nice though, I'd rather that then a filament holder :p

    I do believe Harry said he had to buy the boro glass. I plan on keeping my printer right next to my computer in a room in my house so the not being right next to my computer isn't too bad i was just wondering if there was any major benefits that would make the viki a beneficiary add-on. What do you mean when you say "a viki in specific"? Are there other boards like the viki?

    So what you are saying is that for ease of use and shear looks, it might just be better off to go with the viki?

    And not dropping data in communication due to whatever your computer happens to be doing while you're printing.
