Firmware Feedback


#1

Like:

• The "Fan Test" in the Maintenance menu is a nice addition and will come in handy when we think the fans may be in need of replacement.

Dislike:

• The missing "Print Again" option at the end of a print job. Am I the only person that ever prints consecutive copies of the same model and is wearing out their scroll wheels selecting the same model over and over and over again when it could be a simple option at the end of a print job?

• The ".zcode" on each and every model name in the model menu is redundant, unnecessary and clutters the model list. Would be nice if it was truncated and excluded on the fly.


#2

Fan test sounds like a great idea.

I occasionally wish I had "Print Again" at the top of the list.

Yes, displaying ".zcode" is completely silly, unless they plan to allow printing of some other file type in the future :)


#3

Interesting errant error message if you cancel a model before it starts to print. Previously it cancelled gracefully and now it throws...  "Error #003 File error Please prepare your model again www.zortrax.com/support".

If u put 2 file .zcode with different name in a SD ... M200 read and display the same name 2 times (the first duplicated in alp. order).

Noted, I believe that next update should have it and that error is going to be fixed for sure.

I’ve copied two random ZCODEs on SD card, put inside printer and there wasn’t any problems, at all.

Could you please send me both ZCODEs so I can make a test?


#7

He Marcin, sorry for the bad feedback, probably was the SD gone, i take another one and there are no problem !


#8

...It seems that this new firmware debounce the rotary switch too ..... :)


#9

The user feedback during auto-calibration is far improved.

The beep on the unload cycle is helpful a ton as well.

Hello folks!

Straight from the Z-offices, here's a sneak peek of an upcoming feature that'll probably make it to the 1.0.5 M200 bugfix.

So the "print again" function will only be available at this point? And if you do a "short press" to exit, it will no longer be available? Not ideal, imo. "Print Again" should be a separate Main Menu item, or at the top of the file list when in the "Models" menu, or the Models menu could have a second level: Reprint or Select a New Model. Select a New Model would take you to the file list.

Showing the last printed file on top of the list is not a bad idea at all, we'll take that into consideration. I'm guessing you want to have an option to raise/lower the bed and maybe perform autocalibration before reprinting the file? 


#13

"Reprint" at the top of the file list would be great. There are many things people might want to do before reprinting; changing the filament would probably be the most common :)


#14

I personally would be extremely happy with either solution and typically don't calibrate or raise/lower the bed between prints unless there was an issue (almost never). Thank you.....thank you.....thank you!

And thank you as well for soliciting our feedback. ;-)

Nice job on the new FW 1.0.5!!

Calibration was faster on the 3 M200s I ran it on this morning with the improved autocalibration logic and prompts.

And most importantly the "Print Again" works like a charm and is very timely with the large repetitive print jobs that I'm in the middle of.........

I can't thank you enough for streamlining repetitive printing!

Kind Regards,

-David

Additionally impressed this morning when I got to work and learned that the new FW exits sleep mode back at the "Print Menu" which allowed me to continue repetitive printing without having to re-select the same job AND if I backed-out it drops me back in the model list right where I left off instead of taking back to the top of my very long model list. Christmas came early this year!! Thank you Zortrax!

I have found 1 small bug in the new FW 1.0.5: If you print a model that had a "Pause" set in it with ZSuite and at the successful conclusion of printing that piece you let your M200 go to "Sleep", when you awaken your printer it brings up the wrong dialog box and you can't seem to exit it. This only happens (in my experience) if your model had a ZSuite pause set........

David, what are those black parts used for in the first picture?
