Quick access to open a new STL file. You can also open several files on the same tray.
From the "File" tab open a new STL file, save the contents of your trays for future printing, transform your STL into a Gcode, and access newly opened objects.
From the "Preferences" tab, change the language of the software (taken into account the next time the software is opened) or of the Dagoma 3D printer model.
This area represents the printing volume of your printer. The open object will appear gray if it exceeds the printing volume. You can duplicate this object or open others to fill your tray.
Right-clicking on an object displays a submenu:
- Center the object on the tray
- Delete the object
- Multiply the object
- Divide the object into several parts
Here you can access another viewing mode. Switching to layer mode allows you to see the printer's actual work, such as filling and trajectories.
Choose here the brand of the filament you use in "PLA Chromatik" and its color in "Generic". Please note that all filaments in the list have been tested. If you use a filament other than those in the list, the printing may fail.
Choose here the printing parameters, filling and quality (below we will explain all this).
Here are other more specific parameters. These are additions to be made according to the shape of the object. We will explain these elements below.
With this button you can set up a filament change. Just below you have a video that shows the programming of a break.
By clicking on "Prepare for printing" you will validate your preparation. If an SD card is already in the reader, the file is saved directly on it.
Otherwise, a dialog box opens to choose the saving path.
The file is saved under the name "dagoma0.g" It is the only file name that allows you to start printing.
All the practical information can be found here. Printing time is estimated and may vary.
This button only appears if an object is selected. It allows you to change the orientation of the part. Rings appeared around the part to manoeuvre it. By default, the part will move in 15
This button only appears if an object is selected. It allows you to change the size of the part. Uncheck the lock to change a dimension in one axis only.
This button only appears if an object is selected. It is used to symmetrize. If you're wondering, yes, it's useful for something.
