print Studio (printer setting)

Hello

 

I exported makerbot , ultimaker 3d printer file and opened it but didn't find where to change the build dimensions of my custom printer.
I have delta printer with 60 cm height and 30 cm diameter

 

Thanks

Hey There!

I don't have much experience with Print Studio, but I did find this thread: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/design-validate-document/autodesk-print-studio-printer-settings/td-p/5...

Looks like you can edit the printerTypes.json file and define some custom settings inside there, though I don't know much about it. Though it does look promising:

 

File located at: C:\Users\[YOUR USER]\AppData\Local\Autodesk\Print Studio\printDB\

You might be limited to a rectangular area though. 

Hopefully this can help give you a starting point. If you figure something out, be sure to post an update though!

I know this is an old topic but OP never responded. I tried it out and didn't get very far, at least for a Delta. I tried adding the entry below to no effect. It didn't recognize "type": "delta", and items like "bed_file_id", "default_material_id", "default_profile_id", etc... seem to hold some significance and all point to files that are compiled in an unreadable format. That's a big no-go for custom printers, which is a shame. I was looking forward to using this with Fusion360 and hopefully getting rid of my previous slicers that have been nothing but trouble. With custom printer setup, including non-cartesian style printers, and this could potentially give Simplify3D a run for it's money. Which would be great, as It's prohibitively expensive for some, especially in an educational environment.

 

Here's the custom printer I added to printerTypes.json

Where is the equivalent data to printerTypes.json stored in the Mac OSX version of Print Studio? 

 

I have looked quite hard (including grepping my entire HD for "Makerbot") to see where the data might be but no luck so far.

I have only managed to find EmberConfig.json and TorpedoConfig.json in the PrintStudio resources, neither of which seem to be what I need to change the steps-per-mm of my Makerbot clone.
