Prints poorly after update

Post by boarddesigner » Wed Nov 30, 2016 5:39 pm

After spending many hours. (MANY)
Tuning, fine tuning, tuning again.... I had gotten mattercontrol to work extremely well on my rostock max v2.
However, about a week or so ago I got a prompt from within the mattercontrol GUI that an update was available. So I blindly ran update. This turned out to be a devastating mistake!!! The update wiped out every one of the settings I had painstakingly developed. It is now a week later and I do have printer somewhat back in shape the prints are still a mess. retraction not working correctly, I have pitting throughout. To say the least I am not a happy camper. I put in a service request to mattercontrol. They have yet to respond. This is adding insult to injury.

1. Has this happened to others recently?
2. Is there a suitable replacement to mattercontrol that is comparable in functionality?

Thanks all/any for your input

I am also having problems with MatterControl since the update. I have a Rostock Max V2 with the upgraded HE280 hotend. I had to remove it and go back to 1.5. Unfortunately, for some reason I thought a bugfix had come out so I reinstalled today after a weekend of really good prints only to find everything going horribly wrong after the upgrade back to 1.6.

One of the problems I have seen is that MatterControl turns off the heater in the hotend, as well as the bed, which makes for terrible problems and failed prints.

I also had an issue where my prints came out really "spongy" as if the perimeter of the object did not print (only the infill).
I hope they can get this resolved.

I agree, something is quite off after the update. I think it is in the slicer (Matterslice) not MaterControl as I can change to a different slicer engine and it doesn't give me these results. This is a part which is 0.4mm thick thus should print with one perimeter all the way around yet since the update it is printing all these bumps all over the place causing a ton of moves which just make the part look horrible.

I just ran the update and the Max V2 printer is unhappy.

I have .9 degree (400 step per rev) steppers in it. it clearly switched it back to 200 steps per rev.
How do I fix this?

Did the MC update actually reset all the EEPROM settings in my printer???? If so, they should be shot.
