In Part 1, we covered the Basic view mode of MatterControl. You can view it here if you missed it. Part 2 will cover all the settings found in the Standard view.
Standard view provides an excellent balance of control and simplicity. To change to Standard view mode, click “Settings” on the Home Screen and then Select standard mode from the drop down menu.
Note: We recently released version 1.2.3 of MatterControl. There were significant changes made to the layout and order of the settings and menus in 1.2.3. This guide refers to those changes. Please upgrade to the latest version.
This is the same 1” cube sliced with 2mm width. You can see that the outer walls are much thicker. The top and bottom will be this thick as well.
Tip: Lower layer heights (<.20mm) require a thicker Width setting in order to properly fill in top and bottom layers for water tight parts.
In Basic view, we can only choose to generate support material or not. In Standard view, we can adjust the support material settings. “Generate Support Material” must be selected in order to print support material for your part.
The Filament tab allows us to change the settings for our extruder and heated bed.
You're now an expert when it comes to the Standard view in MatterControl.
Keep reading Part 3 of this series, which covers the Advanced View and all of the settings that are currently controllable.
As always, Happy Printing!
