In Part 1, we covered the Basic view mode of MatterControl. You can view it here if you missed it.
Part 2 covered the Standard view mode. You can view it here if you missed it.
Part 3 covers the Advanced view mode. More specifically, part 3 only covers the settings unique to the Advanced view mode. To change to Advanced view mode, click “Settings & Controls” on the Home Screen and then select “Advanced” from the drop down menu.
We’re going to jump right into the settings that are only viewable in Advanced mode.

That covers all the Advanced View settings under the “General” tab. Next is the “Filament” Tab
That covers all of the Filament settings in the Advanced View. The Printer tab is not visible in either the Standard or the Basic view mode. Before we proceed, it’s important to note that changing some of these settings can cause damage to your 3D printer if done improperly. Do not make changes if you are uncertain of what you are doing. We do not take any responsibility for damage that occurs due to improper settings.
That’s it! We made it through all of the settings in MatterControl. You now have all the information needed to become a master printer. While it may seem a bit overwhelming, it won’t take long to start understanding how each of the settings affects your prints. The best way to get good at printing is to just start printing. If you’re unsure of anything, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re happy to help.
As always, Happy Printing!
