Setting up the virtual printer
The AstroBox Software comes with a handy virtual printer so that you can test without the need of a real 3D Printer attached. Here's how you can set it up
- Edit or create, the
printer-profile.yamlfile in your settings directory (by default
[AstroBox Directory]/local). Change or add the line:
- Edit or create the
virtual-printer-settings.yamlfile in the same directory to guide your printing simulation. All values are in seconds. Here's a sample:
connection: 3.0 heatingUp: 5.0 printJob: 10.0
- Restart AstroBox any time you make changes to these files
