Artillery Sidewinder & Genius GUI - "DiBlue" Sneak Peek and Pre-Release Info...

SpaceyUI_DiBlue
"DiBlue" GUI Option for the Marlin Advanced 1.1.9 Firmware is finished...  Introducing a clean, "Techy Glow" GUI option for our Marlin Advanced Firmware for both the Artillery Sidewinder X1 and Genius models.Inspired by my audio control panels in the dark, and a pretty radical suggestion from my son. It's being released on 05/01/2020, but... It's being pre-released this coming weekend during our 3D-Nexus Live stream on 04/24 10PM EST to our followers on Twitch, so stop in and get it- otherwise ya gotta wait.  You also get a sneak peak of another GUI Codenamed "Skittles". Whats not to love? In case you haven't noticed, 3D Nexus has been doing weekly Live Streams including (Sometimes, ramping up towards a set schedule) a daily Help/Q&A/Hanging Out series as a way for users to get more out of their 3D printing experience, with a Discord channel set up to show off user prints, your help images, and more. We...

Artillery X1 and Genius: Why Haven't I Done a Marlin 2.x.x Firmware yet? ABL Sensors?

ARTILLERY_NO_MARLIN2
The simple explanation is as I understand it, there is no advantage to doing so right now. You have to look at exactly what Marlin 2 itself is all about, and how this applies to the current design of these (and other 8 bit boards in printers already on the market) In other words, its too early. Will it help you get better prints? No.  Adding to this further, Marlin 2 is in its early stages of development. Someone out there may want to contribute to further refining the 8 bit compatibility but for the average user who wants to just use the printer and have access to the commonly asked for features, Marlin 2 could create headaches between bugs (see the 2.x.x release notes HERE) and just updating weekly if your version-OCD gets the best of you. It's going to be a trainwreck for awhile and I cant confidently offer up a release...

Further exploration will be temperatures, retraction, and speed. Even though the default retraction is set high, its for a reason- pushing plastic at high speeds as the default 70 or higher needs it. I settle in most of the time at or around 50mms and retraction down to somewhere around 2-3. I use the...
