Printer Settings for Prusa Slicer ?

by Tornadix

I've just read an article that compared a few free slicers. And the winner was the PrusaSlicer.

I'd like to use it with my Tornado, because I didn't get the settings completely right with Slic3r anyway. The profile on the sd card provided with the Tornado was for a much older Slic3r version, so things were missing. It worked, but the results were sub-optimal.

I've already installed the Prusa Slicer and did some basic setup as custom printer with Marlin firmware. Whow, there are loads of settings ... more than the original Slic3r ...
I'm mostly interested in the "Printer Settings" tab, sections "Custom G-Code" and "Machine Limits".

Does anyone successfully use this slicer with the Tornado? Could you attach your .ini file(s)? My Tornado is an older version, still having the MKS Base mainboard and the Tevo V1.1 firmware.

Installing bltouch is driving me CRAZY!

by KiwiChristian

Ok, so i got a Tornado this year.

Got a Makerbase 3D Touch Sensor ( https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32890485972.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.27424c4dG5ohpX ) and it is driving me mad!

I have it attached and connected.

But, i dont know how to update my firmware.

yeah, yeah, i have seen the videos. They don't help me.

My windows 10 computer does not recognize the printer when i plug it in.

I have tried several usb ports.

Is there a way to "flash" it using an sd card?

I have arduino installed on my pc and cura.

i am totally ignorant of arduino.

Please can somebody help?

by mpararols

Hi all,

I've been looking if I found a Tevo Tornado model to position standalone parts but I don't found anything.

Someone has a model of the structure and the parts?

Aluminum Bed Replacement For Broken Glass Bed

by Hilbe

A friend of mine made this 1/8 inch thick aluminum bed for the Tornado after I broke my second glass bed. No worries now!

He’s selling it on Etsy for anyone wanting to upgrade. Cheaper than the glass one too!
