@Makuna what are you using as control software?
I have a FlashForge Dreamer and I'm really pissed with the latest slicing app they released
many peope talk about Simplify3D, but it costs $150 and I would like an oppinion before spending them for that

S3D is the best slicer I had

hi, is there an MQTT library working directly in this core ?

@me-no-dev Cura, works well, missing a few features but mostly plug and play with Lulzbot providing profiles.

The biggest issue with 3D printing has not been the software, its been Bed Adhesion and Layer Adhesion. I built a enclosure for the layer adhesion; Thingiverse; but I am now on my fourth solution for bed adhesion. PET sucks, PEI sucks, glass with glue (ABS/GlueStick) so far has been ok, and I am now trying the PRINTinZ from Adafruit which seems good so far.

Another newbie question, im having an impossible time getting serial output out of my esp, its running NodeMCU, so it should be at 9600 baud, and i flash an arduino serial program to it then open serial moniter at 9600 and it just spits out nothing but a random startup message thats just a random string of ASCII
Anything i was meant to do, this is currently the NODEMCU dev board, i had more luck getting lua to run on my old ESP-01 than this

@SupaNova You are setting the speed in your sketch setup() like...

  Serial.begin(115200); //  in your case 9600
  Serial.println("Alive and well...");

I found that I often get some garbage on first power on (boot rom debug serial out at some unknown baud rate), but that it works fine. I also found for debugging, I put a sleep(10000) at the top of my Setup to give me time to open the monitor so I can see all output.

Yeah, i have tried adding delays and all
This is my entire sketch, this alone should work right
void setup() {
Serial.begin(9600);
delay(2000);
Serial.println("Serial ON");
}

void loop() {
// put your main code here, to run repeatedly:

}

Other than that random stuff on power on, i cant get anything out of this what so ever

i never used Lua, but if you install the arduino core instead of Lua i garantie to you that your serial sketch work

@SupaNova random stuff can be read at 74880 bauds. Make sure you are setting your bauds rate from your serial listener software to 9600, otherwise you will not see/see random thing.
