RE: Adams Template builder

Hi bj7777,

Well, the solution for your issue is to following the next steps :

1. search after acar folder and open it,

2. search after acar file and open it with Notepad (acar file is a .cfg file),

3. modify the acar.cfg file : !ENVIRONMENT MDI_ACAR_USERMODE template_builder .

4. save the update and close the file.

5. now search after .acar.cfg in your Windows User folder (something like "C:\User\...\.acar.cfg"),

6. open the file .acar.cfg and modify it as : ENVIRONMENT MDI_ACAR_USERMODE expert .

7. save the update and close the file.

8. reopen ADAMS Car.

Some of these have very respectable build volumes – but when it comes to “large-format,” the machines will need their own dedicated floor space. Large-format 3D printers have significant build volumes and are most often found in professional settings, like manufacturing facilities and R&D centers. Download Now
