Re: Infill angles don't work top/bottom solid layers

I might be wrong but I seem to remember all my profiles having bottom/top fill layers and still being able to control how the infill pattern appeared on top previously with those settings. It's fixable by just disabling top/bottom fill layer and setting infill to 100, but it really comes off like a ...

Infill angles don't work top/bottom solid layers

I seem to remember custom infill angles working fine in 2x versions. Now it seems that if there are a set number of top/bottom solid layers custom infill angles will no longer will affect those.

Visual gcode editor.

Currently I use an unsupported printer with S3D (craftbot) that has some different gcode commands than what's common. I use scripts and use a text editor to modify the gcode to operate properly and to insert custom stuff like pauses. It would be quite nice if S3D has a built-in tool that would make ...

Re: gap between shells/no infill

Lowering extrusion width would close the gap. Raising it would actually do it too, albeit with less shells. It doesn't want to extrude lines or infill when it's lower than the nozzle width because that shouldn't fit. Lowering the extrusion width would force it to try and do so. Ideally, it would put...

Re: Bug: Shell Convergence = ugly bulges

+1 to fix this, I've had to add multiple processes with different number of shells at different heights to fix some prints because of this. Yeah that's what I've had to do also, manually find where they overlap and truncate the shells before then (or occasionally infill, since it tends to follow ou...

Re: Incorrect hole sizes

You might be seeing this bug: http://www.forum.simplify3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1182 When shells converge on top of each other, say you use 2 shells and there's an inner layer of shells and an outer like a donut or pipe and it gets narrower, the inside shells (non-perimeters) will overlap complete...

Re: [Feature request] Material cost > 99.99

Faberdashery 1.75 filament filament ends up being north of 100 per KG when you work out costs.
Not a huge deal, can just do 1/10 and multiply, but it is a little odd that it's capped at 2 digits.

Re: under estimated print time / print quality

the holes in the surface can be from too high a temp combined with too low of an infill. the plastic gets too soft and gooey and breaks apart during the infill process. also what helps is to be sure you turn the "random infill placement" off. also under extrusion and too low a temp as oldward said ...

Bug: Shell Convergence = ugly bulges

There's an issue with the way converging shells terminate into each other when encountering a narrowing / tapering path. Shells will not terminate until they are completely overlap each other. When fine detailed areas have 2 layers completely overlapping, this creates a bulge instead of a smooth tra...
