Prime Pillar Tube Shape For Warp Prone Filament

Reason for Request Square objects have 4 extreme stress points at the 4 corners , which tubes do not have. Stress points are prone to warping. Filament that's very highly prone to warping (such as polypropylene) can cause a square prime pillar to lift and detach from the build platform, messing up ...

Re: QIDI I-fast Air Circulation Fan Control

Simplify3D supports running an external program for post processing. I didn't know that was possible. I did a bit of digging around and found that it's pretty easy to do. That gives people a lot of freedom. Quite nice actually. For example, you can put this in the Post Processing section, if you're ...

Re: QIDI I-fast Air Circulation Fan Control

I got it working. Using the Post Processing tab in the Scripts tab I entered this: {REPLACE "M106 S255 P2" "M106 T-2; QIDI I-fast air circulation fan on."} {REPLACE "M106 S0 P2" "M107 T-2; QIDI I-fast air circulation fan off."} This works to control the QIDI I...

QIDI I-fast Air Circulation Fan Control

I am currently using Simplify3D with a QIDI I-fast. It works great, but some features are missing. Is there a way to add the QIDI I-fast air circulation fan control to the Cooling tab as you can with the parts fans? If I use the Cooling tab and add a QIDI I-fast air circulation fan as Environmental ...

Re: Gigabot or not?

I am not surprised. The bed is aluminum after all. While the bed I use is not that off, that 0.020" (0.508mm) variation is reasonable for aluminum. The best aluminum typically has a flatness rating of 0.015"-0.020" for 1/4" thick sheets. For better flatness, thicker sheets need t...

Re: "Erode First Layer" Feature Request

+1

Having a Horizontal size compensation setting that's specific to the 1st layer would solve this nicely. I posted about this in another thread. It seems that this subject keeps popping up.

Re: Programmed Pause

+ 1 This is quite useful for a lot of different purposes. Although there are ways to do this already, if you dig deep into the software. But they aren't so convenient. There are times when I want to embed magnets into a printed part. There are 2 ways to do this. One method requires making 2 profiles...

Re: Decreasing speed of small perimeters

+1, This Small Perimeters feature is one advantage Slic3r has over Simplify3D. This is handy, especially when printing very fast. For long straight lines, you can print quite rapidly without much quality issues. But for sharp corners or small radius turns, printing fast can easily cause quality issu...

Re: Reduced Edge First Layer

+1 I ran into this issue the other day. Yesterday I had to spend some time post processing a part to remove this 1st layer swell because I forgot to account for it in my model. On the Gigabot prints I typically get a swell of 0.18mm on the perimeter of the 1st layer when I print a 1st layer at 0.27m...

Re: Gigabot or not?

My experience with the Gigabot XL version 3 so far is the following when compared to a MakerBot Replicator 2, MakerBot Replicator 2X, and FlashForge Dreamer: The Gigabot XL prints quieter. Prints with less ripples/waves. Print dimensional accuracy is higher and more precise (side walls are amazingly...
