When 99.99% of the rest of the world doesn't need it.... Even high end 3d Printers use STL/3MF files as inputs.

Re: .stp or .STEP file for Simplify3D

Hi Simplify 3D. Would it be possible to import a .stp, .STEP file directly into the slicer and process that instead of a .stl as a .stp will give a much better result and better accuracy. Define "Much better result".... In what way? I get near injection molded results with a medium res STL.

Re: Combining Walls & Infill

Post a factory file, you got something way out of whack. I usually run infill to perimeter overlap at 30%. But that doesn't have anything to do with your 4 walls not being solid together.

Re: Live Reload

What I'd like to see, maybe add it to a feature request. I would like to be able to relink to a new model by right clicking a model in the list. Call it Relink Model, so if a model name changes, and it often does because of versioning, it can easily be relinked. We haven't had any other reports that...

Re: S3D fails to build bridge supports

Didn't see you had combined set to 7 which isn't really feasible. No more than 2 combined usually. A small area doesn't have to have bridging. That preview looks correct. Looks like that bridging area you are referring to is mostly outlines, there is a setting to bridge outlines also.

Re: S3D fails to build bridge supports

Maybe change your minimum bridge area. Those spots are pretty small so it probably isn't applying bridge settings with the default value. It is under Other tab, Unsupported Area Threshold. Change it to like 10, or less.

Your settings are guaranteed to fail without infill up to that point. That little top infill issue is the least of your problems.

Re: Install Security on Mac

That's not very professional.... I see nothing wrong with the delivery method, it's been like that for decades. Not all software needs to be on a "store" which is a relatively new concept. I'm sure there are some licensing challenges being on a store, there are fees, and can be major delay...

Re: v5.0.2: Scale % NOT working/staying

Yayyyy. Hopefully this works in 5.1

Added an option to display the cumulative scaling percentage that has been applied to each imported model for easy confirmation of past adjustments
